And he scored 30 over 30 in this test, Jackson said. The examination at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre lasted several hours and was likely to measure things like Trump's blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, heart rate and weight. He has a "reasonable goal" of losing 10 to 15 pounds during the course of the year through exercise, said Jackson.
White House, Presidential physician Ronny Jackson answers question about U.S. President Donald Trump's health after the president's annual physical during the daily briefing at the White House in Washington, DC, U.S., January 16, 2018. "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 Trump's health report.
Most of the comparisons being made are professional athletes, so it stands to reason that Trump could in fact weight 239 pounds but be made up of considerably more fat than those he's being placed next to, who are made up of more muscle (which is denser than fat).
Trump said he was not following any special diet or exercise regimen for the campaign.
Following the president's tweet claiming he has a bigger nuclear button than North Korea Kim Jong Un, many critics began openly questioning his mental status.
'I actually do not know that sir, ' Nielsen responded, a comment that earned her a dressing-down from Sen. I told the President that if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old. "We've gone completely to the president's position on his request to Congress when it comes to the issue of what they call chain migration, and we call family unification".
A book published earlier this month, "Fire and Fury" by Michael Wolff, asserted that even Trump's own advisers and associates questioned his fitness for office.
He said Trump will need to take action to prevent a major health problem.
Jackson said, "Some people exercise, some people don't". Jackson said Trump shows no sign of cognitive impairment.
"When I compare him to other males who are 71 and white, only 46% of others have a better score than him".
The fast-food-loving Mr Trump praised Dr Jackson, but seemed wary of the not-so-subtle suggestion to use the White House's exercise facilities.
