And Susan Hunt said that everyone is now lining up to be weighed by Ronny Jackson.

"Some people just have great genes", the doctor replied.

Ronny Jackson answers question about President Trump's health.

George Annas, the head of the Center for Health Law, Ethics and Human Rights at Boston University School of Public Health, said he expects the report from Trump's medical exam to be brief.

After Donald Trump's doctor revealed on Tuesday that the president's "overall health is excellent", many refused to believe that the fast-food loving president was anything but on the cusp of a diabetic shock.

While the test Trump took is meant to probe for cognitive decline or signs of alzheimer's, it is not a psychiatric exam.

The 71-year-old president performed "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening, which is not standard but was requested by Trump.

Moreover, Trump is taking Propecia for male-pattern hair loss; and Ambien to relieve temporary sleeplessness.

Mr Trump is considered overweight and borderline obese at 1.9m tall and 108 kg.

One reporter asked the White House physician how Trump can become as fit as Obama - who struggled to kick a smoking habit.

Gupta, who formerly served as an adviser to then-first lady Hillary Clinton during a White House fellowship, said Trump's calcium scores are "concerning".

Trump is also not alone in his lack of interest in exercise.

"The president does take some Ambien (a sleeping pill) on occasion" when he travels overseas, Jackson said, adding: "Like we all do".

He said there were "no concerns" about the president's cognitive ability.

The Montreal Cognitive Assessment consists of a series of short "brain-teasers" that assess a participant's attention span, memory, language, and similar cognitive functions.

White House doctor says President Trump is 'very healthy'
The 71-year-old president is known to eat junk food, and to avoid exercise beyond golf. "Some people have great genetics". Patients have to name some animals, repeat some phrases, draw a specific time on a clock, and copy a drawing of a cube.

His score suggests he has control of the basic faculties of his mind. "I found no reason whatsoever to think that the President has any issues whatsoever with his thought process".
