"All data indicates the president is healthy and will remain so for the duration of his presidency", doctor Ronny Jackson told a White House briefing following last week's physical, which determined the 71-year-old to be in "excellent" health.
We now know more about President Donald Trump's health than maybe any other sitting president in history - thanks to an unprecedented press conference with a U.S. Navy doctor and a frantic, Trump-hating press corps.
"I found no reason whatsoever to think that the President has any issues whatsoever with his thought process".
Among the medications Trump continues to take since his last physical as a candidate in 2016, according to Jackson, are a statin to lower cholesterol and finasteride to combat male pattern hair loss.
Ziad Nasreddine has just learned that the Montreal Cognitive Assessment he developed as a young neurologist two decades ago was used to assess the cognitive functions of one of the world's most powerful people.
Offering his conclusions, Dr Jackson said they were based on clinical information and his year of observing the president.
"The president is mentally very sharp, very intact", Jackson said.

The president's current roster of medicines includes a daily multivitamin; 10 milligrams of Crestor for his cholesterol; 81 milligrams of low-dose aspirin daily to help maintain heart health; and 1 milligram of Propecia for male pattern baldness, Jackson said. Being overweight is simply defined as a person whose weight is higher than what is considered a normal weight adjusted for height.
Jackson said Trump had a flawless score on the test.
"Me being up here right now, I think I need a drink of water", he said.
"We have conversations about many things most every day", the doctor said.
Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson is a White House doctor appointed by former President George W. Bush's tenure in 2006.
Jackson said the president sleeps only four to five hours a night but rarely sees the president overly stressed. His lectern-side manner was both professional and disarming - the polar opposite of Trump's personal physician, who drew ridicule with his medical pronouncements on the candidate back in 2015.
