Trump in 'excellent health', gets 30/30 cognitive score

Trump in 'excellent health', gets 30/30 cognitive score

Donald Trump has aced a test on his mental health - likely putting to rest days of Washington political gossip.

Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) who was present, contradicted him and said the president repeatedly used the racist insult.

The President weighs 239 pounds. "He and his team took great care of all of us for many years". A calcium score of over 400 would be more worrisome for heart disease.

The 1.9m tall US President is considered overweight and borderline obese at 108kg. Jackson said that Trump now does not exercise regularly.

"It is called genetics".

"The one thing that stands out more than anything to me is his cardiac health", Jackson said. "We talked about diet and exercise a lot. I get more exercise than people think".

Trump is also not alone in his lack of interest in exercise.

Jackson said he and the president agreed that a reasonable weight loss goal for Trump would be 10 to 15 pounds over the next year.

"All clinical data indicates that the president is now very healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency", Dr. Ronny Jackson said at the daily White House press briefing.

Murphy wraps up busy second day as governor
Murphy said he would take "a salary" during a roundtable event in Newark on the minimum wage and paid sick leave. Phil Murphy repeatedly struck tones of service and inclusion during his inaugural address in Trenton yesterday.

"I get exercise. I mean I walk, I this, I that", Trump told Reuters. "Some people just have great genes". "You know, I told the president that if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old".

Sanjay Gupta, the network's chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump's coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease.

The Montreal Cognitive Assessment is one of an assortment of tests that give doctors one piece of information to help determine if trouble's brewing.

Trump has faced growing questions about his mental health, prompting dozens of psychologists, psychiatrists and mental health professionals to send a letter to the president's physician on Thursday urging him to evaluate Trump's neurological health.

The military doctor said it was evidence that Trump does not suffer from mental issues that could prevent him from performing his duties as president.

Jackson, too, is befuddled at how the President is healthy.

He added that Trump "doesn't sleep much", estimating that the president sleeps four to five hours a night.

That number puts Trump on the cusp - but just under - the obesity mark. Jackson fielded questions at Tuesday's White House press briefing for roughly an hour.
