Take the cognitive test that President Trump passed during his physical

Take the cognitive test that President Trump passed during his physical

Dr Jackson, who speaks with Mr Trump a few times a day and travels with him, said he did not think the USA president needed cognitive testing based on medical guidelines - but added the 30-question Montreal Cognitive Assessment at Mr Trump's request.

The piece characterized the lack of communication between President Trump and his predecessor as unusual.

Trump will be making some changes to his diet and exercise in an effort to lose weight. President Obama's strategy in the Mideast was created to help support local forces in Iraq and Syria with coalition air power and analysts say Trump's decision to give field commanders more decision-making power has helped increase the campaign's pace.

Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson was so effusive in extolling the totally incredible, surpassingly marvelous, superbly stupendous and extremely awesome health of the president that the doctor sounded nearly Trumpian. This is how bad the press is to get Trump; even physicians are cast aside, questioned as quacks if they say something positive about the president. Trump described the book as "full of lies", and described himself as "a very stable genius". "He has incredible genes".

It may only be an inch but it is the difference between an overweight BMI or an obese one of 30.6, according to the NHS. Jackson recommended that Trump, who weighs 239 pounds, lose 10-15 pounds through a combination of a healthier diet and exercise.

President Trump reportedly tried contacting Obama to thank him, but the outgoing commander-in-chief couldn't be reached as he traveled to Palm Springs. Here's how the two presidents' health stack up. Although it was not part of the official medical records that were released yesterday, after further questioning, Jackson also revealed that Trump underwent a coronary calcium CT scan as part of his routine physical exam.

The news outlet published an article Thursday that noted President Trump and former president Barack Obama haven't directly spoken in a year.

Ban on anti-Donald Trump protest at snowy Davos branded 'scandalous'
Swiss police are deploying more than 4,300 troops in the region for security, which officials say is on a par with previous years. Switzerland's Young Socialists party was revving up for the Tuesday protest in Zurich. "They need stronger spines".

Jackson gave details on Tuesday following Trump's test at the Walter Reed military hospital. Also concerning are Trump's total cholesterol levels and his LDL ("bad" cholesterol), as both increased significantly over the previous year, despite being on a statin drug known as Crestor or Rosuvastatin.

Trump's level of LDL cholesterol is 143 milligrams per deciliter, which is higher than Obama's despite the fact that Trump takes a statin medication to lower his cholesterol.

Dr Jackson said he would increase Mr Trump's daily dose of Crestor and bring in a nutritionist to work with White House chefs.

"President Obama met with Donald once, prior to Donald taking office".

He said that while Trump "doesnt have a daily exercise regiment", Trump "has a lot of energy, a lot of stamina". No doubt Mr Trump will provide us with many more opportunities for unsettling cover images over the next three years-at the very least.

Dr Jackson said: "He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part, but we're going to do both".
