President Donald Trump Just Took The "Montreal Test" For Mental Health

Trump's heart exam was normal, with regular rhythm and no abnormal sounds, which Jackson said led him to conclude with confidence that Trump "has a very strong and a very probable possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues".

"I get exercise. I mean I walk, I this, I that", Trump said in an interview with Reuters Wednesday, a day after Dr. Ronny Jackson released his assessment of the president's physical activities.

The fast-food-loving Mr Trump praised Dr Jackson, but seemed wary of the not-so-subtle suggestion to use the White House's exercise facilities.

Overall, Trump is doing fine health-wise, though Dr. Jackson said the president is a bit too sedentary and has high cholesterol.

"He's very sharp. He's very articulate when he speaks to me", said Jackson, who works in close proximity to the president.

Jackson said, "Some people exercise, some people don't". Are your cognitive skills as good as Trump's? The doctor said he had "absolutely no concerns" about Trump's cognitive abilities.

Trump's body mass index, or BMI, of 29.9 puts him in the category of being overweight for his height.

CNN doctor Sanjay Gupta claims Trump has heart disease
The physician spent roughly an hour answering reporters' questions about Trump's exam, many of which focused on his mental state. Jackson added that he believed the president's good health was in part due to the fact that he didn't drink or smoke.

Trump has experienced several recent episodes in which he appeared to slur his words, adding to concerns about his health.

But nothing about Jackson's findings suggest heart disease, as Gupta suggests.

Dogged by questions about his mental stability after a tell-all book - "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" - claims he's "an idiot surrounded by clowns", Trump boasted about passing a cognitive examination and then took at shot at his Oval Office predecessors for not handling the crisis with North Korea. He also takes a low-dose aspirin for heart health.

"One thing that really stands out to me is his cardiac health", he said, citing the President's lifelong avoidance of alcohol and tobacco.

US President Donald Trump is officially obese, his physician has revealed today.

Cognitive assessments aren't routine in standard physicals, though they recently became covered in Medicare's annual wellness visits for seniors.
