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".

Trump's mental fitness for the job had come under intense scrutiny after a controversial, best-selling book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", portrayed him as childlike and mercurial.

The test was designed as a rapid screening tool for mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a clinical state that in most cases advances to become dementia. Sample questions include asking the patient to draw a clockface, putting in all of the numbers and setting the clock hands to a specific time.

What the Montreal test does not do is assess psychiatric fitness - and Trump did not undergo a psychiatric evaluation, according to his doctor.

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.

Amidst allegations from his opponents and some physicians about the status of his mental health, Jackson said that Trump asked him to conduct a test on him in this regard, even though it was not required by law.
