Tests of the liver, kidney and thyroid were all normal. But the president requested he be tested, anyway.

Jackson, who reportedly advised Trump to change his diet but otherwise approved of the test results, explained in the conference why a cognitive exam was conducted on the president.

Trump's critics have openly questioned his mental health, and an explosive book on his presidency published earlier this month described aides as having doubts about his fitness for office.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes put a label on the skeptics, tweeting, "Has anyone coined "girther" for those who believe the president weighs more than his doctor reports?". "He saw doing the physical as an opportunity to put some of that to rest", Dr. Jackson said during a almost hourlong question-and-answer session in the White House briefing room.

This is a basic test of cognitive function using things such as identifying pictures of animals, elementary math equations and word memory questions. The doctor and patient repeat the word test one more time.

The part of the testing that got the most attention, however, was that of cognitive testing.

Jackson said the President sleeps only four to five hours a night but rarely sees the President overly stressed. He aced it and got 30 out of 30.

"The president is mentally very sharp, very intact". "He is fit for duty".

The doctor who cared for President Obama and serves as President Trump's White House physician said Tuesday that the president received a flawless score on a cognitive test created to screen for neurological impairment, which the military doctor said was evidence that Trump does not suffer from mental issues that prevent him from functioning in office.

Trump also takes aspirin daily to prevent heart disease, a multivitamin and applies a cream called ivermectin, as needed, to treat skin condition rosacea, Jackson said. "I was on a treadmill for the first time actually in quite a while, and it was at a very steep angle, and I was there for a very long time", he said.

"He falls into a category that portends years of event-free living", Jackson said.
