President Trump 'fit for duty,' has no cognitive issues: White House doctor

Donald Trump insists he is 'not racist' in wake of derogatory comments

Trump says program to protect 'Dreamers' is 'probably dead'

The White House doctor's assertion that President Trump is in "excellent health" has raised the eyebrows of many who remain skeptical of the medical assessment.

"Had the other side gotten in, the market would have gone down 50% from where it was", Trump said.

During a press conference Tuesday, the doctor was asked how the president could possibly be healthy with a diet loaded with fast food and up to 12 Diet Cokes a day.

A Pilates instructor, Ms. Evans said that she would recommend the classes to Mr. Trump to strengthen his core - yet another asset when improving a golf game.

Trump "was watching and liked it", an official said after the briefing.

"We do know that the president is at an unhealthy weight, and it's splitting hairs whether he is overweight or obese", said Marian Neuhouser, past president of the American Society of Nutrition and a professor at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle.

There is internal debate in the West Wing over whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse".

The man who heads up the most powerful country in the world, Donald Trump, underwent a medical examination recently which included a test devised by a Montreal doctor in the mid 1990s.

The person believes the discrepancy may be why some Republican senators are denying having heard the president say "shithole". "He has incredibly good genes, and it's just the way God made him".

Though the movement has affected the sports, entertainment and political worlds, it has largely spared the White House, even though at least 15 women have come forward with a wide range of accusations against Trump, ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women. There appears to be little difference in meaning between the two words.

The two senators are on opposite sides of a contentious debate involving a spending bill, which Schumer has vowed to block. After touting efforts to rebuild the military, Trump said, "We need that now nearly more than at in any time in the past".

Asked by CNN's Jim Acosta whether he said he wanted more people to come to the United States from Norway, Trump said, "We want them to come in from everywhere, everywhere".

"This was a bit of a snapshot in time", she said.

Left to its own devices, the State Department came up with its own talking points to be used by USA missions in Africa working to stem the damage, said a US official, who wasn't authorized to disclose internal deliberations and demanded anonymity. Members of Congress from both parties are trying to strike a deal that Trump would support to extend that protection.

In a hearing Tuesday, Graham said Trump expressed openness to an immigration deal, only to reject it hours later.

The physician also addressed an episode in December 2017 when the president appeared to slur his speech at a public event and said he had given Trump medication that may have resulted in slurred speech.

A nutritionist has been brought into the White House kitchens to consult with the chefs there on ways to limit Trump's intake of calories, including by cutting fats and carbohydrates.

It's nearly as if there's two White Houses.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, one of the six senators in the meeting with Trump on Thursday, supported Durbin's account. He said he talks to Trump daily, and didn't feel he even needed the test. I think immigrants can be proud that they are contributing.

According to Jackson, Trump's heart exam was normal, with regular rhythm and no abnormal sounds.
