Dr. Sanjay Gupta says Trump has heart disease, contradicting White House physician

President Donald Trump

Jackson said that he has a goal for the president of losing 10-15 pounds through a regimen of diet and exercise, telling reporters, "He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part, but we're going to do both".

A weekly recap of the top political stories from The Globe, sent right to your email.

Trump is considered overweight and borderline obese at 6 feet 3 inches (1.9 metres) tall and 239 pounds (108kg).

President Donald Trump's doctor said Tuesday he's confident that Mr. Trump has a "very strong and a very probable possibility" of completing his presidency "with no medical issues".

Jackson said with mostly normal results on a battery of tests and examinations "excellent", Trump, 71, has remarkably good cardiac health, probably because he does not smoke or drink alcohol.

Regarding his physical health, he said he had dieted successfully before.

"We have conversations about many things most every day", the doctor said.

Jackson said he would increase that dose in an effort to get Trump's bad cholesterol, or LDL level, below 120; it now is 143. But a new report details how his hotels and golf courses have benefitted by millions of dollars from organizations and rich people trying to curry favor with him.

The White House has released the summary of Donald Trump's physical exam, following concerns raised over the president's cognitive abilities by a tell-all book that suggested his aides were concerned about his mental state.

Alexis Sanchez scores two great goals as youngster in Chile
Mkhitaryan had an 18-month spell at Old Trafford in which he made 39 league appearances but scored only five goals. He creates chances, he defends well , he can absorb distances and he's very committed as well.

President Donald Trump was given - and received a ideal score - on a standard cognitive test administered during a routine physical, according to his White House doctor.

Jackson said Trump himself had requested to sit the test after questions about his mental health.

"I think he will remain fit for duty for the remainder of this term, and even for the remainder of another term, if he is elected", Jackson said.

"I would say he sleeps four to five hours a night, and he's probably been that way his whole life".

If you wonder just what's involved in the test, here's the opportunity to take the same one the President took.

Asked whether Trump has heart disease, Jackson said he did not.

In fairness, those athletes have much more weight in sculpted muscle than Trump, whose body mass is distributed just a bit differently (also in fairness: this out-of-shape author is no one to talk).

"He has a lot of energy, a lot of energy and a lot of stamina", Jackson said. The President said he would like to lose some, according to Jackson.

Mimicking the Trump-supported "birther" movement, which promoted false assertions that Barack Obama was born overseas and so ineligible to be America's 44th president, conspiracy theorists have launched a "girther" movement, calling for a new weigh-in for the 45th incumbent.
