President Trump asked doctor for cognitive test

A small group of Republicans and Democrats was in the closed-door meeting on Thursday at the White House, including Durbin and South Carolina Republican Sen.

Shortly before taking office previous year, Trump said he would hand off control of his global business empire to his sons Donald Jr and Eric, and move his assets into a trust to help ensure that he would not consciously take actions as president that would benefit him personally.

President Donald Trump's physician fielded questions from reporters on Trump's recent physical at the White House news briefing Tuesday.

The 30-point test is used to quickly detect "mild cognitive dysfunction" and according to Dr Jackson rules out "the need to do any other cognitive assessment". Some of the assessments include identifying animals by pictures, drawing a clock with the hands at a certain time and repeating phrases such as "the cat always hid under the couch when the dogs were in the room". A book published this month, "Fire and Fury" by Michael Wolff, asserted that even Mr. Trump's own advisers and associates questioned the president's fitness for office. Jackson said he'd be arranging to have a dietitian consult with the White House chef to cut calories and would be recommending a low-impact, aerobic exercise program for Trump, with the aim of shedding 10 to 15 pounds this year.

But he says the president asked for it.

"All data indicates the president is healthy and will remain so for the duration of his presidency", Jackson said. "I never thought I'd say that, but I do like him a lot".

So who is Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson - the doctor serving the executive branch? "Some people have just great genes".

"A president is a very special case and each president has an obligation to decide for himself what should be made public", Compton said, "and what conditions there may be that could affect or limit the way the president does his job". "Especially since it's on my watch, I feel very proud of that".

The president's mental acuity has been hotly debated in the United States, with critics regularly raising the spectre of invoking the 25th Amendment, which allows for the removal of a sitting president if he can be proven to be unfit for office.

The official said that although this might enrage Washington, staffers predicted the comment would resonate with Trump's base, similarly to how Trump's attacks on NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem did.

The presidents remarks didn't go over so well on social media. Graham has yet to confirm or deny whether the president use the term "shithole countries", but reportedly told colleagues the reports about the comments are accurate. However, Trump, according to Jackson, specifically asked to be screened for impairments such as Alzheimer's. He does however take daily medication, Propecia, for hair loss, a multivitamin and also medication for rosacea, which causes red skin.
