Trump Completes His First Physical Exam As President, Doctor Claims He\'s In \'excellent Health\'

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Latest on President Donald Trump's health (all times local):

4:15 p.m.

President Donald Trump performed "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening during his recent physical examination.

That's according to his White House physician, navy doctor Ronny Jackson.

The doctor says he had "absolutely no concerns" about the 71-year-old president's cognitive abilities, but performed the screening because Trump asked him to do it.

Jackson says Trump's overall health "is excellent." Jackson is providing a more detailed readout Tuesday following Trump's first physical last Friday at the Walter Reed military hospital.

President Donald Trump's doctor says he's confident that Trump has a "very strong and a very probable possibility" of completing his presidency "with no medical issues."

Navy doctor Ronny Jackson says his assessment is based on Trump's cardiac assessment.

Trump had his first physical last Friday. Jackson says Trump's heart exam was normal, with regular rhythm and no abnormal sounds.

Trump also has no heart disease and no family history of it.

Jackson says that based on the clinical information he has on Trump and his year of observing the president, "I feel very confident that he has a very strong and a very probable possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues.

Trump took office at age 70, making him the oldest incoming U.S. president.

President Donald Trump's overall health "is excellent" and he did "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening.

That's according to his White House physician, Navy doctor Ronny Jackson.

Jackson is providing a more detailed readout Tuesday following Trump's first physical last Friday at the Walter Reed military hospital.

Jackson reports that the 6-foot-3 president weighed in at 239 pounds -- three pounds heavier than he was in September 2016.

Trump's blood pressure was 122 over 74, and his total cholesterol was 223, which is higher than recommended.

Trump was 70 when he took office, making him the oldest person ever elected to the nation's highest office.

Jackson says Trump is healthy and should remain so for the remainder of his presidency.

7:30 a.m.

A fuller readout of President Donald Trump's health following his first medical check-up is expected later Tuesday.

Trump's White House physician - Navy doctor Ronny Jackson - declared Trump to be in "excellent health" following last Friday's exam at the Walter Reed military hospital in Maryland.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Jackson will attend her briefing Tuesday to provide a more complete readout on Trump's physical health.

Not expected are any conclusions about Trump's mental acuity. Questions about Trump's mental fitness have been raised following comments attributed to some of his close advisers in a new book, and his recent slurring of words on national TV.

Presidents aren't required to get a checkup, but modern presidents do so regularly and release a doctor's report on the findings.
