Can you beat Trump's cognitive test

"I think a reasonable goal over the next year or so is to lose 10 or 15 pounds", Jackson said.

Navy doctor Ronny Jackson on Tuesday provided details of Trump's first physical last Friday at the Walter Reed military hospital in Maryland. The doc initially said the exam "went exceptionally well", but cautioned there's room for improvement. Jackson also added that Trump's blood pressure and heart rate is completely normal.

Dr Jackson said he prescribed a diet lower in fat and carbohydrates, and exercise. 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.

Jackson told reporters during a press briefing that the cognitive exams were conducted at Trump's request and that he had no concerns over the president's mental abilities.

"He's very sharp. He's very articulate when he speaks to me", Jackson said. The test itself was created in 1996 and quizzes patients on an array of factors including concentration, calculations, visual skills and language.

Those challenging the health assessment are calling their crusade the "Girther" movement, a take on the notorious, Trump-led "Birther Movement" that was dedicated to proving that President Obama was not born in the United States.

Trump, 71, is 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 239 pounds, Jackson said, which is classified as overweight and is 1 pound away from being obese, according to the NIH's body mass index calculator. Jackson said there is "absolutely nothing" that is being withheld from the public and that Trump's release of information is "hands down" the broadest in history.

"Can you explain to me how a guy who eats McDonald's and fried chicken and all the Diet Cokes and who never exercises is in as good of shape as you say he's in?"

"It's called genetics", the doctor said. Trump also takes aspirin daily for his heart, propecia for hair loss, a daily vitamin and an occasional cream for rosacea, a skin condition. "It would pick up on it", Dr. Jackson said. Jackson shot down one theory, saying that the president does not wear dentures.
