The fast-food-loving Trump praised Jackson, who has served as a physician to previous presidents, but seemed wary of taking the not-so-subtle suggestion to use the White House's exercise facilities.

Jackson then took questions, and one White House reporter said, "Some people are saying these results are fabricated because they've taken even one look at the president, what do you say to that?"

Navy doctor Ronny Jackson says his assessment is based on Mr. Trump's cardiac assessment.

Trump's request came in the wake of the behind-the-scenes White House book "Fire and Fury", which spurred questions about Trump's mental state. As far as Trump's mental health, Jackson said he "had absolutely no concerns about his cognitive ability or his neurological functions".

Jackson gave him the Montreal Cognitive Assessment.

In general, patients with good or average memory forget one of the five words and can still be within the normal range, said Dr. James Mastrianni, an expert in memory disorders and other neurodegenerative conditions at the University of Chicago Medicine.

Asked how someone with Trump's diet and no known exercise routine could achieve such relatively strong physical results, Jackson said there was no definite answer.

While much of the discussion online was sceptical of the claims made in the president's medical report, some defended Mr Trump and slammed the girther movement.

The Gunners then had to wait until the 35th minute to threaten again, Begovic using his feet to deny Danny Welbeck one-on-one. Bournemouth had their second of the day soon afterwards when a long ball forward picked out Wilson in the Arsenal box.

CNN divulged more details about Trump's habits during so-called 'executive time, ' a term used on the president's schedule to indicate he's doing work, but often from the Yellow Oval room, located in the residence.

Girthers are demanding that the president step on the scales in public to prove his weight.

The NBC variety show opened its episode Saturday night with Aidy Bryant's White House press secretary Sarah Sanders greeting the press corps by first mentioning Saturday's Women's March.

Who is Dr Ronny Jackson?

Dr. Jackson said at Tuesday's briefing that after conducting last week's physical, he and the president set a goal of losing 10-15 pounds.

So, Trump is just one pound shy of being considered obese.

"He's very sharp. He's very articulate when he speaks to me", Jackson said.

Jackson said that he spoke with Trump about why the president may have audibly slurred his words during a speech on December 6 and asked an ear, nose and throat specialist to look into it.
