He says it has now been used in 200 countries, in 60 languages, and has been deployed in one developing country to demonstrate its leader was no longer fit to govern. "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.

Jackson said between diet and exercise, the president was more keen on the dieting, "but we're going to be doing both".

It was February, 16, 2017, less than a month into the presidency of Donald Trump.

If you haven't seen the results of the Trump physical, we discuss it here, but what we're told about his mental fitness is that he scored a 30 out of 30 on a cognition test that many people have never heard of: the Montreal Cognitive Assessment.

The physician's press briefing came after Trump underwent his first physical examination as president on Friday at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Bethesda, Maryland.

Jackson reports that the 6-foot-3 president weighed in at 239 pounds - three pounds heavier than he was in September 2016.

Cognitive assessments aren't routine in standard physicals, though they recently became covered in Medicare's annual wellness visits for seniors. He said he talks to Trump daily, and didn't feel he even needed the test.

Trump also has no heart disease and no family history of it. He passed a battery of heart exams, including a stress test that Jackson said showed an above-average exercise capacity for a man of his age, despite some calcium buildup in his arteries. Topol said. "I don't care what his height is. We talked about diet and exercise a lot", Jackson said. White House leaks about Trump's odd verbal repetitions and staff accounts included in "Fire and Fury" have Americans, from average middle-class voters to trained psychologists, concerned about Trump's mental fitness for office. Do you measure up to his "stable genius" credentials? Senator Bob Corker told reporters at the Capitol in October that he questioned Trump's "leadership, and just his stability, and the lack of desire to be competent on issues and understand". To prove his point, Trump noted how Apple announced on Wednesday that it would pay $38 billion in taxes on cash it has been keeping overseas and pledged to create 20,000 jobs and invest $30 billion in U.S. facilities over the next five years.

Discussing the now infamous conversation, Macron said: "It's not a word you can use", adding, "we have to respect all the countries".

The fictional presser began with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders recognizing the Women's March, which she said was organized "to celebrate the president's first kick-ass year in office".

Jackson backed that up, saying some medication may have also played a part. As with his own patient, Pappas said he would encourage lower Trump to eat lower carbohydrate diet with more healthy fats.

Under federal medical privacy laws, Jackson can not release any information about Trump's health without his permission.
