President Donald Trump is physically and mentally in excellent condition, according to his personal physician in the White House.
Last week Trump insisted on testing his mental abilities as well, Dr. Ronny Jackson said Tuesday in Washington. “I have no concerns about his mental abilities.”
The same applies to the neurological functions. Triggered by the book “Fire and Fury” by journalist Michael Wolff, there had been recent speculation in Washington about Trump’s state of mind. Based on numerous collaborators Trumps suggests the book, Trump is unable to do his job.
Passed the highest score test
Jackson said Trump passed the test of cognitive ability with 30 out of 30 points. He also sees the president constantly in the White House, sometimes up to three times a day. He also has no reason to doubt his mental capacity – he had not suggested to him the appropriate test. According to Jackson, there are no signs whatsoever of Trump for Alzheimer’s or dementia. “The president is very clear spiritually.”
Overall, the doctor gave Trump a tip-top certificate. The president was in a remarkable and unusually good condition for a man of his age. Above all, all values that concern his heart, are outstanding.
Trump’s resting heart rate was 68, his blood pressure was 122/74. Trump also takes a cholesterol-lowering drug alongside aspirin and, according to Dr. Jackson, a remedy for hair loss.
“It’s the genes”
Asked why Trump, despite his well-known high consumption of fast food and cola, has such good health, Jackson said, “It’s the genes.” In addition, Trump is getting on well, that he is a non-smoker for life and does not drink a drop of alcohol.
Jackson said there were no health concerns as to why Trump could not serve until the end of his term.
However, Jackson said, he advised Trump to lose weight. Trump is 1.90 meters tall and weighs 108.4 kilograms. That would make Trump very overweight. He would come to a body mass index of 29.9.
With his current height Trump would have grown over the course of time a good two inches, reported “Politico” and “New York Times” with reference to Trump’s New York driver’s license data. This value just lets him slip past attested obesity.
Jackson said they wanted to get overweight with better nutrition and exercise. Trump is happy about it only so medium: “He is much more pleased with the part of the diet than with the sport, but we will do both.” Trump currently has no daily training program in the true sense. The goal is a weight loss of more than five kilograms. “The president realizes that he would be healthier if he took a few pounds.”
Trump’s recent mumbo-jumbo public appearances and the occasional grab for a glass of water were due to a medication that had dried his mouth, Jackson said. Trump’s indistinct pronunciation quickly gave rise to all kinds of speculation.
