Trump's doctor says president 'healthy,' has no cognitive issues

When the senators explained their stance to Trump, the president reportedly reacted by saying "Why do we want all these people from "s***hole countries" coming here?" referring to El Salvador, Haiti and African countries. He predicts Trump will remain healthy for the duration of his presidency despite limited exercise and a diet heavy on fast food.

In the wake of the 'Fire and Fury' book revelations which cast doubt on his fitness for office, the President took the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA) as part of a physical exam that found he was in "excellent" health with no evidence of mental decline.

The doctor also said Trump showed "excellent cardiac results. from a stress test" performed on the president last week.

But the physician said the cognitive test had raised no concerns. And, on a day-to-day basis it has been my experience that the president - is very sharp, he is very articulate when he speaks to me.

But Ben Marter, a spokesman for Durbin, said on Friday that following an initial telephone conversation with Trump about the deal, the senator had been "encouraged" by Trump's reaction and had expected further progress on the legislation at a White House meeting that day.

"Had the other side gotten in, the market would have gone down 50% from where it was", Trump said.

"But I don't think good genetics trumps - I mean beats - bad lifestyle".

Dr Jackson's highly-anticipated report came after the United States leader carried out a physical examination last Friday.

President Donald Trump's doctor says he's confident that Trump has a "very strong and a very probable possibility" of completing his presidency "with no medical issues".

"Based on his cardiac assessment, hands down, there is no question he is in the excellent range", Trump added. Jackson says Trump's heart exam was normal, with regular rhythm and no abnormal sounds. Any score above 100 is at high risk of a heart attack or heart disease within 3-5 years.

"The president asked me to do it", Jackson said.

A bipartisan group of U.S. senators will reveal on Wednesday an immigration bill that was agreed to by Democrats and Republicans, despite the fact that President Donald Trump rejected it.

A clean bill of health from the White House physician is just what the doctor ordered. He is 71 years old and weighs 239 pounds.

Trump's blood pressure was 122 over 74, and his total cholesterol was 223, which is higher than recommended.

As with his own patient, Pappas said he would encourage lower Trump to eat lower carbohydrate diet with more healthy fats.

On Tuesday night, Gunn offered $100,000 to Trump's favorite charity if he would "step on an accurate scale with an impartial medical professional" agreed upon by both Gunn and Trump.

"All clinical data indicates that the president is now very healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency. the president's overall health is excellent", said Navy Rear Adm Dr. Ronny Jackson, who shared the results of Trumps first physical.
