Accuracy of Donald Trump's medical report and height questioned

President Donald Trump congratulates Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell of Ky. while House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis. watches to acknowledge the final passage of tax overhaul legislation by Congress at the White House in Washington Wednesday Dec. 2

The top Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives said President Donald Trump does support a bill the House is set to vote on Thursday to provide a short-term extension of government funding. True to form, Trump is now commenting on the matter, telling reporters that not only is he healthy, but he also exercises "more than people think".

Trump's physician, Navy doctor Ronny Jackson, administered a medical checkup on January 12.

Dr Jackson reported that the 6ft 3in president weighed in at 239lb, 3lb heavier than he was in September 2016. Trump has no heart disease.

Navy doctor Ronny Jackson, who administered Trump's first presidential physical last week, said Trump received a ideal score on a test created to detect early signs of memory loss and other mild cognitive impairment.

Boil water advisory lifted for East bank of Orleans
Hotels and high rise buildings have had to "made adjustments" in response to the drop in water pressure. Officials are urging residents to avoid any no necessary water use until Sunday.

Trump's cognitive assessment was conducted what was supposed to be a purely physical examination of the president's health.

Jackson said, "Some people exercise, some people don't". A BMI of 30 and over is considered obese.

Dr. Jackson would seem to be open to that part of the plan, given his press briefing remarks this week that he's arranging a nutrition specialist to speak with the White House chefs "to go over the preparation of the president's food just to make sure that we're cutting the calories and the fats and the carbohydrates as much as we possibly can and still making good meals for him". He also takes a low-dose aspirin for heart health. "I don't have those problems", Mr Trump said. But it's hard to take his assertions about Trump at face value.

"It's not a diagnostic test, but it's pretty sensitive in picking up subtle changes in cognition", things involving memory, attention and language but not mental health issues, said Dr. Ranit Mishori, professor of family medicine at Georgetown University, who performs these types of routine physicals. "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'".
