Trump health check: would you pass the Montreal cognitive test?

Trump health check: would you pass the Montreal cognitive test?

If you do well on it, I think anything above 26 is normal.

Jackson said that he has a goal for the president of losing 10-15 pounds through a regimen of diet and exercise, telling reporters, "He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part, but we're going to do both".

Lindsey Graham of SC said Trump had drastically changed his tune on a compromise immigration bill just before the Thursday meeting.

With his reported eating habits and lack of exercise, it made sense for the White House to "release all of this data to show that ... he is in good health", Mishori said.

The 71-year-old president performed "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening, which is not a standard exam for the checkup but which was requested by Trump. Trump denied the claims, and said he is not a racist.

Trump's score places him squarely in the mid-risk range for a man of his age, Dr Gupta said.

He was referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects young people who came to the children and are living here illegally.

The White House said Trump had no intention of apologizing.

Trump's blood pressure was 122 over 74, and his total cholesterol was 223, which is higher than recommended, even though he takes a low dose of the statin drug Crestor.

"We appreciate that he, as one of our candidates for statewide offices, is out there on the frontlines calling out the governor and calling out Trump", Morgan said.

Afterward Trump insisted in a tweet that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, one of the six senators in the meeting with Trump on Thursday, supported Durbin's account. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a private conversation.

The White House has not substantively disputed accounts of the episode, in which Trump is said to have used the term "s--hole" to describe African countries of origin for potential immigrants to the U.S. The revelations, semi-denials and continuing comments have cast a pall over the White House's legislative agenda, brought the country closer to the brink of a government shutdown and sparked global outrage.

Ronny Jackson told the press that he did have some concerns, however, about the president's weight and sedentary lifestyle. "Never said 'take them out.' Made up by Dems".

"It's the opposite of what I campaigned for", Mr Trump told Reuters in an interview.

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the USA after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people briefed on the conversation. "Why don't we get more people from Norway?'" Durbin said.

The key message, the official said: Emphasize that the United States has a "deep respect" for people from Africa and that the USA relationship with any county is deeper than any one comment. "Why did Chuck Schumer and all of his colleagues come and beg Donald Trump for money?"
