That type of transparency is a shift for Trump, who has been unwilling to disclose information that candidates and presidents typically reveal, such as his tax returns.

"I'm 6'3" and have been losing weight for over [a] year (82lbs lost so far).there is no way Trump is 239 lbs and no way he has only gained 3 pounds since this 2016 report", said Paul Leddy. "He isn't. I think that's one of the reasons the American people love him".

Jackson said Trump himself had requested to sit the test after questions about his mental health.

Jackson credited the results to genetics. "He has incredible genes I just assume", Jackson said.

"I think a reasonable goal over the next year or so is to lose 10 or 15 pounds", Jackson said.
