US President Donald Trump's overall health "is excellent" and he did well on cognitive screening, the White House physician said on Tuesday.
Trump has a "very strong and a very probable possibility" of completing term "with no medical issues," his White House physician, Navy doctor Ronny Jackson, told a news briefing following Trump's first physical on Friday at the Walter Reed military hospital.
Trump, 71, is the oldest U.S. president at this point in his tenure and has faced questions about his health.
Weeks ago, Trump drew scrutiny after he appeared to get a dry mouth and slurred his words when delivering remarks, but White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said it was because the president's throat was dry.
President Donald Trump's doctor, Dr. Ronny Jackson, characterized the president's health as "excellent," but like the majority of Americans, Trump is overweight and he doesn't get enough exercise.
The President weighs 239 pounds. That means he's gained 3 pounds over the last year, according to his last official records. At 6 feet, 3 inches tall, Trump had a body mass index, or BMI, that puts him in the "overweight" range, according to the National Institutes of Health's online BMI calculator. The President is one pound shy of being considered obese, according to these calculations.
Jackson said he will work with Trump to design an exercise routine and eating program that will help him get a better handle on his weight. The President said he would like to lose some, according to Jackson.
