The Montreal Cognitive Assessment, on which Trump scored a flawless 30 out of 30, can help detect Alzheimer's disease as well as mild cognitive impairment, but is not the same as a psychological examination.
An incident last month when Trump appeared to slur his speech may have been due to medication: the decongestant Sudafed, taken on Jackson's advice, may have "dried up his secretions", the doctor said in response to one reporter's question.
Jackson confirmed that there is "no indication whatsoever that the President has cognitive issues".
I think that the medical team at the White House does this president justice and the recommendations of diet and exercise are the only prescriptions necessary.
"I have no concerns about his cognitive ability or neurological functions", Ronny Jackson said on Tuesday.
'I actually do not know that sir, ' Nielsen responded, a comment that earned her a dressing-down from Sen.
White House doctor Ronny Jackson highlighted Trump's "excellent" cardiac health and also praised his eyesight. So I was not going to do a cognitive exam. "I mean, I'm strong, physically", Trump told Reuters.
Trump's reported remark during an immigration meeting with USA lawmakers last week prompted criticism from both sides of the congressional aisle, with some Democrats and Republicans denouncing it as racism.
It was Mr. Trump's first physical examination as President amid speculation about his mental fitness for office, spurred by the publication of a damaging book that suggested Mr. Trump's own aides worry about his stability.
"Considering the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the U.S. during the Atlantic slave trade, this flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice".
"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Senator Durbin said. Isn't Trump demonstrating that he's nothing but a racist and pursuing a policy of "Make America White Again"?
