WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump had a normal score on a cognitive exam and is in excellent health, although he could benefit from a lower-fat diet and more exercise, the White House physician said on Tuesday.

 

"In summary, the president's overall health is excellent," Dr. Ronny Jackson told reporters. "He continues to enjoy the significant long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol."

 

The examination took place on Friday toward the end of a week in which Trump's mental fitness for the job had come under intense scrutiny after a controversial book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," portrayed him as a childlike and mercurial.

 

Jackson said Trump had performed well on a cognitive assessment, which the president had requested.

 

"The president is mentally very sharp, very intact. ... He is fit for duty," Jackson said. "I think he will remain fit for duty for the remainder of this term and even for the remainder of another (four-year) term if he's elected."

The mention by the doctor about his fitness seven years into the future is extremely suspicious and indicative of bias. A typical doctor wouldn't say such a thing. 

Typical doctor?

He is serving in the Navy... as a Rear Admiral, nothing to do with a Typical doctor!

I noticed on Fox they're squawking about a press question about his WAIST SIZE. I don't think that was released. Actually WAIST SIZE is very relevant to health as height/weight from BMI doesn't tell us anything about where the fat is. Fat concentrated around the waist is particularly troublesome.

You could have mental issues and still be in perfectly good health .... just saying.

The doctor also told Trump to lose weight, he is 1lb shy of being obese.

A cheeseburger away! I think they're fudging the BMI to avoid that label. Just look at him. He's obese.

... soon after the wise Doctor checked himself into the nearest lunatic asylum.
