President Donald Trump is defending his exercise routine after the White House doctor this week said he doesn't really have one.
According to Michael Wolff, author of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, all of the president's White House aides see him as a "child" who needs "immediate gratification".
The doctor stated that hands down Trump is in the excellent range for a male of his age, partially based on his excellent cardiac health.
Jackson says the President scored a flawless 30 for 30 on the cognitive test. If you do well on it, I think anything above 26 is normal. The statement reads: "The President's physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well".
Jackson said, "Some people exercise, some people don't. And then to be called into the President's office to explain it to him and find that we've been sandbagged", Durbin added. "He came to me and he said, 'Is there something we can do, a test or some type of screening that we can do, to assess my cognitive ability?' And so I looked into it". The 10-minute exam is created to detect mild cognitive impairment, generally in older patients.
Mr Trump is considered overweight and borderline obese at 1.9m tall and 108 kg.
"It would pick up on it". Dr. Ronny Jackson, who also worked with the previous administration, says he speaks to the president daily and didn't feel he even needed the test.
"I was on a treadmill for the first time actually in quite a while, and it was at a very steep angle, and I was there for a very long time", he said. "There is no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues".
The doctor also mentioned that in addition to taking Advil and Crestor, a drug used to control cholesterol levels, Trump also takes Propecia, a drug used to stem hair loss.
Trump's comments come less than a week after his first physical since taking office.
"The President is mentally very, very sharp; very intact", Jackson told reporters."Absolutely, he's fit for duty".
Here's Cotton on CBS's "Face the Nation": "I did not hear derogatory comments about. individuals or persons, no".
Meanwhile, Rex Tillerson, US secretary of state, says his country has a strong relationship with African countries and is interested in having such ties with them in future.
