"That is completely contradicted".

Jackson said he would increase Trump's daily dose of Crestor, a cholesterol-lowering drug, and bring in a nutritionist to work with White House chefs.

She then turned her attentions to the USA government shutdown, saying that President Trump maintains that any deal must include a Mexico border wall, and that "it must be a solid physical wall with some parts see-through, some parts fenced and some parts empty spaces that operate on an honour system".

Trump has faced several questions about his mental fitness to be president. An exercise stress test using a treadmill showed "above average" capacity for his age. "It would pick up on it", Dr. Jackson said. No matter who the person is, for me it's an honour.

"It was interesting when I spoke to Dr. Jackson". "Technically, he has nonclinical coronary atherosclerosis", Jackson told reporters.

Trump is the first president to take the cognitive test, which was prompted by the media's constant rumor-mongering that he's not mentally fit to be president.

"Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months", real-life Trump tweeted.

He also has no heart disease and no family history of it.

Fresh off a White House doctor declaring his health excellent, President Donald Trump swiped at his predecessors on North Korea, while saying he "scored the highest on tests".

Presidents aren't required to get a checkup, but modern presidents do so regularly and release a doctor's report on the findings. Without those changes, the President has a moderate risk of having a heart attack in the next three to five years, according to the Mayo Clinic.


"Thank you for all for being here", Bryant's Sanders says to the reporters.

But hundreds of people tweeting with the #GirtherMovement hashtag are accusing the U.S. president, 71, of lying about his weight.

"Here the issue is, does he have abdominal obesity?" "I mean, I'm strong, physically", he said. All you have to do is look at his abdomen.

According to the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute and the CDC is teetering on the edge of obesity at 29.9.

Trump's scheduled annual physical was Friday, a week after publication of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, in which author Michael Wolff portrayed the president as intellectually and emotionally unfit for the presidency.

And when asked about how the president has bragged about doing better on the test than past presidents, the doctor responds: "In fairness, no other president has been given this exam". She called Jackson "the only credible source when it comes to diagnosing any health concerns".

"This is the President's unbiased, 100% accurate health assessment".

Trump's physician - Navy doctor Ronny Jackson - says the president achieved a ideal score on the test, which was included in last Friday's medical checkup.

The Lebanese-Canadian neurologist learned from a reporter Tuesday afternoon that the White House had selected the Montreal Cognitive Assessment to test the president's faculties after days of speculation about his state.
