CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta asked Physician to the President Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson if he was withholding negative information about the president’s health from reporters during Tuesday’s press briefing.
Acosta, who has previously questioned Trump’s mental state, seemed surprised that the president’s physical did not produce any negative results.
“One question,” Acosta posed to Jackon. “There isn’t anything that’s part of the president’s health records or his overall physical fitness or any medications that he’s taking that you’re not permitted to tell us? Is there anything you’re keeping from us for privacy reasons?”
Jackson assured Acosta that there was no information about Trump’s health being withheld, negative or otherwise.
“I can promise there is nothing that I am withholding from you. I can tell you, I’ve done the last four or five of these,” Jackson replied. “I’ve been involved in probably the last six or seven of these and this is hands down more information that has been put forth by any other assessment to date.”
