Trump aces mental aptitude test designed by Canadian immigrant

"I think he will remain fit for duty for this term and for the remainder of his next term.", Dr Jackson said, pointing to his "excellent" heart health.

The White House physician pronounced Donald Trump to be in "excellent health" after Trump had his first medical exam as US president on Friday, capping off a week in which his mental fitness for the job has come under intense scrutiny.

Ex-Obama administration officials stood up for White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson as he took heat over the results of President Donald Trump's physical.

He examined the Mr. Trump for three hours last Friday, according to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, marking his first medical check-up since becoming president.

Trump's health information was published on Tuesday in the "President's Periodic Physical Exam", his first physical since taking office.

The doctor, who took questions on the president's health for almost an hour, said that he was not told to withhold any information regarding Trump's results.

The White House doctor explained the reason a cognitive assessment was done on the USA president is because Trump requested such test be done.

Trump's doctor earlier revealed how the president scored a flawless 30 on the test, where anything above 26 is considered "normal" and anything below is a cause for concern.

Past presidents have not been tested for mental acuity while in office, including Ronald Reagan, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, an incurable, degenerative brain condition, five years after leaving the White House in 1989.

"Tabloid psychiatry" is how Jackson described outside diagnoses of the president's mental health by those who haven't examined him.

'If the president wants to get one done next year, then we'll do another one next year, ' he said.

"I have no concerns about his cognitive ability", Dr. Ronny Jackson told reporters on Tuesday.

Jackson said a recent incident in which Trump slurred some words while making public remarks may have been the result of Sudafed that the doctor gave the president the previous day.

"If he had some type of mental, cognitive issue ... this test is sensitive enough". He has a "reasonable goal" of losing 10 to 15 pounds during the course of the year through exercise, said Jackson.

When asked if he believed the President was "fit for duty", Jackson said: "Absolutely, he's fit for duty".

Mr Trump's good health could also be down to his genes, Dr Jackson suggested.

"We talked about diet and exercise a lot, he's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part, but we will do both", Jackson said.

As for medicines, Trump now has prescriptions for Crestor, for lowering cholesterol; Aspirin; Propecia, for hair loss; Soolantra Cream for rosacea; and a multivitamin.
