Read The Full Summary Of Trump's Physical Exam Report

That's according to his White House physician, Navy doctor Ronny Jackson.

"I think he will remain fit for duty for the remainder of this term and even for the remainder of another (four-year) term if he's elected". The doc initially said the exam "went exceptionally well", but cautioned there's room for improvement. Jackson acknowledged Trump takes Propecia, a hairloss medicine.

Jackson said he had recommended a diet control and exercise, but the president seemed to prefer the former - diet.

Dr. Jackson said because the president does not drink or smoke, it has made a healthy difference in his life. Jackson said he would increase that dose in an effort to get Trump's so-called "bad" cholesterol, or LDL level, below 120; it now is 143.

White House doctor Ronny Jackson highlighted Trump's "excellent" cardiac health and also praised his eyesight.

When asked howthe president could be so healthy considering his well-known affinity for fast food, diet soda and a relatively sedentary lifestyle, Jackson chalked it up to genetics.

The "president did exceedingly well" in the cognitive screening, a basic test of a patient's mental health and a test of whether or not a patient might have or be showing signs of dementia.


"I have no concerns about his cognitive ability", Jackson told reporters from the briefing room.

"There's no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues", Jackson said, adding, "I've found no reason whatsoever to think the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought processes".

Trump is just short of being classified as obese, Jackson said. He said "all clinical data indicates that the president is now very healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency".

During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump began questioning the health of Democrat Hillary Clinton. It is a well-known and well-tested assessment that doctors can quickly use to detect "mild cognitive dysfunction", according to the test instructions.

Regarding the president's diet, which reportedly includes Diet Cokes, KFC, and McDonald's, the doctor agreed that he could lose 10-15 pounds.

Among other details, Jackson's summary included the president's height and weight-75 inches and 239 pounds.
