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.

At present the ATP Tour is based on a partnership between the players and those tournaments which make up the bulk of the circuit. We talked about things that we talked about. "It was great to be back", Wawrinka said afterwards.
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.

She was 4-1 down in the second before knuckling down to race home and a second round clash with China's Duan Yingying. Ostapenko will take on veteran Francesca Schiavone, while US Open winner Sloane Stephens begins against Zhang Shuai.
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.

The company's new concept store is in Quincy, Mass., the same city where the original Dunkin' Donuts opened 68 years ago. Labeled only "Dunkin'" on the outside, the store is the first test of the company's future concept, which opened today.
