Jackson said that during the exam he and Trump discussed his diet, setting a goal of losing 10-15 pounds. That means he's gained 3 pounds over the a year ago, according to his last official records.

At 6-foot-3 and 239 pounds, the 71-year-old president had a blood pressure reading of 122/74 and a resting heart rate of 68 beats per minutes.

That was despite his height and weight (6ft 3in, and 239lbs) giving him a BMI score that classes him as overweight - and dangerously close to obese.

Former US presidents have undergone at least one medical check-up which is considered compulsory.

Even without the buns, Trump's favorite fast-food meal is a diet-buster. "In order to further reduce his cholesterol level and further decreases his cardiac risk, we will increase the dose of this particular medication", Jackson said.

Past presidential physicals have also included lifestyle details like diet and exercise routines.

In terms of exercise, Jackson said Trump could use a variety of machines - such as a stationary bike, elliptical, or treadmill - to get his cardio in.

The physician also addressed reports that Trump slept about four to five hours a night.

'Most of us could lose a couple of pounds, ' he said, before scanning the Reuters reporters in the room and pronouncing them in 'pretty good shape'.

Dr Ronny Jackson, who performed the check-up, issued a blanket declaration on Tuesday that the president was in "excellent health" despite his unhealthy habits.

The truth of Trump's view on exercise is more complicated than just his pretending that he "get [s] more exercise than people think".

"He has incredible genes and that's the way God made him".

At the president's request, Jackson said that he reviewed a number of cognitive tests and then administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment during Trump's first presidential physical exam on Friday afternoon at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Faced with a barrage of questions over the President's mental health at an hour-long briefing, Jackson said: "I have no concerns about his cognitive ability or neurological functions".

In the book, sources close to the president and the administration had said that Trump was prone to repetition and that aides regularly questioned his mental stability. The doctor said that he did not originally plan on doing a cognitive assessment as he has seen the president and interacted with him nearly every day and did not see a need for it; however, the President requested that a cognitive assessment be included in the examination of his health.
