AFP'Very sharp... President Donald Trump this week

Navy doctor Ronny Jackson said at a press conference in the White House that Donald Trump received a flawless score on a test created to detect early signs of memory loss and other mild cognitive impairment.

Trump's annual physical - conducted by Jackson last Friday at Walter Reed - only seemed to affirm the President's exercise beliefs.

Trump described the book as "full of lies", and described himself as "a very stable genius".

It's worth noting Jackson was appointed as the president's physician by Obama, and began work at the White House in 2006 under the Bush administration. The 10-minute exam is created to detect mild cognitive impairment, such as dementia, generally in older patients.

Dr Jackson said: 'If he had some kind of mental cognitive issue he would not have got 30 out of 30 on the test.

"When I asked him specifically about that test, he did then concede that, in fact, the president does have heart disease".

CNN, a huge victor of President Trump's Fake News Awards, obviously never listened to the iconic Kenny Rogers song, "The Gambler", which says you have to quit when you're ahead (or, in CNN's case, when you're woefully behind). "It's called genetics. He has incredibly good genes and that's just the way God made him". Trump also takes Propecia for hair loss and aspirin daily, as well as Soolantra as needed for rosacea.

According to Jackson, Trump weighs 239 pounds and is 6 feet, 3 inches tall.

Questions mount over the United States president's mental fitness.

Mr Trump's exercise revolves around golf and he has a well-documented love of fast food.

A summary of President Donald Trump's health report was released by the White House, with not only his weight being doubted, but concerns raised over his cholesterol.

"We checked everything out and everything was normal", he said. Petersen said he could not comment specifically on the president's cognitive health.

Because of the Sudafed, Dr. Jackson said - as Sarah Huckabee Sanders has before - Trump's throat was "dried up".

Several cardiologists said the president's weight and diet were a serious problem that likely contributed to his high LDL level and increased his risk for heart problems. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.
