President is overweight and doesn't exercise like most Americans Trump's Doctor Dismisses Questions About Mental Stability, Stresses 'Excellent' Health

U.S. President Donald Trump passed a test for signs of dementia and is in overall excellent health, but needs to shed weight by cutting calories, fats and carbohydrates and starting a daily exercise routine, the White House physician said on Tuesday.

The test, created in 1996 by neurologist Ziad Nasreddine in Montreal, isn't a psychiatric exam, Dr. Jackson acknowledged, and it isn't meant to screen for mental health issues beyond cognitive troubles. The 71-year-old president is known to eat junk food, and to avoid exercise beyond golf.

"Standing at 75 inches tall, or 6' 2.5", and weighing in at 239 pounds, Trump's weight places him at a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30.3, or, if his height is rounded up to 6' 3", 29.9.

Before the medical exam, the White House had said that tests for mental acuity would not be included.

Jackson, a longtime presidential physician, also described Trump as "very sharp" and told reporters the president was "absolutely. fit for duty", not just for the remainder of this term, but for another four years if he's re-elected.

"He said, 'I want you to get out there and I want you to talk to them and I want you to answer every single question they have, '" Jackson said of Trump.

Nasreddine says he designed it as a way to quickly assess, within 10 or 12 minutes, whether someone has suffered light cognitive impairment or the onset of Alzheimer's disease; he says it's now been used in 200 countries in 60 languages. "Thank you very much everybody", Trump responded as Acosta continued to bark questions.

When pressed about Trump's infamous Twitter habits, Jackson said he couldn't explain that behavior.

Mr Trump's cholesterol reading from Friday's exam was borderline high even though he takes a low dose of the statin drug Crestor. Trump received deferments from serving in the Vietnam War, including one that cited bone spurs in his heels in 1968.

Dr. Ronny Jackson provided detailed information on Trump's annual physical during a White House press briefing today.

Meanwhile, CNN has been mocked for a variety of anti-Trump segments, such as focusing on the president's soda intake amid unfolding breaking news related to a terror attack in New York City.

"He has incredible genes and that's the way God made him".

The topic of Trump's mental stability returned to headlines after publication of the book "Fire and Fury", in which author Michael Wolff reported that Trump's inner circle had concerns about his mental stability. "And let me also say, is that their defense, that S-House is acceptable, S-Hole he would never say?"

"He has a very unique ability to get up in the morning and reset", Jackson said, adding that if he himself were in the president's shoes, he'd imagine each day would build on the last in terms of stress levels.

Trump's 20/30 vision is very good for his age, according to Jackson.
