2018-01-16T21:33:38Z

President Donald Trump asked that a cognitive test be included as part of his first physical exam. Trump's physician - Navy doctor Ronny Jackson - says the president achieved a perfect score on the test, which was included in last Friday's medical checkup. Jackson says Trump's 30 out of 30 score means there's no indication that Trump has any cognitive issues.
