  • '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".

Trump, who has an affinity for fast food, said he'd be willing to work on the food aspect. "10 to 15 pounds". A copy of Trump's NY driver's license obtained by POLITICO listed Trump's height as 6-foot-2, instead of the 6-foot-3.

"Most of us could lose a couple of pounds", he said, before scanning the Reuters reporters in the room and pronouncing them in "pretty good shape". The doctor added that Trump does not use tobacco or alcohol, one of the reasons he is in good health generally.

President Trump should lose some weight, exercise more and scale back on his beloved Big Macs, but his flawless score on a cognitive test suggests there's "no reason whatsoever" to doubt his mental fitness, his doctor said.

President Trump does take medication in a bid to lower his higher-than-recommended cholesterol level of 233, however, as well as daily anti-baldness pills.

"It's called genetics", Jackson said.

Apart from this, Trump has no problems in vision, head, ears, nose, and throat. "I don't know. Some people have great genes".

Trump is well known for questioning whether exercise is beneficial and doesn't appear to get any beyond golfing with a cart.

Mr. Jackson held an extraordinary news conference at the White House that lasted for about an hour.

The doctor told reporters Trump scored 30 out of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which according to its website is a "cognitive screening test created to assist Health Professionals in the detection of mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease". Tests of the liver, kidney and thyroid were all normal.
