President Trump in excellent health despite high cholesterol and being overweight

He went on to describe Trump as "very sharp" and "very articulate when he speaks to me".

Trump last revealed details about his health two months before the November 2016 election, when he appeared on the "Dr. Oz" show to give details of a physical performed by his longtime physician, the eccentric Dr. Harold Bornstein.

In general, though, Jackson was upbeat about Trump's physical condition, prompting questions about how a septuagenarian man with such seemingly poor habits, including little apparent exercise apart from golfing (while driving in carts) and an affinity for greasy fast food, could fare so well in a thorough examination.

Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House physician who also served Barack Obama, declared Trump to be in "excellent health" but he advised him to improve his diet and exercise.

While Jackson said that the president is in excellent health, he said that he would set him up with diet and exercise plan to help him to lose between 10 and 15lbs over the next year.

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

"I found no evidence that the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought process", Jackson told reporters during Tuesday's White House briefing.

Trump also has no heart disease and no family history of it.

But reporters were most incredulous about how Jackson, who has been observing Trump for a calendar year, could conclude the often-erratic, self-wounding (politically) president is mentally fit for the job.

Meanwhile, a "girther" conspiracy over the height and weight numbers provided by Jackson about Trump quickly spread online.

"I would say right now on a day-to-day basis, he doesn't have a dedicated, defined exercise program", said Jackson. A BMI of 30 and over is considered obese.

Trump takes Crestor for his cholesterol, a low-dose aspirin for heart attack prevention, Propecia to treat male-pattern baldness and antibiotics for Rosacea, the medical report revealed.

Cognitive assessments aren't routine in standard physicals, though they recently became covered in Medicare's annual wellness visits for seniors. And Jackson seemed most impressed by Trump's cardiac health.

Critics wondered aloud about Trump's ability to perform his duties, as some psychiatrists around the country ignored their profession's stricture against making assessments in the absence of a personal exam to suggest that Trump had dementia.
