HEALTHCARE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump is in excellent health and scored a perfect result on a cognitive assessment, the White House physician said Tuesday [1-16-18] in revealing results from a recent examination.
Based on the results, the 71-year-old president is ‘very healthy and will remain so for the duration of his presidency,’ said Ronny Jackson, who previously served as a physician to Barack Obama when he was president.
Dr. Jackson said he encouraged Mr. Trump to lose weight by exercising and modifying his diet. The president, who is 6 feet 3 inches tall, weighs 239 pounds, which means he is overweight according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calculator of Body Mass Index.
Mr. Trump had his first annual routine physical as president on Friday at Walter Reed Medical Center, and it took around four hours, Dr. Jackson told reporters. Dr. Jackson also said Mr. Trump had strong cardiac health, which he attributed to his avoiding alcohol and tobacco as well as ‘incredible genes,’ and that a battery of tests had yielded normal results…
He said that there was no clinical guideline suggesting he should administer an extensive cognitive assessment to a patient like Mr. Trump, but that he did so anyway, ‘because the president asked me to do it.’ The test, the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, yielded a perfect score of 30 out of 30, the physician said.”
