Trump Overweight, Doesn't Exercise, Like Most Americans


Trump denies he's a racist as Americans honour King

President Trump's physician, Navy Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson, told White House reporters that the president scored 30 out of 30 possible points on a cognitive test, the Montreal Cognitive Assessment.

But Trump is overweight at 239 pounds - 3 pounds heavier than last year, and Jackson suggested the president drop up to 15 pounds in the year ahead.

Despite Dr. Ronny Jackson's assessment of President Trump's health, questions remain.

"It's called genetics. I don't know". Jackson is going to try to put the president on a diet, but he joked that the commander-in-chief might just live to be 200.

Trump's heart exam was normal, with regular rhythm and no abnormal sounds, which Jackson said led him to conclude with confidence that Trump "has a very strong and a very probable possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues". "The good part is, we can build on that pretty easily", said Jackson, adding that some people have a daily exercise regimen while others like Trump don't.

The physician said he would increase Mr Trump's daily dose of Crestor, a cholesterol-lowering drug, and bring in a nutritionist to work with White House chefs.

Bennett's Jackson then said that it was in his "expert medical opinion" that the President has "a rockin' bod with a flawless amount of cushion for the pushing".

"He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part", Jackson said. "And it's concerning because you can start to say, 'Well, if you do nothing different, if things don't change, you can start to predict the likelihood of having some sort of heart event - cardiac event, a heart attack, or something like that - within a certain number of years'".

To the able-minded, the test may seem overly simple but they are some of the basic mental processes people with the disorder sadly lose. This weight is also three pounds higher than last reported in September 2016, according to a note from Trump's colorful longtime doctor Harold Bornstein.

The test given was the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, or MoCA.

That moment came up a lot recently after the White House announced that President Trump would undergo his official presidential physical, leading to speculation that the allegedly fast food-addicted, exercise-averse would receive poor marks.

Past presidents are not known to have been tested for mental acuity while in office - including Ronald Reagan, who five years after leaving the White House was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
