Donald Trump's First Formal Medical Exam as President Finds Him Almost Obese

"I found no evidence that the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought process", Jackson told reporters during Tuesday's White House briefing.

"The president does take Ambien [a sleep aid]. on overseas travel", Jackson said. But the president requested he be tested anyway. "His cardiac health is excellent".

Identifying animals and reciting a list of words are among the type of challenges contained in the cognitive fitness test taken by USA president Donald Trump.

The cognitive test taken by Donald Trump last week is not a comprehensive psychological evaluation, its creator has said.

The test was developed as a simple screening tool for mild cognitive impairment-a condition that may or may not lead to dementia.

Jackson said he will recommend a low-impact exercise routine like a stationary bike for him.

The tasks include drawing a line between a number and a letter in ascending order.

Bringing it back to the president's mental health and the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, however, one can't ignore what other media outlets have pointed out: the mental health screening test used on the president was designed by an immigrant, a group of people Trump is not too fond of. It also tests people's ability to pay attention and think abstractly, which involves finding a link between words.

Oklahoma adds Georgia assistant Shane Beamer to staff
Before his time with the Bulldogs, Beamer coached at Virginia Tech under his dad and legendary coach Frank Beamer . The team has yet to fill the 10th assistant coaching spot that the NCAA began allowing earlier this month.

This test is then repeated with numbers, with a series of three numbers to be recited backwards.

Kanfer got 27 out of 30 answers correct which, according to the doctor, is not concerning.

Sentence repetition is the next skill tested. Sentences the president would have been asked to repeat are mildly complex, for example: "The cat always hid under the couch when dogs were in the room".

Jackson said Trump's heart exam was normal, with regular rhythm and no abnormal sounds. The president did better than that.

The President has drawn sharp criticism since he was reported to have called African countries "shitholes" while discussing immigration with lawmakers Thursday. "He is fit for duty".

Ronny Johnson spent almost an hour answering questions about President Trump's health after conducting a physical at Walter Reed Medical Center last week. "You know sometimes he says the things, you know, which are silly, or he doesn't really mean them or something like that, but he's definitely - they're not not racist I'm sure of that".

The president underwent a physical exam Friday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. It has never been done on any other president he has tended to over the years, Jackson said. He told reporters in IL, "I am stunned that this is their defense".
