Aside from earning a flawless score on his cognitive test during his first formal medical exam as president, Donald Trump also stepped on a scale.

"The president's overall health is excellent", Dr. Ronny Jackson told reporters during an unusual briefing at the White House, days after completing the Trump's first physical examination as president.

"I think he will remain fit for duty for the remainder of this term and even the remainder of another term if he is elected", Jackson said. Trump, who is known to eat junk food and to avoid exercise beyond golf, is overweight.

Trump supporters and those closest to the president maintain that the numbers are real and people should get over it.

"He continues to enjoy the significant long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol", Jackson pointed out.

He speculated that Mr Trump requested the exam in an attempt to beat back the narrative of the past few weeks that he is mentally unfit for office.

While the presidential check-up is a routine practice, the briefing comes amid heightened questions of Mr. Trump's mental fitness.

Mr Trump's heart exam was normal, with regular rhythm and no abnormal sounds, which Dr Jackson said led him to conclude with confidence that Mr Trump "has a very strong and a very probable possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues".

The score of 30 out of 30 on the Montreal test answers one of the most dramatic claims from the president's critics: that he is suffering from dementia or some other form of cognitive impairment.

The doctor said he accidentally "dried up his secretions" by giving the President a dose of Sudafed.

Despite the diet and cholesterol concerns, Jackson stressed that Trump's "cardiac health is excellent". He added Trump does not wear dentures. And that is something Jackson is going to work with him to change. "He and his team took great care of all of us for many years".

After all, one's genes can only do so much.

"When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn - this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive", Gupta said.

"Luck is a huge part and it might not last", Murphy said. Jackson accused doctors who have tried to diagnose Trump from afar of performing "tabloid psychiatry". "What can I tell you?"

Reporters peppered Jackson with questions about his tweeting and television-watching habits and how much sleep he gets a night.

"I would say he sleeps four to five hours a night, and he's probably been that way his whole life". "He doesn't sleep much", he said.

Excellent may have been the word of the day for Jackson.

"I think I need a drink of water", he joked.
