President Donald Trump did "exceedingly well" on a cognitive examination during his annual physical, White House physician Admiral Ronny Jackson said Tuesday.

In the past, Trump had medical exams conducted by his personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, who memorably claimed in 2015, "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

Trump, the doctor said, asked for the cognitive test to answer his critics and attempt to quell questions about his mental abilities.

Despite what he said were concerns about Trump's weight, diet and exercise levels, Jackson declared the President in "excellent" health, which he predicted would hold up for the remainder of his term.

Trump has faced several questions about his mental fitness to be president.

Jackson said that after witnessing Trump charge through 14- and 16-hour days, the president's staff would be spent, but he would still be raring to go.

He disclosed that Trump himself volunteered for the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, said to be a well-respected test that can help detect mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer's disease. "We talked about diet and exercise a lot", Jackson said.

The doctor, who took questions on the president's health for almost an hour, said that he was not told to withhold any information regarding Trump's results.

Jackson even joked that if Trump had a healthier diet over the past two decades, he possibly could have lived to be 200 years old. "I don't know. Some people have great genes".

Jackson held an extraordinary news conference at the White House that lasted for about an hour.

"The President is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", said Jackson.

Jackson, the White House physician, said Tuesday that Trump scored a flawless 30 out of 30 on the test.

In answer to a reporter's question about the president's "mental fitness", Jackson stated that the president performed "exceedingly well" on his cognitive screening, achieving a ideal score. And Jackson seemed most impressed by Trump's cardiac health.

"He has gone above and beyond what I would consider a requirement to demonstrate his cognitive abilities", Jackson said.

Jackson said that Trump agreed to try and lose 10 to 15 pounds over the next year.

Other medication Trump takes includes low-dose Aspirin for heart health, some antibiotics for skin rosacea and Propecia for baldness.

When asked to weigh in on mental health professionals who have suggested President Trump is showing signs of dementia or other mental issues, Dr. Jackson called that "tabloid psychology".
