  • President Trump's Medical Exam Fuels Flurry of 'Girther' Conspiracy Theories

Dr. Ronny Jackson, the presidential physician, is expected to brief reporters at the White House Tuesday on the results of President Donald Trump's first physical exam since taking office after deeming the 71-year-old president to be "in excellent health" in a brief statement released soon after the check-up's completion on Friday.

"I have no concerns about his cognitive ability or neurological functions", Navy Rear Adm Dr Ronny Jackson told reporters at an extraordinary press conference at the White House yesterday after Trumps first physical examination as U.S. president.

Trump also takes aspirin daily to prevent heart disease, a multivitamin and applies a cream called ivermectin, as needed, to treat skin condition rosacea, Jackson said.

Being overweight, or in this case borderline obese, does increase Trump's risk for diabetes, heart disease and high cholesterol.

Jackson said he sees Trump in the White House daily and has never seen signs of mental illness.

"All clinical data indicates that the president is now very healthy, and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency. the presidents overall health is excellent", said Jackson.

But Jackson did say he had concerns about Trump's diet and exercise and has recommended some changes.

Trump was 70 when he took office on January 20, 2017, making him the oldest person ever elected to the presidency.

She said the test, though useful for detecting Alzheimer's and the like, indicates little about "his high functioning, his frontal-lobe functioning, that we're questioning".

President Donald Trump requested he do something a little different for his annual exam: a cognitive assessment.

"He has absolutely no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever", Dr Jackson said. The test instructions describe it as a rapid screening instrument to check for mild cognitive dysfunction that takes about 10 minutes to complete. "I told them that next week Mr. Trump is gonna be tested, physical exam, and I was wondering if they were going to run the MoCA test on him, jokingly".

At the recommendation of the White House doctor, Trump has agreed to go on a diet and exercise program.

Trump scored 30 out of 30 on the test, Jackson said. Some people have just great genes.

Jackson said he wasn't anxious about the fact that Trump only reportedly sleeps four to five hours a night.

During a press conference Tuesday, the doctor was asked how the president could possibly be healthy with a diet loaded with fast food and up to 12 Diet Cokes a day. A Democratic bill in Congress cosponsored by Toledo Democrat Marcy Kaptur would establish an "Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity" to determine whether the president is mentally or physically unable to discharge the powers and duties of office.

Jackson says Trump is healthy and should remain so for the remainder of his presidency.

Speaking to news media Tuesday, Nasreddine stressed that while Trump's ideal score was generally good news with regard to the president's memory, it didn't offer anything near a complete psychological profile.

Throughout his campaign for the White House and beyond, Trump used attacks to dismiss "fake news" media outlets and reports he did not like.

That reluctance was not limited to the president's supporters but extended to those who feared retribution if they voiced any opposition to Trump.
