Donald Trump ASKED for mental health check amid fears over 'erratic behaviour'

President Donald Trump is in "excellent" physical and cognitive health, according to his physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, who shared the results of Trump's first physical at a press conference Tuesday.

Jackson says Trump is healthy and should remain so for the remainder of his presidency. The doctor said he would also design a daily exercise program for Trump.

"I told the President that if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years he might live to be 200 years old", Jackson said, eliciting laughter from reporters. "Some people have great genetics".

"He continues to enjoy the significant long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol", he added.

"I had no intentions whatsoever of doing that, like I said, because I didn't feel it was clinically indicated", Jackson said.

Jessica Falkholt: Australian actor dies after Boxing Day vehicle crash
Jessica's heartbroken relatives had been keeping a vigil beside her hospital bed hoping for a speedy recovery. One them, Rheanan Martin said: "I'm praying for Jessica Falkholt ".

Donald Trump asked for a cognitive test to be carried out as part of his first medical check-up as President, his physician has revealed.

Trump has stated openly that exercise is overrated, even going so far as to say that it can create more problems than it cures. "He and I will work together over the next year to incorporate a good plan".

Mishori disagreed with Jackson's assessment that Trump would be healthy for the rest of his term and possibly a second four-year term. That means Trump is overweight and just one pound shy of obesity, according to the body mass index put forth by the federal Health and Human Services department. After a physical during the 2016 campaign, a statement from his doctor said the 6-foot-3 NY businessman weighed 236 pounds.

But despite the extra weight, Trump seems to be in very good shape.

The White House doctor would like to see Trump lose 10-15 pounds.

Long-running questions about Trump's fitness for office were given new fuel by Michael Wolff's White House expose in which staff expressed concern about Trump repeating himself.

Mr Trump's overall health "is excellent" and he did "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening, the medic added.

Nasreddine says the exam doesn't test for everything: it doesn't examine judgment, or personality, and in certain cases, he says, it can be duped by an extremely educated subject. "I found no reason whatsoever to think the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought process". Jackson would not comment on that prior comparison Tuesday, saying that he could only assess Trump today.

The test includes asking a patient to name several animals, draw a clock with the hands at a certain time, copy a cube and recall a short list of words, among others.

Asked about Bornstein's claims, Jackson demurred. When Jackson served under former President Barack Obama, Jackson shared a "detailed summary" of his medical assessment including the then president's vitals, and a lengthy account of physical tests and laboratory results.
