What is the Montreal Cognitive Assessment test?

The White House chefs, Jackson said, are now cooking for him a much healthier diet.

Ronny Jackson answers question about President Trump's health. He has fired the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, launched tirades against the media, failed to push through healthcare reform and has escalated his rhetoric surrounding North Korea.

The sequel to President Donald Trump's first year in office is opening with the lead player hamstrung by a government shutdown and hunkering down amid investigations and crises.

"He is the only doctor that has weighed in on this matter that has actually examined the president", Sanders said.

The 10-minute test, known as the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, or MoCA, was administered at the president's request, according to his physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson.

Ranit Mishori, an attending physician at Georgetown University-Providence Hospital in Washington, said Trump received more screening and diagnostic tests than are generally recommended for someone at his age and with his medical history.

Dr. Ronald Petersen, an Alzheimer's expert at the prestigious Mayo Clinic, said he could not comment specifically on the president's cognitive health.

"He had great findings across the board", but the thing that is most outstanding is his cardiac health, according to Jackson, who was quizzed about the president's fitness from head to toe.

Jackson wrote in Obama's 2016 physical results that Obama was "committed to a healthy lifestyle", but said this week that Trump's diet and exercise regimens need some adjustments.

Dr Jackson told White House reporters the USA president was given the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, also known as MOCA, and aced it.

"Most of us could lose a couple of pounds", he said, before eyeing the reporters in the room and pronouncing them in "pretty good shape". All of the cardiologists interviewed said that would be essential in trying to control Trump's risk of a heart attack, though several said they wondered whether Trump was regularly taking his medicine as prescribed. Tests have shown he has high cholesterol and there's evidence of heart disease, but Jackson said tests show his heart is functioning well.

If you wonder just what's involved in the test, here's the opportunity to take the same one the President took. "I get more exercise than people think".

Like Trump, Obama also suffered from high cholesterol. I mean, I'm strong, physically, ' he said.

"It's called genetics. I don't know".

However, when it comes to Trump, "he just gets up and starts a new day, and that helps him with his stress level".

"He has a history of elevated cholesterol, and is now on a low dose of Crestor".
