White House Slaps Down Trump Health Conspiracy Theorists

White House Slaps Down Trump Health Conspiracy Theorists

The White House has released the summary of Donald Trump's physical exam, following concerns raised over the president's cognitive abilities by a tell-all book that suggested his aides were concerned about his mental state.

According to Jackson, Trump weighs 239 pounds and is 6 feet, 3 inches tall.

Trump is known to consume copious amounts of fast food, candy, and soda, and doesn't maintain a regular exercise regimen.

Sanders noted that Jackson is the only doctor that has examined Trump and is "the only credible source when it comes to diagnosing any health concerns".

"I've got to know him pretty well". "Some people just 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", the doctor went on.

Exercise? President Trump says he gets plenty of it-but you likely won't see him in a gym anytime soon.

"It's a screening assessment that we use routinely in the clinics to determine whether someone has some degree of cognitive impairment or not", he said.




For almost an hour Tuesday, Jackson stood in the White House briefing room, answering questions from reporters about President Trump's physical exam, conducted last Friday. 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. He'd like the president to lose 10 to 15 pounds over the next year.

Jackson confirmed that there is "no indication whatsoever that the President has cognitive issues".

And if he did, Jackson declared, "I would bring that up to the proper people in the chain of command".

President Trump asked his doctor to perform an exam testing his cognitive abilities during his physical last week even though the physician said the exam was not necessary. The host also cracked it was more worrying that Trump did some of the things he does-like tweet the word "covfefe"-while apparently of completely sound mind".

US President Donald Trump is in "excellent" health and mentally fit for presidency, according to the presidential physician. Jackson said he'd be arranging to have a dietitian consult with the White House chef to cut calories and would be recommending a low-impact, aerobic exercise programme for Trump.

Jackson explained that the test is created to reveal evidence of Alzheimer's disease or other issues.

Jackson said that there is no reason Trump wouldn't be able to complete his first term healthwise, in addition to a second term if re-elected.
