Trump's time on Capitol Hill was not spent negotiating with congressional leaders he has rankled in recent days after making disparaging comments about African countries and Haiti during a meeting with lawmakers last week, but his chief of staff John Kelly made the rounds of key lawmakers' offices on Wednesday in pursuit of a deal.
Trump was touched by the note, and tried to arrange a phone call with Obama, people familiar with the situation have said.
Jackson said he "initially had no intention" of including a test of the president's mental fitness in his first annual physical, and stressed that he had "absolutely no concerns about his cognitive ability or neurological functions".
His latest assignment: defusing doubts about the health and mental fitness of the nation's 71-year-old president.
The president would like to lose 10 to 15 pounds, according to the physician.
Side-by-side comparisons are popping up on social media where Trump is compared to athletes like Tim Tebow and Tom Brady, who are roughly the same height and weight as Trump is said to be. He passed a battery of heart exams including a stress test that Jackson said showed an above-average exercise capacity for a man of his age, despite some calcium buildup in his arteries.
At six feet, three inches tall, Trump had a body mass index (BMI) that puts him in the "overweight" range, according to the National Institutes of Health's online BMI calculator.More news: Sherman family's private investigators believe couple was murdered
President Trump got the last laugh with the media once again after notching a flawless score on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA), a cognitive test that screens for memory loss or early dementia.
President Donald Trump has a well-documented affection for fast food, red meat, and Diet Coke - and doesn't engage in any regular form of physical exercise. "It does rule out the need to do any other cognitive assessment", Jackson said.
"I think he has been clear, and I would certainly say undoubtedly the president will use ― continue to use ― strong language when it comes to this issue because he feels very passionately", Nielsen added. "He has incredible genes I just assume", Jackson said.
"I would say he sleeps four to five hours a night, and hes probably been that way his whole life".
Jackson said Trump has avoided some big heart risks - he's never smoked and isn't diabetic - and has no family history of heart problems.
