"The president's overall health is excellent", the report said in conclusion.
"I guess they all realized they're going to have to leave it to a president that scored the highest on tests. In my experience, he was very good guy and straight shooter".
"He's probably been that way his whole life", Jackson said. "He has incredible genes, I assume".
Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the chief medical correspondent for CNN, repeatedly expressed concern Wednesday about test results that showed Trump's coronary calcium score had increased to 133, from 34 in 2009. "Can you characterise that as excellent health?"
And not just his heart!
I've received plenty of letters and emails just like this in the year since Trump mounted the steps of the U.S. Capitol, took the oath of office and embarked on the most exhausting, topsy-turvy and wildly offensive first 365 days of any president in modern memory. And the doctor said he would be working with the president, who is already on a light does of cholesterol reducing drug, to lower it further. Very, very sharp, very intact.
"There is no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues. The president did exceedingly well".
"The president has acknowledged he'd be healthier if he lost a few pounds", Jackson said.
Tuesday's depiction of Trump as much healthier than the average 71-year-old means he is managing to escape the consequences of a lack of sleep, the dangers of significantly elevated "bad cholesterol" and the well-established health effects of obesity, poor nutrition and lack of exercise. Jackson blamed himself, for prescribing Sudafed. Several said Trump's goal should be to get his LDL below 100, or even under 70.

The event included a three-part panel where, according to White House spokeswoman Lindsey Walters, "women from various backgrounds and experiences. will speak with high-level women within the Trump administration".
Jackson has been a well-regarded doctor.
The same reporter also asked, "Do you keep a tally of how much golf the USA president plays - that is something the press office repeatedly does not tell us". What makes them trash their dignity? Questions about Trump's mental fitness have been raised following comments attributed to some of his close advisers in a new book, and his recent slurring of words on national TV.
"Many of you may have picked up on the fact that we did do a cognitive assessment", Jackson said.
Democrats accused Republicans of selective amnesia, as Kirstjen Nielsen testified under oath that she "did not hear" Trump use a certain vulgarity to describe African countries. "30 out of 30". MoCa is a very accurate way to detect early signs of Alzheimer's.
Jackson briefed reporters on the finding of Trump's first presidential physical conducted Friday.
Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the USA 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.
His exercise instead comes from regular golf trips, although he claimed that he typically rides in a golf cart as he doesn't want to "spend the time" walking.
