  • 'Fit For Duty': White House Physician Sees No Concerns About Trump's Health

But Trump's exam has taken on heightened scrutiny amid questions about his mental fitness.

But the 71-year-old president performed "exceedingly well" on the test Jackson said, receiving a flawless score.

The doctor said he had "absolutely no concerns" about Mr Trump's cognitive abilities.

Jackson said that Trump asked him to conduct a cognitive test on him, even though it was not required by law.

The White House doctor announced today that Trump was administered the Montreal cognitive test and aced it with a score of 30 on 30.

Jackson describes Trump as "very sharp" and "very articulate when he speaks to me". "What can I tell you?"

"I feel very confident that he has a very strong and a very probably possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues", said Dr Jackson.

Mishori said Trump's vital signs, blood tests and physical examinations suggest "he seems to be on track, what you would want to see in a 71-year-old overweight male".

"The White House released details about President Donald Trump's health on Friday after his annual medical exam - and numbers don't lie".
