What Do Trump's Cognitive Test Results Show?

What Do Trump's Cognitive Test Results Show?

He said the language Trump used was "explicit" and reflects the president's view that "we would favor some countries like Norway and the Europeans at the expense of Africans and people from Haiti".

Barack Obama then promoted Jackson to the role of presidential physician, a role which has continued under President Trump.

Trump scored a ideal 30 out of 30 points on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA, pronounced "mocha"), which he took in an apparent effort to put to rest questions about his mental abilities, The New York Times reported.

It's not hard for a person without any cognitive impairment to get a ideal score on the MoCA, said Dr. Collin Herman, a neurology resident physician at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, in North Carolina.

Trump said in the Reuters interview that he already gets exercise.

Donald Trump is in "excellent" health and has passed the cognitive test with flying colours, the White House physician said after the United States president underwent his annual medical check-up to quell questions about his mental abilities. His blood pressure was 122/74, within normal bounds, and his cholesterol was on the high side, Jackson said.

Trump takes Crestor for his cholesterol, a low-dose aspirin for heart attack prevention, Propecia to treat male-pattern baldness and antibiotics for rosacea.


Jackson recommended that the president eat a healthier diet, exercise regularly and lose 4 to 7kgs. "So yes, I have great respect for people who- great respect for this doctor, but if that's what 6'3", 239 pounds looks like, that's a shock to me".

Trump was responding to questions as he met with Kazakhstan's president Nursultan Nazarbayev (nur-sul-TAHN' nah-sar-BAH'-yev) at the White House on Tuesday. Later, Trump attempted to clarify matters by tweeting he was a "very stable genius". "The president is mentally very sharp, very intact", the doctor said.

Questioning Trump's reported weight has even spawned the #GirtherMovement on Twitter - a reference to Trump claiming former President Barack Obama was not born in the USA and questioning the legitimacy of his birth certificate. As the President's physician, Jackson travels with Trump on almost all of his trips and works in close proximity to Trump on a daily basis.

The President himself decided what to make public from his exam, in accordance with medical privacy rules. A doctor asks the patient to say as many words that begin with a single letter given by the doctor.

He made the conclusion based on information from the president's recent physical.

Trump underwent the medical exam on Friday at Walter Reed National Medical Center.
