Donald Trump in 'excellent' physical and mental health, White House doctor finds

Jackson told reporters that he recommends Trump lose 10-to-15 pounds-a goal he said could be achieved with a lower intake of fat and carbohydrates.

President Donald Trump tweets that Sen.

Some of Trump's health numbers from the physical were troubling, notably his status as being overweight for his height and his elevated cholesterol numbers. And he doesn't like to exercise.

White House physician Ronny Jackson told reporters on Tuesday that he had screened Trump for neurological impairments at the President's asking during a yearly medical exam last week, and that Trump had scored 30 out of 30 on the cognitive test. "I told him what I thought, and that's more important to me than anything else". "I remember him asking is there any way to authorize the full down payment of the wall such that we could have assurances that we could in fact build it". "Why don't we get more people from Norway?'" Durbin said.

When Trump and his allies say they want to end "chain migration" - in which family members sponsor other family members for entry - they mean they want to halt the influx of immigrants from Mexico and other Latin American countries. They also are considering attaching legislation that would reauthorize the Children's Health Insurance Program, the person said. I've seen people ... then they get their new knees when they're 55 years old and they get their new hips and they do all those things. "I don't have those problems". "We have a country that's on the right track", the president said. "Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems". He exerts himself fully by standing in front of an audience for an hour, as he just did.

"This agenda-driven report is clearly created to support the Trump administration's anti-immigrant and Islamophobic policies", the Council on American-Islamic Relations said.

After college, after Trump mostly gave up his personal athletic interests, he came to view time spent playing sports as time wasted.

He said that while Trump "doesnt have a daily exercise regiment", Trump "has a lot of energy, a lot of stamina". So he didn't work out. You could be the pope and criticize him - it doesn't matter, he'll go after the pope. Therefore, exercising is bad.


Asked how Trump could stay healthy on a diet that includes McDonald's and Diet Cokes, Jackson said: "It's called genetics - I don't know".

But you don't just "move forward" after the president describes African countries as "s--holes" and proposes more white immigration. Sen. If Trump blew up a DACA deal over his "shithole countries" remarks, it's because he revealed his months of (relatively) specific criticism of parts of the U.S. immigration system to be mere pretense for blunt racism, and thus made a deal impossible.

Despite continued efforts by lawmakers seeking a deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, including the introduction of a new bipartisan bill, talks seemed to return to the drawing board in the wake of the President's crude dismissal of the Senate "Gang of Six" bipartisan proposal.

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

"I was on a treadmill for the first time actually in quite a while, and it was at a very steep angle, and I was there for a very long time", he recounted.

"I'm really thrilled, and happy they made a decision to use it over other tests".

Because, of course he can.
