President Donald Trump Just Took The "Montreal Test" For Mental Health

President Donald Trump Just Took The

Muscle is nearly 20 per cent denser than fat, meaning people with defined bodies can weigh the same as, or more than, people the same height who aren't in such good shape.

Conversely, in his report on Tuesday, White House physician Dr. Ronny L. Jackson said Trump doesn't have a lot of the traditional risk factors for heart issues, like smoking or diabetes.

The president said his daily routine provided him some exercise. He succeeded Barack Obama as the 45th President of US on Jan 20, 2017 and since then he has been hogging the limelight for many good and bad reasons.

Presidents don't typically sit for cognitive assessments during their periodic physical exams.

But before long, Jackson's remarks that Trump was in good health were questioned. Tom Cotton and David Perdue and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to cover for Trump's racist outburst, and in the fawning public performances by White House officials Stephen Miller and Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Vice President Mike Pence is also scheduled to leave Washington Friday evening, on his three-country swing to the Middle East. Pence will go to Egypt, Israel and Jordan.


"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. Jackson accused doctors who have tried to diagnose Trump from afar of performing "tabloid psychiatry". True to form, Trump is now commenting on the matter, telling reporters that not only is he healthy, but he also exercises "more than people think". Jackson said he'd be arranging to have a dietitian consult with the White House chef to cut calories and would be recommending a low-impact, aerobic exercise program for Trump, with the aim of shedding 10 to 15 pounds this year.

And just how excellent is His Excellency's excellent health, doctor?

From barring people of seven Muslim-majority countries to recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital and terming North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un a "rocket man on a suicidal mission", the US President has always hit the headlines.

The 71-year-old's body mass index (BMI) of 29.9 puts him in the overweight category - and on the brink of obese - for his height at 6ft 3in. That statistics show Trump at the edge of obesity.

Doubters took to Twitter to express their suspicion of Trump's dimensions. The ultimate diagnosis was that Trump was in "excellent" health. Others, like CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta, claimed the numbers Jackson reported indicated that Trump had heart disease.

With such a bad dietary history, how can that be? "And, I have never known him to repeat himself around me", Mr. Jackson said.
