Jackson's target for Trump is to lose 10 to 15 pounds over the next year.

When asked if he believed the President was "fit for duty", Jackson said: "Absolutely, he's fit for duty". "He's eating what the [White House] chefs are cooking for him and they're cooking a much healthier diet for him now".

"Can you explain to me how a guy who eats McDonald's and fried chicken and all the Diet Cokes and who never exercises is in as good of shape as you say he's in?" Jackson said that Trump now does not exercise regularly.

"His score is 133 and he is 71 years of age, which puts him in the 46 percentile", said cardiologist Dr. Rachel Bond of Lenox Hill Hospital in NY.

On Tuesday (Jan 16), a White House doctor confirmed Trump is medically fit to serve as commander-in-chief, Trump also passed a voluntary cognitive assessment, which was meant to test his mental reflexes, with ease.

The White House doctor announced today that Trump was administered the Montreal cognitive test and aced it with a score of 30 on 30. Additionally, the President had an echocardiogram of his heart, as well as a stress test, both described as normal.

"The president is mentally very sharp, very intact".

The president takes a cholesterol-lowering drug called rosuvastatin, and because his cholesterol level is a little high, Jackson said, the dosage of this medication will be increased. Jackson said he would increase that dose in an effort to get Trump's so-called "bad" cholesterol, or LDL level, below 120; it now is 143. Some people have just great genes.

For context, adults aged 65 and up are recommended to get between seven and eight hours of sleep, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

"One thing that really stands out to me is his cardiac health", Jackson said, adding that based on objective data, the president is far above average for his age. "It's just the way he's wired".

The more obvious reason for Trump's use of Crestor, however, is his cholesterol.

"He has a lot of energy, a lot of energy and a lot of stamina", Jackson said.

Trump's doctor spoke yesterday as he broke the silence on President's health his diet.

"I've got to know him pretty well".

Dr. Ronny Jackson, the doctor for Barack Obama, George W. Bush and now Donald Trump, says the president's overall health is "excellent".
