Reporters Struggle to Take In Trump Health Report

According to two people briefed on the meeting, Mr Trump said: "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?".

"I have no reason to think whatsoever that the president has any issues with his thought process", the doctor said. There are 18 Trump golf courses around the world, and he has played quite a bit during the first year of his presidency, though the exact number of times is unclear because the White House has declined to confirm it.

Navy Dr. Ronny Jackson, who performed Trump's physical exam, said Tuesday that Trump is already on cholesterol-lowering medication, something Gupta said they'll likely increase. Based on the blood profile and other health parameters, Jackson said he has recommended diet and exercise plan for the president for weight loss.

During an appearance Tuesday in the White House briefing room, Jackson said he would be prescribing a higher dose of Crestor, the brand name for rosuvastatin, to help lower the president's LDL levels.

The standard version of the test is "pretty good" but "not definitive", Dr Ronald Petersen, an Alzheimer's disease expert at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, told Reuters.

A physical examination of the U.S. president has declared him to be in great physical shape.

Outside doctors - who have not directly examined Trump - questioned that conclusion, saying the combination of Trump's weight and the cardiac test results raised more concerns than Jackson's comments would reflect. "It's all about him", said Wolff.

Over to Senate as House passes stopgap measure
But they agreed to back the measure after Ryan promised to bring a separate bill to the floor to boost defense spending. Now Democrats are needed if it is to pass in the Senate - but they want illegal immigration and weak borders.

At 71 years old, President Trump stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 239 pounds. The examiner then will read a list of letters and every time they say the letter A, the patient will tap once.

Still, Jackson said that he spoke with the president about changing his diet and exercise patterns, since he's a pound away from being obese and admitted to not exercising.

Following reports that President Donald Trump is "overweight" and sedentary, the Internet started obsessing over it.

Several former members of Obama's White House staff echoed that praise of Jackson. "They were surprised. And they said, 'Well you can stop now, that's wonderful.' And I said, 'I can go much longer than this if you want me to'".

"It was interesting when I spoke to Dr. Jackson".

The military doctor said it was evidence that Trump does not suffer from mental issues that could prevent him from performing his duties as president.
