WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s overall health “is excellent” and he did “exceedingly well” on cognitive screening, the Navy doctor who performed Trump’s first medical checkup said Tuesday.

Ronny Jackson had issued a blanket declaration that Trump was in “excellent health” after last Friday’s exam, and promised to provide a fuller readout on Tuesday. He reported that 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.
