'Fit For Duty': White House Physician Sees No Concerns About Trump's Health

Jackson says that based on the clinical information he has on Mr. Trump and his year of observing the president, "I feel very confident that he has a very strong and a very probable possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues".

The results of Donald Trump's first presidential physical were revealed on Tuesday during a White House press briefing and, for the most part, the Commander in Chief received a clean bill of health.

President Trump spends a chunk of each day on the phone, whether it's a White House landline or "Trump One" or 'Trump Two, ' the nicknames his aides have given to his two cell phones.

Presidents aren't required to get a checkup, but modern presidents do so regularly and release a doctor's report on the findings. Given his height and weight, the president's body mass index falls just short of the defined threshold for obesity. Jackson said Trump requested a cognitive exam to put the issue of his mental fitness to rest.

But the USA president performed "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening, which is not standard but was requested by Trump.

Trump's "fake news awards" could inspire dictators around the world
Trump tweeted on January 2 the announcements were due on January 8 before he postponed them until Wednesday January 17. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders downgraded the scheduled show to a "potential event" on Tuesday.

The only medications he is now taking are Propecia for male hair loss, one for Rosacea and a multivitamin, Jackson also confirmed. "At the time of examination, the president was 71 years and 7 months young, his resting heart rate was a cool 68 bpm, his weight a very svelte 248 pounds, he has a gorgeous 44-inch coke-bottle waist, and his height, 75 inches with legs that seem to go on forever". The president is "very sharp" and "very articulate" in their conversations and does not repeat himself, he said. "He is fit for duty", Jackson said.

Though the session detailing the results of Trump's first presidential physical was lengthy, stretching almost an hour, Jackson was unable to answer whether Trump showed signs of any bone spurs when asked Tuesday.

The NBC variety show opened its episode Saturday night with Aidy Bryant's White House press secretary Sarah Sanders greeting the press corps by first mentioning Saturday's Women's March.

"I think a reasonable goal over the next year or so would be to lose 10 to 15 pounds", Jackson said.

Facebook's new mission looks well nigh impossible
Now Facebook and other tech firms are under scrutiny from Congress about whether their algorithms promoted fake information . Late on Thursday, Facebook announced a plan to emphasize more "meaningful" interactions on the platform .

Many do not believe Trump weighs 239 pounds, suggesting he weighs more than the announced weight.

Trump is taking the prescription medicine Crestor to lower his cholesterol, Jackson noted.

But when he golfs, Trump reportedly travels mostly on a cart, and on the campaign trail counted his rallies as exercise.

"He would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates", Jackson said.

Jackson said that he spoke with Trump about why the president may have audibly slurred his words during a speech on December 6 and asked an ear, nose and throat specialist to look into it.
