Trump is fit for duty, but should lose weight: White House doctor

Donald Trump should be fit to serve his full term his doctor has said

Jackson said that Donald Trump asked him to conduct a cognitive test on him, even though it was not required by law.

Sen. Marco Rubio lamented the "hyperbolic" coverage of the Trump administration by many in the mainstream media, specifically pointing to claims - including by Dr. Sanjay Gupta - that the president has heart disease.

Bryant's Sanders jumped in after Bennett's Jackson ended explaining the results by saying, "The President has passed every exam we gave him" including "the physical exam, mental exam, the Tide Pod challenge". The first year of his presidency has seen many ridiculous moments that led many to believe that the Republican billionaire was 'mentally unfit to lead'. According to Trump's charts, he has a BMI of 29.9, which places him on the verge of obesity, defined as a BMI of 30 or greater. The doctor said he would also design a daily exercise program for Trump.

White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said Dr Jackson is the physician from the medical team that Trump spends the most time with.

Additionally, "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn took a page out of Trump's birther playbook and made an offer to donate to charity if the president is willing to offer proof of his pounds in public. Early signs of dementia could be overlooked by the test and at least one psychiatrist, Dr. Brandy Lee, is calling for a full neuropsychiatric evaluation for the president.

Turkey's Erdogan vows to press offensive on US-backed Kurds in Syria
Washington stated, however, that it recognized Turkey's right to carry out legal activities in order to ensure its security. Turkish officials say dozens of people were hurt by a rockets fired from inside Syria into two Turkish border towns.

Mimicking the "birther" conspiracy that Trump perpetuated - which questioned whether former president Barack Obama was born outside the United States thereby making him ineligible for office - the "girther" conspiracy quickly took hold.

Dr Jackson said the firebrand Republican, who weighs 17 stone, needs to lose 10 to 15 pounds over the next year and prescribed a diet low in fat and carbs as well as exercise.

Alzheimer's patients often have trouble drawing or naming objects, and the test can quickly indicate problems with short-term memory. And I said, "I can go much longer than this if you want me to'". None of the questions are hard for someone who does not suffer from cognitive impairment, but "the test is very sensitive to early stages of these conditions", says Dr. Ziad Nasreddine, who developed the assessment in 1996. "And if the number gets up over 100, that is concerning to a lot of doctors".

According to him, it is evident that the President did not suffer from mental issues that could prevent him from functioning in office and can serve out two terms of eight years.

"He did. He had a - so technically, he has nonclinical atherosclerotic coronary - coronary atherosclerosis", Jackson said. "I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius... and a very stable genius at that!"
