55 percent of Americans say Trump's mental fitness is a legitimate question

A White House doctor pronounced President Trump medically fit to serve as commander-in-chief on Tuesday - and added that he easily passed a voluntary cognitive assessment created to test his mental reflexes.

"He is the only doctor that has weighed in on this matter that has actually examined the president", Sanders said.

Trump has not clarified to aides what he said, but told reporters Sunday night in Florida that comments attributed to him "weren't made".

Trump has denied using that word. "He has incredible genes I just assume", Jackson said.

There is not much time to deal with the critical issue of resolving the status of those who were brought here illegally as young children.

The debate continued to play out Tuesday as Washington was gripped with uncertainty over whether the government would shut down at midnight Friday, when temporary government funding is set to run out, in the absence of a deal on immigration and other matters. Deals can't get made when there is no trust!

Trump, who has gained three pounds since his physical in 2016, takes a drug to reduce his cholesterol, and Jackson said he may increase the dosage The doctor added that Trump does not use tobacco or alcohol, one of the reasons he is in good health generally.

Trump has said Durbin misrepresented his comments.

Trump's demands for a DACA deal appeared relatively clear: protect DACA recipients; end "chain migration;" get rid of the visa lottery; fund the wall.

Trump lashed out last week at the United States judicial system as "broken and unfair" after a judge blocked his decision to scrap the program that has protected the so-called Dreamers from deportation since 2012, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Members of Congress from both parties are trying to strike a deal that Trump would support to extend that protection.

On Monday, Trump claimed Durbin is misquoting him.

The gathering featured more than a dozen top White House officials, discussing the state of American women with over 200 invited guests. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., termed an "s-storm" with his Oval Office remarks.

Pressed for details about last week's immigration meeting, Graham would not budge.

And with the midterm elections approaching, there are fresh fears among Republicans who were already anxious over the political climate going into November - and over Trump's unpredictable actions.

Graham, who arrived two hours and 30 minutes into the hearing, told her that Durbin is "a decent, honest man" and that Trump was the real problem. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, instead blaming the media for distorting his meaning, said the confidant, who wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Trump insisted afterward in a tweet that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". Forty percent said he is not racist, while 16 percent said they were unsure.

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

Trump took office at age 70, making him the oldest incoming US president.

Trump's body-which, like all of ours, is condemned to suffer the indignities of misshapen parts, as well as aging, decaying, and, eventually, dying-is perhaps the thing that is most tangibly at odds with the image he wishes to project. "And maybe for Mr. Trump himself to consider immigrants as contributors to advancing science, advancing our societies".
