Ronny Jackson made those results public, telling reporters that Trump notched a ideal score of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment.

This was the test Nasreddine developed as a young researcher two decades ago, in an effort to quickly assess, within 10 or 12 minutes, whether someone has suffered light cognitive impairment or the onset of Alzheimer's disease, by asking them to perform tasks such as drawing a clock, identifying animals and remembering words.

"There is no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues".

Jackson said Trump, who has recently faced a swirl of speculation about his mental fitness, had himself requested a cognitive test in which he performed "exceedingly well". "So I had a long conversation with the cardiologist - not only the cardiologist at Walter Reed, but the cardiologist at Cleveland Clinic and several other well-known institutions - and everyone saw that as reassuring that he's gone this period of time and he's had that much - or that little of a change in his coronary calcium load", Jackson said Tuesday.

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

Trump is now taking several types of daily medication, Jackson wrote, including aspirin; Rosuvastatin to lower cholesterol; Finasteride to aid in the prevention of male pattern hair loss; Ivermectin to treat rosaccea when needed; and a multivitamin product.

Trump took office at age 70, making him the oldest incoming USA president.

According to the report carried out by Dr Ronny Jackson, the 71-year-old is 6ft 3ins (1.9m) tall and weighs 239 pounds (108kg). "I told the president if he had eaten healthier over the last 25 years, he might live to be 200".

Dr. Jackson said because the president does not drink or smoke, it has made a healthy difference in his life.

Trump has agreed to get rid of 4.5-6 kg of body fat in the next one year by combining diet, exercise and medication.

Mr Trump's cholesterol reading from Friday's exam was borderline high even though he takes a low dose of the statin drug Crestor.

Apart from this, Trump has no problems in vision, head, ears, nose, and throat.

When asked how a man whose diet consists of so many hamburgers could be in such good shape, Dr Jackson said: "It's called genetics".

"The president does take Ambien a sleep aid. on overseas travel", Dr. Jackson said. The public has a clear interest in knowing about Trump's health, and the White House's previous disregard for the truth can't help but color this stuff. "If you do - certainly, if you get a 30 out of 30, I think you can confidently assume that you're done on the cognitive workup for now".

"He has one of the cleanest lifestyles in the world", Eric Trump said of his father on Fox & Friends Wednesday.

Jackson came under fire for saying that Trump is in "excellent" health while some of the numbers provided by the White House in the summary of Trump's physical told a different story.

The president gets an EKG and likely other expensive tests that doctors usually advise against unless they're absolutely necessary.
