President Donald Trump performed "exceedingly well" on a surprise cognitive screening test administered last week, his doctor said Tuesday, as the White House continued to bat back questions about the president's mental fitness for office.Navy doctor Ronny Jackson, who administered Trump's first presidential physical last week, said Trump received a perfect score on a test designed to detect early signs of memory loss and other mild cognitive impairment. He also reported the 6-foot-3 president weighed in at 239 pounds -- three pounds heavier than he was in September 2016, the last time Trump revealed his weight to the public. Jackson said Trump personally requested the test as he continues to face questions about his mental acuity for office.But the 71-year-old president performed "exceedingly well" on the test, Jackson said, receiving a perfect score.Jackson accused doctors who have tried to diagnose Trump from afar of performing "tabloid psychiatry".Still, Jackson said Trump acknowledged he'd be healthier if he lost a few pounds by exercising more and eating better. Jackson said Trump has avoided some big heart risks -- he's never smoked and isn't diabetic -- and has no family history of heart problems.
