The Next Hurdle for a Healthy Trump? Getting Some Exercise

Barbara Perry, the director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia's Miller Center said, "There is a long history of the White House picking and choosing what to reveal about the commander in chief's health".

Jackson said he will discuss "some of the details" of the exam's results when he takes the unusual step of answering reporters questions directly at Tuesday's daily briefing.

"All clinical data indicates that the president is now very healthy, and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency. the presidents overall health is excellent", said Jackson.

"Absolutely, he [Trump] is fit for duty".

After the publication of Wolff's book, which claimed that some of Trump's aides considered him unfit for office, the president defended himself on Twitter as "a very stable genius".

Jackson said he didn't feel the test was necessary.

But the U.S. president performed "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening, which is not standard but was requested by Mr Trump.

In response to speculation that the president has mental health problems, Jackson said, "In my opinion, thats just tabloid psychiatry". The test instructions describe it as a rapid screening instrument to check for mild cognitive dysfunction that takes about 10 minutes to complete.

He thought this particular screening tool was "great" and "I wouldn't recommended doing anything beyond that", Jackson said.

Trump's only health concern, according to Jackson, is his weight of 239 pounds.

He said: "I will give 100 thousand dollars to Trump's favourite charity if he will step on an accurate scale with an impartial medical professional, okayed by both of us".

In answer to a reporter's question about the president's "mental fitness", Jackson stated that the president performed "exceedingly well" on his cognitive screening, achieving a ideal score.

Predictably, the results break down along partisan lines: 88 percent of Democrats say it's an important issue, compared to 54 percent of independents and just 19 percent of Republicans.

Speaking to news media Tuesday, Nasreddine stressed that while Trump's flawless score was generally good news with regard to the president's memory, it didn't offer anything near a complete psychological profile.

Some of Trump's health numbers from the physical were troubling, notably his status as being overweight for his height and his elevated cholesterol numbers.

In addition, there is a memory test that involves the doctor reading a list of five words at a rate of one per second and the patient is asked to remember as many words as they can in any order.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump had longtime physician Dr. Harold Bornstein release a letter in which he wrote that Trump "unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

While Trump is known to be fond of fast food and lack a consistent exercise routine, Obama was committed to a healthy lifestyle while in office, according to Jackson's assessment.

Jackson said he's going to have a nutrition specialist come meet with the White House chefs.
