"Absolutely, he [Trump] is fit for duty. I think he will remain fit for duty for the remainder of this term and even the remainder of another term if he is elected," Jackson told reporters on Tuesday.
The physician who performed President Trump's medical exam has given him a clean bill of health, pointing that he shouldn't have any health problems as he completes his term. He also said Trump asked for and passed a cognitive exam. #PBSNEWS pic.twitter.com/sL38ND51Mn— PBS NewsHour (@NewsHour) 16 января 2018 г.
Trump is mentally very sharp and very intact, and there are absolutely no concerns about the US president's cognitive abilities, no signs of diseases such as dementia or Alzheimer's, Jackson said.
….Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 6 января 2018 г.
Jackson also said that Trump’s cardiac health is incredible, but the president's cholesterol is rather high and the president’s medical team is aiming to reduce it.
Trump is taking the prescription medicine Crestor to lower his cholesterol, Jackson noted.
….to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 6 января 2018 г.
Jackson said he has recommended that Trump loses weight and starts a regular exercise program.
The president's current weight is 239 pounds and the set goal is to lose 10-15 pounds this year.
During Trump's first year in office, some US media outlets have speculated about Trump's physical and mental health, suggesting he should resign or be forced to leave the US presidency.
