US President Donald Trump underwent his first physical exam as president last week, and the results were released to the public on Tuesday. It resulted in a flawless score. The President said he would like to lose some, according to Jackson.
Trump has not clarified to aides what he said, but told reporters Sunday night in Florida that comments attributed to him "weren't made". I don't know. Some people have just great genes. So I was not going to do a cognitive exam.
"It's called the Fat but Fit paradox", says Jennifer Kuk, Ph.D., an obesity researcher and an associate professor at York University School of Kinesiology and Health Science, in Toronto.
'The reason that we did the cognitive assessment is, plain and simple, because the president asked me to do it'. I understand that. But I'll tell you this: "I stand by every word I said about what was said and what happened". Jackson said he didn't feel the test was necessary.
Trump said Wednesday that he is strong and amazed the medical staff who conducted his physical exam last week by walking on a treadmill. Jackson said that in the days leading up to the speech, he had given the president some Sudafed, which had dried up his secretions and led to the problem.
'It would pick up on it.
Where Dr. Harold Bornstein was shaggy and sensational, Jackson was all business, reading off test results in his blue and gold dress uniform.
The doctor said he had "absolutely no concerns" about Mr Trump's cognitive abilities. He is very sharp'.

The price gouging law that protects consumers from scammers is now in effect in all 100 North Carolina counties due to Gov. A winter storm dumped snow Wednesday from the Florida Panhandle to ME as it left bone-chilling and icy conditions.
As the firestorm over Trump's comment began late last week, the White House and Trump's National Security Council provided no guidance to the State Department about what to say to foreign countries who were incensed, said a US official familiar with the conversations between the White House and other federal agencies.
But he noted that the president, who is 71 years old, stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 239 pounds, could use a bit more dieting and exercise. I don't think he does that anymore.
He added: "If I didn't watch what I ate I wouldn't have the. overall health that he has". Jackson said they set a "reasonable goal" of losing 10 to 15 pounds in the coming year and developing a regular fitness routine.
Trump's test, the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, was developed about a decade ago and includes tasks used to evaluate recognition, memory and the ability to understand abstract concepts.
A score of 26 or higher is considered 'normal.' In one study, test-takers with mild cognitive impairment typicallly scored 22.
His score is 133, and anything over 100 indicates plaque is present and that the patient has heart disease.
Questions about Trump's support arose earlier on Thursday after the president posted a tweet that said a children's healthcare provision in the legislation should be part of a long-term solution not a short-term bill.
