Despite questions swirling about the president's cognitive abilities given reports that he sometimes repeats himself during meetings, Jackson said that Trump scored a 30 out of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment - self described as a "cognitive screening test created to assist Health Professionals in the detection of mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease".

Presidential physician Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, who was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2013, said that he wasn't planning on giving the commander-in-chief any cognitive tests.

The doctor said: "He's very sharp, he's very articulate around me, I've no indication to be concerned about his thought process".

"I think it's important to understand what the MOCA does and doesn't tell you", Columbia University psychiatrist Dr. Paul Appelbaum told Newsweek.

"His health is excellent right now", Jackson said. Trump now weighs 239 pounds, which at 6-foot-3 puts him just under the technical definition of obese under the body mass index, or BMI. Called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, it is created to detect early signs of memory loss and other neurologic functions - and Trump had a ideal score.

Trump is the nation's oldest president and there here has been ongoing speculation as to whether the 71-year-old is mentally fit to be president due to his sometimes erratic behavior - concerns that were amplified after the publication of the explosive book Fire and Fury, which stated that the president's team constantly anxious about his mental stability.

Trump, who has gained three pounds since his physical in 2016, takes a drug to reduce his cholesterol, and Jackson said he may increase the dosage.

When a reporter asked him how Trump managed to be in such good health despite eating junk food and taking diet coke, the doctor attributed this to his genes. A doctor asks the patient to say as many words that begin with a single letter given by the doctor. "He has incredible genes I just assume", Jackson said. To some, that diagnosis is probably more believable than the real one.

During his portion of questioning at the hearing, Graham said in reference to the immigration fight, "This has turned into a "s-show" and we need to get back to being a great country".

According to Jackson, Trump told Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, "I do not want you pulling him off that stage".

"I would say he sleeps four to five hours a night, and he's probably been that way his whole life".
