Trump, who has an affinity for fast food, said he'd be willing to work on the food aspect.

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".

Jackson said he has "no indication whatsoever that he has any cognitive issues".

"The president is mentally very sharp, very intact", Jackson said. "I find no reason whatsoever to think that the president has any issues whatever with his thought process".

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham lashed out at President Donald Trump's staff over the debate on immigration reform.

"He would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates", Jackson told reporters at the White House.

Major League Baseball star Roy Halladay died from blunt force trauma, drowning
Halladay was piloting his own private plane when it plunged into the Mexican Gulf past year . During his 16-year career, Halladay finished with a 203-105 record with a 3.38 ERA.

Without explicitly denying using the vulgarity, Mr Trump lashed out at Mr Durbin, who said the president uttered it several times during the meeting. Jackson is providing a more detailed readout Tuesday following Trump's first physical last Friday at the Walter Reed military hospital.

Dr Jackson said he had every confidence that the president "has a very strong and a very probable possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues". "I've told him since and I want to say it again publicly, I respect him so much for speaking out". The White House has faced a barrage of questions over his contradictory messages on key policies and an incident last month where he slurred some words while giving a speech.

Trump also has no heart disease and no family history of it. "He has incredibly good genes and that's just the way God made him".

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

Jackson revealed the President's heart health was "excellent" for a man of his age, while a echocardiogram proved the muscular pumping chamber of his heart had been operating normally.

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

Another was a dispute over port security equipment involving a company Melgen owned in the Dominican Republic. Walls declared a mistrial after individually interviewing members of the jury when it remained deadlocked.

The president's weight is 3 pounds higher than it was during the campaign in September 2016, according to a letter Trump released from his personal physician in New York, Harold N. Bornstein. His blood pressure was 122/74, within normal bounds, and his cholesterol was on the high side, Jackson said.

When he was running for office, Trump released a glowing report from his personal physician in NY, who said Trump would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

Dr Jackson said he would increase that dose in an effort to get Mr Trump's so-called "bad" cholesterol, or LDL level, below 120; it now is 143.

Donald Trump has aced a test on his mental health - likely putting to rest days of Washington political gossip. "I'll just say, what Senator Durbin has portrayed is a misportrayal", the Arkansas senator told Little Rock radio station KARN on Tuesday.

Not expected are any conclusions about Trump's mental acuity.

Underscoring the president's immigration demands, the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security released a joint report Tuesday morning arguing that a visa system overhaul was needed as a matter of national security, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, also championed the president's wishes in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
