Accuracy of Donald Trump's medical report and height questioned

Accuracy of Donald Trump's medical report and height questioned

A Navy rear admiral, Dr Ronny L Jackson, who conducted and supervised the last of three physicals for president, is coordinating the exam.

Where Dr. Harold Bornstein was shaggy and sensational, Jackson was all business, reading off test results in his blue and gold dress uniform.

"He has gone above and beyond what I would consider a requirement to demonstrate his cognitive abilities", Jackson said and added about the exam: "It does rule out the need to do any other cognitive assessment".

With his first medical check up as president already scheduled, Trump apparently asked for a cognitive test to be included to prove his "many enemies" wrong and put an end to the rumours.

Negotiations over immigration went off the rails last Thursday after Trump - who at first sounded receptive - reportedly shot down a bipartisan deal offered by Graham and Durbin and questioned why the United States accepted immigrants from "shithole countries", referring to Africa, Haiti and El Salvador.

Some feel it's suspiciously coincidental that if Trump weighed just one more pound, his body mass index would be 30, which would push him from overweight to obese on the BMI scale.

UAE submits complaint with United Nations over Qatar's interception of Emirati planes
It said the interception was a threat to the safety of the civil flights a breach to the rules of worldwide law, WAM reported. Qatar denies the charge and has accused the four countries of trying to make it conform to their foreign policy positions.

"The president is mentally very sharp, very intact".

Jackson said the president did not have dentures, and explained the slurring of his speech at a recent event on Jerusalem as a result of taking too much Sudafed.

Jackson said on Tuesday that Trump asked him to perform the cognitive exam, which the doctor had not planned to do, having deemed it unnecessary. Trump has previously declared himself "a very stable genius", and agreed to undergo medical examinations.

"Most of us could lose a couple of pounds", he said, before scanning the Reuters reporters in the room and pronouncing them in "pretty good shape".

Graham blamed somebody in the White House who gave the president "really bad advice" for Trump's about-face. It has never been done on any other president he has tended to over the years, Jackson said. Jackson acknowledged he had spoken with the president about "diet, exercise and weight loss", and said a nutritionist would be working with the president to change his eating habits. "Some people have great genes". I told the President that if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old. "Many Republicans are willing to have a DACA fix", he said. "I stand by every word that I said", Cotton said Tuesday.

It's not clear whether the test also screens for less serious personality disorders such as narcissistic personality disorder, which is another impairment Trump has been accused of suffering from.
