White House doctor Ronny Jackson went in front of the media to discuss Donald Trump's health-revealing that the 71-year-old President's "overall health is excellent".

"A cognitive screening exam using the Montreal Cognitive Assessment was normal, with a score of 30 over 30", he said.

"So it turns out, according to the official White House doctor, Trump is completely sane, which makes me more anxious because that means he's doing all of this s- on goal?!" he said. "So the president has heart disease".

He said Trump had healthy cardiac results according to a CT scan and blood tests, though he took Crestor to lower his cholesterol. That medication can also be used to treat prostate issues at higher doses.

"The president has heart disease", the neurosurgeon, who has never examined Mr. Trump, declared on "New Day" Wednesday, adding that the president needs a medical plan to prevent a major heart problem in the near future. Rosacea is a condition that causes redness on the face.

Jackson confirmed that there is "no indication whatsoever that the President has cognitive issues".

The 30-point test takes about 10 minutes and asks the patient to perform a simple batch of memory and mental tasks. "So yes, I have great respect for people who - great respect for this doctor, but if that's what 6-foot-3, 239 pounds looks like, that's a shock to me".

He said the three-hour examination of Trump conducted by military doctors on Friday had gone "exceptionally well".

"He's more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part but we're going to do both", Jackson said.

Jackson declined during his question and answer session to compare Trump's health to that of other presidents, and he described Trump as in good health outside of needing to lose weight and to exercise.

Yes. Trump has a slightly elevated LDL count of 143, which is a kind of cholesterol called a low-density lipoprotein.

He achieved a flawless score of 30 out of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (Moca), a test that screens for illnesses such as Alzheimer's and dementia (but does not assess fitness to lead). Yes, he certainly has coronary artery disease because calcium is present.

The concerns over his weight aside, Jackson said Trump was in excellent health, which he ascribed to good genetics and a lifelong avoidance of tobacco and alcohol.
