The President said he would like to lose some, according to Jackson.

"It's weird that people in the room don't remember Trump using that word when Trump himself was calling friends to brag about it afterwards", tweeted the columnist.

The doctor speculated that Trump requested the exam in an attempt to beat back the narrative of the past few weeks that he is mentally unfit for office.

"All clinical data indicates that the president is now very healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency", Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson, the official Physician to the President, said during the news briefing.

The doctor said he's found "no reason whatsoever" to think the president has any issues with his thought process.

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.

Jackson, a Navy rear admiral, directs the White House medical unit and has worked as a White House physician since 2006.

Trump also received a flawless score (30/30) on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) - a standard, one-page test created to test a person's thinking and memory skills for signs of dementia, Jackson said.

The MoCA was picked because it was a more in-depth screening of cognitive ability, Jackson explained. Although it was not part of the official medical records that were released yesterday, after further questioning, Jackson also revealed that Trump underwent a coronary calcium CT scan as part of his routine physical exam.

David Perdue is increasing in the wake of his insistence that President Donald Trump's alleged racially offensive remarks at an immigration meeting last Thursday did not happen.

But there's one form of physical activity with which Trump is closely associated: golf. In a remarkable show of transparency for an administration known for its secret-keeping, Jackson stood at the White House podium for an hour Tuesday answering questions about the President's health.

"I want them to come in from everywhere - everywhere", Trump told reporters yesterday in a brief response to a question surrounding the controversy about his recent statement in which he allegedly said he wants more people to come from Norway.

Trump took office at age 70, making him the oldest incoming USA president.

During the presidential campaign, Trump's long-time personal physician, Harold Bornstein, had declared that Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

This story was first published on CNN.com, "White House doctor: "No concerns" about Trump's cognitive ability".

"Along with listing Trump's vitals, including his height (6'3"), weight (239 lbs) and blood pressure (122/74).

Like most men of his age, President Donald Trump has a common form of heart disease, relatively easy to address if he increases the dose of his cholesterol-lowering medication and makes necessary lifestyle changes.

The medicinal checkup additionally came in the midst of reestablished worries about Trump's mental wellbeing.
