How an immigrant to Canada helped Donald Trump prove his mental state

Trump's 'cognitive ability is normal'

Jackson said he hopes to bring down the LDL or "bad cholesterol" score with diet, exercise and statin medication.

When he was running for office, Trump released a glowing report from his personal physician in NY, who said Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

President Donald Trump requested he do something a little different for his annual exam: a cognitive assessment.

It emerged that as well as Crestor, Trump takes a low dose of aspirin, a cream for rosacea as well as a multivitamin.

Sanders called the Graham-Durbin immigration bill a "complete failure" in terms of meeting the criteria Trump had laid out, adding it would provide on about one-tenth of what DHS official said "they needed" for border security.

Trump said in the Reuters interview that he already gets exercise.

Jackson said the president's overall health "was excellent", helped in part because Trump does not drink or smoke.

At six feet, three inches tall, Trump had a body mass index (BMI) that puts him in the "overweight" range, according to the National Institutes of Health's online BMI calculator. According to the CDC, a BMI of over 30 indicates obesity.

Jackson did note that the president "would benefit" from a diet lower in fat and carbohydrates and also more exercise.

New Poll Shows 76% of Americans Want "Significant Restrictions" on Abortions
The bill is not expected to pass in the Senate, since it will require at least 60 votes. A majority of Americans continue to consider abortion "morally wrong" (56 percent).

Years after he claimed Barack Obama was lying about his USA citizenship, Donald Trump is now the subject of a conspiracy similar to the #Birther movement. Tests have shown he has high cholesterol and there's evidence of heart disease, but Jackson said tests show his heart is functioning well.

Jackson also praised Trump's "good genes", and said the president did "exceedingly well" on his cognitive test. He chose the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) - a widely validated tool that is commonly used to screen for cognitive dysfunction, such as that seen among dementia patients.

Trump's predecessors, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican George W. Bush, were fitness enthusiasts, but Trump has no daily workout routine.

"He's very sharp. He's very articulate when he speaks to me", said Jackson, patronising doctors who commented on Trump's health from afar for their "tabloid psychiatry". "I've found no reason whatsoever to think the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought process".

The results of Trump's recent physical examination were published this week, and many critics noticed a few red flags.

Some have even pointed out that Gupta asked Dr. Jackson directly if the president had heart disease at yesterday's briefing.

"I feel very confident that he has a very strong and a very probable possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues", announced Dr Ronny Jackson after carrying out the assessment and calling him 'fit for duty'.

The White House determines what data will be released from the exam. Trump is not compelled to release any information, and there is no template for the presidential exam. Jackson is expected to take questions about the results from reporters on Tuesday.
