Donald Trump is expected to remain physically fit for the duration of his presidency and has "no cognitive issues whatsoever," according to full results from his first medical examination released Tuesday.
Trump's critics have openly questioned his mental health, and an explosive book on his presidency published earlier this month described aides as having doubts about his fitness for office.
"All data indicates the president is healthy and will remain so for the duration of his presidency," doctor Ronny Jackson told a White House briefing following last week's physical Antonio Valencia Jersey UK , which determined the 71-year-old to be in "excellent" health.
"He has incredible genes and that's the way God made him."
Jackson said Trump, who has recently faced a swirl of speculation about his mental fitness, had himself requested a cognitive test in which he performed "exceedingly well."
"I think he saw doing the physical as an opportunity to put some of that to rest," Jackson said.
"And I think he wasn't the least bit concerned that he had anything to hide."
The screening was carried out using a test called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment Luke Shaw Jersey UK , on which Trump scored 3030, Jackson said.

Trump will be making some changes to his diet and exercise in an effort to lose weight.
"I think a reasonable goal over the next year or so is to lose 10 to 15 pounds. We talked about diet and exercise a lot. He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part, but we're gonna do both," said Jackson.
"There's a gym upstairs and we'll get that set up to his specifications and we'll see how that goes."

"They all say he is like a child. And what they mean by that is he has a need for immediate gratification. It's all about him," said Wolff.
Trump described the book as "full of lies Ashley Young Jersey UK ," and described himself as "a very stable genius."
