One year of Donald Trump: The administrative presidency on steroids

Doctor To Release Details Of President Donald Trump's Physical

Jackson accused doctors who have tried to diagnose Trump from afar of performing "tabloid psychiatry".

Side-by-side comparisons are popping up on social media where Trump is compared to athletes like Tim Tebow and Tom Brady, who are roughly the same height and weight as Trump is said to be.

Jackson's medical career began when he graduated from medical school at the University of Texas in 1995.

The president received a flawless score in the cognitive test and "he's fit for duty...will remain fit for duty for the remainder of this term and even for the remainder of another term, if he's elected", said presidential physician Ronny Jackson, a rear admiral in the United States navy, at a briefing Tuesday.

He said, "I get exercise".

Specifically, skeptics don't believe the president actually stands at 6-foot, 3-inches and weighs just 239 pounds. Jackson said he was considering an increase in Trump's dose of Crestor. Trump scored a ideal 30 of 30 in the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which is longer and more complex than others.

Asked about a much-discussed episode in which the President seemed to slur his words during a televised speech in December about West Asia, Mr. Jackson said it might had been caused by Sudafed, a medicine for nasal congestion.

Trump specifically asked to be screened for dementia, even though such a test is not recommended at his age, Jackson said.

Dogged by questions about his mental stability after a tell-all book - "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" - claims he's "an idiot surrounded by clowns", Trump boasted about passing a cognitive examination and then took at shot at his Oval Office predecessors for not handling the crisis with North Korea.

"As far as I know this is the first time this has happened", Jackson said, referring to a cognitive assessment being done on a president who is in office.

"As we have said before he often has calls to foreign leaders, Cabinet officials, lawmakers and senior staff during this time", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told CNN.

A score of 100 to 300 - moderate plaque deposition - is associated with a relatively high risk of heart attack or other heart disease over the next three to five years.

Not expected are any conclusions about Trump's mental acuity.

"So the president has heart disease", he added.

Some critics say that the rather short screening test doesn't provide a complete picture of a participants mental health.

"His adherence to a healthy diet and a consistent exercise program has resulted in an improved lean body mass and lower cholesterol level", Jackson wrote of Obama in 2016.
