Trump in 'excellent health,' doctor says after medical exam

Verma Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Secretary Tom Price U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services and Vice President Mike Pence

Jackson says he looks forward to providing additional details at a White House briefing Tuesday.

President Donald Trump's White House physician declared him in "excellent health" after the president received his first medical checkup at Walter Reed military hospital on Friday, undergoing a physical examination amid suggestions in a recent book and by his detractors that he's mentally unfit.

Trump spent about three hours with military doctors at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, an exam that White House doctor Ronny Jackson said went "exceptionally well".

Psychiatric exams are not part of presidential physicals, but Trump aides have insisted that Trump doesn't need one.

The White House announced it would offer reporters the chance to speak with Jackson in the middle of a debate over the president's mental fitness. "Whether it be up before dawn and up into the wee hours of the morning every day, it's been widely reported he only needs a few hours of sleep".

While the exams are not mandatory, modern presidents typically undergo them regularly and release a doctor's report declaring they are "fit for duty".

As a past president of the American Psychiatric Association, I feel strongly that my fellow psychiatrists, and any psychologists or therapists, should stop speculating publicly about President Trump's mental fitness and stop trying to diagnose possible mental conditions based on their armchair observations.

LG will likely make OLED panels for new 'iPhone X Plus'
The native resolution of the enormous display is 7680 x 4320 giving it 16 times more resolution than full HD (1920 x 1080). Samsung may have been behind Apple's debut OLED display, but for the 2018 lineup, Apple may go with a different chaebol.

When he was running for office, Trump released a glowing report from his personal physician in NY, who said Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency". He told reporters on Thursday that he expected the exam "to go very well". His EKG, chest X-ray, echocardiogram and blood sugar were normal.

Jackson, a Navy rear admiral, directs the White House medical unit and has worked as a White House physician since 2006. After a physical during the 2016 campaign, a statement from his doctor said the 6-foot-3 NY businessman weighed 236 pounds.

Trump was 70 when he took office on January 20, 2017, making him the oldest person ever elected to the nation's highest office.

Trump takes a statin to control cholesterol, baby aspirin to prevent heart attacks and Propecia to treat male-pattern baldness.

Trump likes fast food, too, along with well-done steaks, chocolate cake and double scoops of vanilla ice cream.

Now we have Michael Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury", in which the president's own staff members question Mr. Trump's stability and cognitive ability. White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told reporters Monday that Trump is "sharp as a tack".
