Doctor: Trump 'fit for office,' could improve diet, exercise

Doctor: Trump 'fit for office,' could improve diet, exercise

The White House doctor's assertion that President Trump is in "excellent health" has raised the eyebrows of many who remain skeptical of the medical assessment.

"When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn - this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive", Gupta said.

Trump's physician performed the yearly physical Friday at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.

Jackson also said he administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) and Trump received a score of 30 out of 30.

This exam is conducted in older patients for cognitive disorders like Alzheimer disease. Those tests had shown "he has absolutely no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever".

"I've got to know him pretty well".

'He has incredibly good genes, ' Jackson also said. Trump responded to the criticism by calling himself a "very stable genius".

Jackson said he increased Trump's dose of a medicine to control cholesterol, AstraZeneca PLC's Crestor, and he said Trump takes daily aspirin, a multivitamin and hair-loss drug Propecia.

Palestinian leaders urge PLO to droop recognition of Israel
Thus, one of the core demands of the Palestinians since the dawn of the peace process, a capital in Jerusalem, may be evaporating. Instead of continuing the failed policies of previous presidents, Trump has made a decision to try a more stringent approach.

The one issue that the 6-foot-3 president need to work on was his weight which, at 239 pounds, was three pounds heavier than he was in September 2016. "10 to 15 pounds".

Specifically, God made him "borderline obese".

Jackson said, Trump "is more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part but we're going to do both. You can make cardiac calculations, and you can see what his risk of having a cardiac or a cerebrovascular event might be", he said.

Apart from this, Trump has no problems in vision, head, ears, nose, and throat.

During the presidential campaign, Trump's personal doctor, Dr. Harold Bornstein, proclaimed: "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

Trump was 70 when he took office on January 20, 2017, making him the oldest person ever elected to the presidency.

As the fallout continues over USA president Donald Trump's use of a vulgar term to describe African countries during immigration talks, aides to the president are locked in an internal debate over which version of the word the president used. "I don't want to spend the time". The doctor said that he did not ask the president about his habits specifically, but guessed that he sleeps "four to five hours per night". "That's probably one of the reasons why he's been successful", the doctor said.
