Here's the cognitive exam the US President scored top marks on

I remember a flustered White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer sticking his head into a Florida press room - during the visit of Chinese President Xi - telling reporters that upcoming remarks by White House officials would be on background (meaning: we can't say the names of the people who briefed us) and on camera, then changing his mind moments later, saying they wouldn't be, only to change his mind again.

"I'm telling you he did not use that word, George, and I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation", Perdue told moderator George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week". Social media users are now asking Trump to step on a scale.

The president has also noted that he sleeps only about 4 to 5 hours per night, and Jackson confirmed that.

Dr. Jackson was equally effusive in his praise at the White House lectern.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting", Trump tweeted Monday, using a nickname to needle the IL senator. At 6 feet, 3 inches tall, Trump had a body mass index, or BMI, that puts him in the "overweight" range, according to the National Institutes of Health's online BMI calculator.

Trump also will increase his daily dosage of Crestor, Jackson said, with a goal of getting his LDL cholesterol down to below a reading of 120.

"I know what was said, and I know what I said", Graham said. Also concerning are Trump's total cholesterol levels and his LDL ("bad" cholesterol), as both increased significantly over the previous year, despite being on a statin drug known as Crestor or Rosuvastatin. Trump has said that he has never smoked or imbibed alcohol, which Jackson said has contributed to the president's good health.

Asked about Trump's comments challenging his honesty, Durbin told reporters Tuesday: "I stand by every word I said about what was said".


"I can just say what was described in the meeting I had was identical to what was reported later in the news", Flake said.

President Donald Trump is in excellent physical health and also shows no signs of age-related cognitive decline, according to a detailed briefing Tuesday following his annual check-up. "At first he said he passed all the tests with flying colors", Gupta said.

Critics began openly questioning Trump's mental heath this month following a tweet in which he said he has a bigger nuclear button than North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, and the publication of Fire and Fury, a book about the White House, in which anonymous Trump acquaintances questioned the president's mental stability.

President Donald Trump has a "very strong and a very probable possibility" of completing his presidency "with no medical issues", his doctor has said. There are 18 Trump golf courses around the world, and he has played quite a bit during the first year of his presidency, though the exact number of times is unclear because the White House has declined to confirm it.

In terms of medications, he continues to take Propecia, for male hair loss, one for Rosacea and a multivitamin.

The President himself decided what to make public from his exam, in accordance with medical privacy rules.

On Twitter, Trump hit out at Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, who was present at last week's meeting and insisted the president used the slur repeatedly.

Dr Jackson revealed last week that the check-up at the Walter Reed military hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, had gone "exceptionally well", adding that he was "enthusiastic" about sharing further details.
