White House Physician: Trump's Cognitive Exam Came Back

Meanwhile, the clamor over Trump's use of a vulgarity bled into a second week Tuesday and a Republican senator who was present for the original remark said the situation had become a "s***show".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Jackson will attend her briefing Tuesday to provide a more complete readout on Trump's physical health.

Trump said he was not following any special diet or exercise regimen for the campaign.

The questions include basic tasks such as counting backwards from seven, drawing a clock that reads 10 past 11, identifying certain animals and repeating back specific sets of words.

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

The fast-food-loving Trump praised Jackson, who has served as a physician to previous presidents, but seemed wary of taking the not-so-subtle suggestion to use the White House's exercise facilities.

"He has incredible genes and that's the way God made him".

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.

Trump has said Durbin misrepresented his comments. "Deals can't get made when there is no trust! Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military", Trump tweeted.

A century ago, there were nativists who railed against Irish, Italian and Eastern European immigration, claiming that unwashed hordes from poor countries were "mongrelizing" the nation. Trump announced past year that he will end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, unless lawmakers come up with a solution by March. Members of Congress from both parties are trying to strike a deal that Trump would support to extend that protection.

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat at Thursday's meeting, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said. I understand that. But I'll tell you this: "I stand by every word I said about what was said and what happened". Durbin this week said "any attempt to kill immigration reform probably has (White House senior adviser Stephen) Miller's fingerprints on it". Lindsey O. Graham, R-S.C., was at the infamous meeting with Trump and told others about his racist language.

The White House said Trump had no intention of apologizing.

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

Trump piled on Monday, accusing Durbin of misrepresenting what he said and of damaging prospects for a deal to protect young immigrants who were brought to the US illegally as children. Trump wasn't apologetic and denied he was racist, said the confidant, who wasn't authorized to disclose a private conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

U.S. Rep. Mia Love, a Republican from Utah and a child of immigrants from Haiti, expressed the central objections to Trump's comments very well.

Graham joked that at this point he is done with continuing resolutions because "there's four of 'em", referring to the fact they've done four in the last six months.

Nielsen said she did not believe Trump would have the authority to extend the March 5 deadline for the ending of the program.

Trump took office at age 70, making him the oldest incoming U.S. president. Trump has agreed to get rid of 4.5-6 kg of body fat in the next one year by combining diet, exercise and medication.

"A properly functioning immigration system promotes assimilation in all its forms", the official said.

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

If the allegation were true, she asked reporters, "Why did NBC give him a show for a decade on TV? Why did Chuck Schumer and all of his colleagues come and beg Donald Trump for money?"
