White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson on Tuesday gave detailed results from United States President Donald Trump’s first annual medical exam, explaining the president was in good health during a press briefing. 

“In summary, the president’s overall health is excellent,” Dr. Jackson stated, but explained that Trump “would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates.”

Jackson gave the weight of the president as 239 lbs, or roughly 108 kilograms.

At Trump’s height of 1.88 meters, this makes the U.S. president obese, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website’s BMI that scores him a 30.6 rating.

However, U.S. media pointed out that the president was one pound from the classification of being in the obese category.

In response to press inquiries, Jackson said that Trump asked the physician to run a Montreal Cognitive Assessment on him, even though the doctor had “absolutely no concerns about his cognitive ability.”

Jackson, also an admiral, said he believed Trump slurred his words once recently because he gave the president an over amount of Sudafed, with an ultrasound revealing nothing wrong.

The physician said that he would estimate that Trump sleeps some four to five hours a night, explaining it’s “probably one of the reasons he’s been successful.”

Jackson also served under former President Barack Obama.
