What's the Montreal Cognitive Assessment test Trump took?

Trump is the oldest person ever elected as USA president for the first time, and his decisions during his first year in office have raised plenty of hackles (most recently, he reportedly called a number of countries "s***holes" from which the U.S. did not want migrants).

White House physician Ronny Jackson told reporters on Tuesday that he had screened Trump for neurological impairments at the President's asking during a yearly medical exam last week, and that Trump had scored 30 out of 30 on the cognitive test.

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, who has taken a leading role DACA negotiations and attended the Thursday meeting at the White House, said publicly that Trump repeatedly used the word "shithole" to describe the countries, calling the remarks "hate-filled, vile, and racist". "I don't dispute that the president was using tough language", Nielsen said, adding that several people in the room were using profanity.

In recent weeks, the USA government has been withdrawing Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to people of various nationalities who now live in the country.

"He said, 'I want you to get out there and I want you to talk to them and I want you to answer every single question they have, ' " Jackson said.

The person believes the discrepancy may be why some Republican senators are denying having heard the president say "shithouse".

Trump was said to have uttered "s-thole" during last Thursday's conversation in the Oval Office, a version backed up by Sen.

Some Republicans have even reportedly attempted to defend the term "shithouse" by saying Trump was referring to literal outhouses and was not making a racial remark.

Lindsey Graham brought a plan to Trump that involved cutting the visa lottery in half and, at the behest of the Congressional Black Caucus, the rest would go to underrepresented countries in Africa and Temporary Protected Status nations, including Haiti.

When Trump was asked on Sunday if he considered that the comments had made it hard to obtain an immigration agreement, Trump responded: "Have you seen what several senators said about my comments?" That number puts Trump on the cusp of - but just under - the obesity mark.

"I didn't hear it, and I was sitting no further away from Donald Trump than Dick Durbin was", Cotton said on CBS's "Face the Nation".

UN Human Rights Spokesman Rupert Colville said at a press conference in Geneva: "There is no other word that can be used but racist, you cannot label entire countries and continents as "shit-holes".

The Republican has said the comments "weren't made" and that he's not a racist.

"There are "good" genes, but what research has shown us is that more than genes, more than health care, more than social circumstances, behaviors are the leading cause of premature death", says Bernadette Melnyk, a professor and dean of Ohio State University's college of nursing and the university's chief wellness officer. "Then the American leadership will understand that it made a mistake". But this is the first time that the president responds directly to accusations of racism.

"The Democrats want to shut down the Government over Amnesty for all and Border Security", Trump tweeted.

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the US after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people briefed on the conversation. "Do we need more Haitians?"

Jackson said he will work with Trump to exercise more over the coming year, to eat better and lose between 10 and 15 pounds.

"It's called genetics. I don't know". Associated Press writers Alan Fram, Marcy Gordon, and Josh Lederman contributed from Washington.
