For nearly an hour on Tuesday, the White House press corps stooped to a new low of embarrassment and clownishly liberal behavior, lobbing over a dozen questions at Navy Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson to insinuate that President Trump must be mentally ill to the point of Alzheimer's Disease.
Dr. Eric Topol, a cardiologist at the Scripps Research Institute, disputed that rosy assessment.
Many Democrats have said they will not vote for spending legislation to keep the federal government funded past a Friday deadline without an immigration deal, and Republicans will need at least some Democratic votes to pass the funding extension in the Senate.
"What I was struck with frankly, as I'm sure you were as well, was just the general profanity used in the room by nearly everyone". "I want them to come in from everywhere - everywhere", Trump told reporters on Tuesday, in a brief response to a question surrounding the controversy about his alleged statements denouncing immigrants from "shithole countries".
Emerging from lunch with the Republican caucus, Graham said he told his colleagues he won't be voting for the CR. "That is completely contradicted".
Trump said he thinks a deal on immigration is still possible.
Jackson said that there is no reason Trump wouldn't be able to complete his first term healthwise, in addition to a second term if re-elected.
Jackson says Trump is healthy and should remain so for the remainder of his presidency.
But a lot of people find it is easier to stir up fears and rage against immigrants from certain countries without regard for such details as facts.
"We need a leader, and you got here by being a street fighter".
Jackson said that Trump asked him to conduct a cognitive test on him, even though it was not required by law. "Technically, he has nonclinical coronary atherosclerosis", Jackson told reporters.
"All clinical data indicates that the president is now very healthy, and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency. the presidents overall health is excellent", said Navy Rear Adm Dr Ronny Jackson, who shared the results of Trumps health report.
Jackson said Trump's 30 out of 30 score means there's no indication that Trump has any cognitive issues. Trump has no heart disease. While presidents aren't required to have a physical or release the results, it has become standard practice.
Topol disagreed with Gupta about the calcium test, which measures the amount of plaque containing calcium in a person's blood.
Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the US after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people briefed on the conversation.
"It's really an honour for me", said Nasreddine, now affiliated with McGill and Sherbrooke universities in Quebec.
At his weight and height, the president is borderline obese.
"I'm honored to stand here with women across the administration", he said, mentioning his daughter, Ivanka, and the women who were "front and center" on the tax bill, which he said has shown "incredible" success. "Are you looking at dementia-like symptoms?" White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said at the time that the president was simply thirsty, calling questions about his health "ridiculous".
Trump's predecessors, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican George W. Bush, were fitness enthusiasts, but Trump has no daily workout routine.
