The results of President Trump's first formal medical exam since taking office were announced Tuesday, and the big news was that the physician involved, Navy Rear Adm. Ronny L. Jackson, said the 71-year-old president received a flawless score on a cognitive test. He gets plenty of exercise on the golf course and at the White House complex, the president told Reuters on Wednesday.
Co-host Meghan McCain asked Durbin if publicly disclosing what Trump said hurt any progress being made on a deal on the fate of almost 800,000 Dreamers - immigrants brought into the U.S.as children. "I run over to a building next door". She joins the two Republican senators, David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who were in the room for the "shithole" moment but not only denied that it was said (Trump's use of the vulgar word was widely confirmed, even by Fox News, and not denied by the White House until Trump tweeted a partial denial the next day) but also disparaged the integrity of Durbin for being truthful.
Sanders called the Graham-Durbin immigration bill a "complete failure" in terms of meeting the criteria Trump had laid out, adding it would provide on about one-tenth of what DHS official said "they needed" for border security. "I stand by every word that I said", Cotton said Tuesday.
He did say he was open to changing his diet, perhaps with smaller portion sizes on White House meals. And his military physician, who served in the same position under two other commanders in chief, faced an hour of increasingly incredulous questions from the White House press corps after he deemed Trump is of sound physical and mental condition. "Those four factors alone put him at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease", she said. "I want him back".
Trump is considered overweight and borderline obese at 6 feet 3 inches (1.9 metres) tall and 239 pounds (108 kg).
De Blasio discusses Manhattan congestion pricing
Some say they'd like to see exemptions for drivers heading to medical appointments or driving children to and from school. Driving a auto into the busiest parts of Manhattan could cost $11.52 under a major proposal prepared for Gov.
"Most of us could lose a couple of pounds", he said, before scanning the Reuters reporters in the room and pronouncing them in "pretty good shape". "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed, that I can tell you".
He said he had impressed medical staff with his recent performance on a treadmill, regular workouts or not.
"The African Union Commission is frankly alarmed at statements by the President of the United States when referring to migrants of African countries and others in such contemptuous terms", he said through his spokesperson Ebba Kalondo. "They were surprised. And they said, 'Well you can stop now, that's fantastic.' And I said, 'I can go much longer than this if you want me to'". He passed a battery of heart exams including a stress test that Jackson said showed an above-average exercise capacity for a man of his age, despite some calcium buildup in his arteries. "I don't believe those views represent America". I hit the ball far.
"The people that do the food at the White House are extraordinary, but I think they can maybe make the portions a little bit smaller and maybe we'll cut out some of the more fattening ingredients", he said.
