Trump apparently requested that his presidential physician perform a cognitive exam on him during his annual physical exam. The exam used was the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which is used to test for Alzheimer’s and dementia. The President received a perfect score, indicating that he is free of dementia. This result contradicts some recent speculation. Though some have questioned the rigor of the test, it has done its job. It has armed Trump against attacks on his mental fitness, and made removal via the 25th amendment much less likely.
