Donald Trump 'could have lived to 200 years old' if he ate fewer hamburgers, doctor says

Donald Trump 'could have lived to 200 years old' if he ate fewer hamburgers, doctor says Donald Trump has "incredible genes" and could have lived to 200-years-old if his diet had been better in recent years, the White House presidential physician said. Dr Ronny Jackson, who performed Mr Trump's first medical exam as president, declared him "fit for duty" physically and mentally. As well as a thorough physical Dr Jackson performed a "difficult" cognitive test and Mr Trump scored 30 out of 30. The doctor said: "He's very sharp, he's very articulate around me, I've no indication to be concerned about his thought process." Dr Jackson said he had not planned to do a cognitive test but Mr Trump asked him to, and he did "exceedingly well" on it. The doctor said: "If he had some kind of mental cognitive issue he would not have got 30 out of 30 on the test. He has no mental or cognitive issues." Donald Trump Credit: AP He said it was the first time a president had undergone such a test, and Mr Trump asked for it specifically so he could lay to rest recent speculation about his mental capability. In a recent book, Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff, White House aides were said to have questioned his state of mind, and Mr Trump responded by calling himself a "very stable genius". Last month, the president slurred his words while announcing a decision to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. Dr Jackson took responsibility for Mr Trump slurring his words during the speech, saying he had prescribed him Sudafed, a cold remedy, and that had dried up his mouth. Mr Trump's weight was 239 pounds. He had a Body Mass Index at the very top of the "overweight" range and just shy of "obese". Here is the release of President Donald Trump's medical exam by Dr. Ronny Jackson, on paper: https://t.co/kLR436GYM8pic.twitter.com/24zbLYQD0C— Lisa Feierman (@lisathefeierman) January 16, 2018 His resting heart rate was 68 beats per minute, and his blood pressure was 122/74. His total cholesterol was 223, which is higher than recommended, and had risen over the last year. Mr Trump takes a medication for his cholesterol, the doctor said. He also takes Propecia to combat male pattern hair loss. Dr Jackson said Mr Trump "could do with losing 10 or 15 pounds". He added: "We talked a lot about diet and exercise. He was more keen on the diet than exercise but we will do both." The physical part of the four-hour medical exam settled a long mystery over how tall Mr Trump is. He has claimed to be 6ft 3ins, while an old driving licence showed him as 6ft 2ins, leading to accusations he had exaggerated his height. Dr Jackson confirmed Mr Trump is 6ft 3ins. Asked how a 71-year-old man known to like hamburgers could be in "excellent" physical health, he said: "It's called genetics. Some people have great genes. "I told the president if he'd had better diet over the last 20 years he could have lived to 200 years old. The answer is he has incredibly good genes, it's just the way God made him. "He had great findings across the board but his cardiac health stood out. Hands down he is in the excellent range. "He continues to enjoy the significant long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol."


Ex-U.S. Navy officers face negligent homicide charges over ship collisions

Ex-U.S. Navy officers face negligent homicide charges over ship collisions Filing charges against the officers marks the Navy's latest effort to address the problems that led to collisions involving its warships in Asia, in which 17 sailors were killed. The Navy has already dismissed several senior officers, including the commander of the Seventh Fleet, as a result of the collisions. The commanding officer of the USS John S.

House Republicans mull funding extension; 'Dreamer' deal not set

House Republicans mull funding extension; 'Dreamer' deal not set By Richard Cowan and Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House Republicans considered on Tuesday a stopgap bill to fund the U.S. government through Feb. 16 to avert a shutdown, but the measure would not include Democrats' demands for protections for young people brought to the United States illegally as children. Partisan finger-pointing over immigration policy on Tuesday left Congress and the White House stumbling closer to a possible federal government shutdown by the end of the week. Republicans who control Congress are expected to try to push another stopgap funding bill and get it to President Donald Trump's desk before a midnight Friday deadline when existing money for federal agencies expires.


Police still baffled by discovery of 13 starved, abused siblings

Police still baffled by discovery of 13 starved, abused siblings By Alan Devall and Bob Mezan PERRIS, Calif. (Reuters) - Police said on Tuesday they were still seeking answers after finding 13 siblings starving in their parents' squalid Southern California home, some of them chained to beds under "horrific" conditions in an otherwise ordinary suburb. "I wish I could come to you today with information that would explain why this happened," said Captain Greg Fellows of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. "But we do need to acknowledge the courage of the young girl who escaped from that residence to bring attention so they could get the help they so needed." The parents, 57-year-old David Allen Turpin and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were arrested at their darkened, foul-smelling house after the girl's 12 siblings were found there.

U.S. House panel to hold hearing on emergency alerts after Hawaii error

U.S. House panel to hold hearing on emergency alerts after Hawaii error A U.S. House of Representatives panel said on Tuesday it planned a hearing to review a false missile alert sent in Hawaii over the weekend that stirred panic and anger in the Pacific island state. The House Energy and Commerce Committee said in a statement that the hearing by one of its subcommittees would discuss safety communications and receive an update from the Federal Communications Commission "on its investigation into the recent false emergency alert event in Hawaii." Authorities blamed human error on the false alarm in Hawaii that was not corrected for 38 minutes. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said on Sunday that Hawaii apparently did not have adequate safeguards in place and that government officials must work to prevent future incidents.

U.S. government shutdown looms amid immigration battle (Note language that may offend some readers) By Richard Cowan and Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Partisan finger-pointing over immigration policy on Tuesday left the U.S. Congress and the White House stumbling closer to a possible federal government shutdown by the end of the week, although Wall Street held out hopes for a deal to prevent that.

On policy, Trump favors one side of red-blue divide

On policy, Trump favors one side of red-blue divide President Trump’s major policy moves over the course of his first year in office have had a common denominator: They either overtly favor his base of support – the roughly one-third of voters who solidly back him – or they appear to penalize those states that vote Democratic. The most striking example is tax reform, which struck a blow against blue-state Americans who tend to pay high state and local taxes, or SALT. Other recent policy moves also appear to have an anti-blue tilt.
