Trump's doctor says he 'has absolutely no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever'

Patty Aguilar | 17 January, 2018, 01:33

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Jackson listed a variety of tests that indicate "the president's overall health is excellent".

At a press conference on Tuesday, White House doctor Ronny Jackson said he did not measure a key indicator of Trump's physical fitness: his waist circumference.

Dr Jackson said Mr Trump is in excellent health and has "incredible genes". "There are many good things that came from his exam, I think he had great findings across the board".

Jackson's stellar review of President Trump is likely to take his critics - who have been claiming he is mentally unfit for office - by surprise, particularly as they have pointed to signs of dementia, Alzheimers and other cognitive deterioration.

"He falls into a category that portends years of event-free living", Jackson said.

"He has absolutely no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever", he said.

"I've found no reason whatsoever to think that the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought process", he said.

Democrat Phil Murphy takes oath as New Jersey governor
The wealthy former Obama administration diplomat and businessman is to take the oath of office Tuesday at a ceremony in Trenton. Murphy said he would resist every move from Trump and what he called "a misguided Republican Congress".

As a veteran, I find this an interesting slant, since his grandfather and father never wore the uniform of this country, and Mr. Trump himself got five deferments. "He says what he wants to say and speaks his mind".

An incident involving Trump urgently needing a glass of water and another one in which he slurred his speech are nothing to be alarmed by.

Jackson said Trump scored a 30 out of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment test, which is not a psychological evaluation but does test for the early signs of disorders such as Alzheimer's. The doctor said that he did not ask the president about his habits specifically, but guessed that he sleeps "four to five hours per night".

He said prior to the December 7 incident, he gave Trump Sudafed, which might have "inadvertently dried up his secretions".

Trump did not undergo a psychiatric exam, but he did undergo a cognitive screening test. "It is also not considered routine", said former ABC News correspondent Ann Compton, who covered every White House from President Gerald Ford through President Barack Obama.

Jackson says that based on the clinical information he has on Trump and his year of observing the president, "I feel very confident that he has a very strong and a very probable possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues".

Expected to attend: senior White House officials, such as Ivanka Trump, the President's daughter and senior adviser, communications director Hope Hicks, press secretary Sarah Sanders and counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway as well as Cabinet members Secretary of Department of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao.
