Positives and negatives of Donald Trump's first year in Presidency

I've seen people.then they get their new knees when they're 55 years old and they get their new hips and they do all those things.

Yet even with Trump's ideal score, folks on the Left - including many in the briefing room - scrambled to make sense of information that did not comport with their preconceived notions of this president's mental fitness.

Jackson also faced questions on whether Trump had dementia, OCD, diabetes, dentures, or heart problems.

David Axelrod, Mr. Obama's former senior adviser, said in 2011 that the president had "always been on my butt about this, and as a result, my butt is a little bit smaller".

"Whoever got that 30 points answered all the questions correctly".

"He has absolutely no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever", Dr Jackson said.

According to administration and scoring instructions, the MoCA exam is a rapid screening test and assesses different cognitive functions like attention, concentration, language and conceptual thinking.

President Donald Trump's doctor, Dr. Ronny Jackson, characterized the president's health as "excellent", but like the majority of Americans, Trump is overweight and he doesn't get enough exercise. "Incredible cardiac fitness", was Dr. Jackson's professional opinion.

Analysing the President's physical exam results, President Trump does appear to be very healthy.

He said on Wednesday that the most alarming fact is that the president's LDL levels remain above 140 even though he is taking 10 milligrams of Crestor, a powerful drug that is used to lower cholesterol levels to well below 100.

The President himself decided what to make public, in accordance with medical privacy rules.

The White House physician commented that he and the president spoke about his weight - which is 239 (Trump is 6 feet 3 inches tall).

While White House aides did not respond to questions about the president's weekend plans, Mulvaney told reporters he didn't expect Trump to go to Florida Saturday.

But when he golfs, Trump reportedly travels mostly on a cart, and on the campaign trail counted his rallies as exercise. Jackson said Trump requested a cognitive exam to put the issue of his mental fitness to rest. The President said he would like to lose some, according to Jackson.

Jackson said Trump received a ideal score on a cognitive test created to screen for neurological impairment. Trump scored a ideal 30, according to Jackson.

His score suggests he has control of the basic faculties of his mind.

"The president is very sharp and he's very articulate when he speaks to me", Dr. Jackson said.

Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson was so effusive in extolling the totally wonderful, surpassingly marvelous, superbly stupendous and extremely awesome health of the president that the doctor sounded nearly Trumpian. "I mean, I'm strong, physically", Trump told Reuters.

They might even come to believe that a sedentary 71-year-old with significant plaque in his coronary arteries, high cholesterol and borderline obesity is the very picture of health.

Trump's 20/30 vision is very good for his age, according to Jackson.
