In an interview with Dr. Marc Siegel on Fox News, President Trump describes some of the questions on a cognitive assessment he says he took.
DONALD TRUMP: I said to the doctor-- it was Dr. Ronny Jackson. I said, is there some kind of a test, an acuity test? And he said there actually is, and he named it, whatever it might be. And it was 30 or 35 questions. The first questions are very easy. The last questions are much more difficult, like a memory question.
It's like you'll go person, woman, man, camera, TV. So they say, could you repeat that? So I said yeah. Said person, woman, man, camera, TV. OK, that's very good. If you get it in order, you get extra points. If you're-- OK.
Now he's asking you other questions-- other questions. And then 10 minutes-- 15, 20 minutes later he'll say, remember the first question-- not the first but the 10th question? Give us that again. Can you do that again? And you go person, woman, man, camera, TV. If you get it in order, you get extra points.
They said nobody gets it in order. It's actually not that easy, but for me, it was easy. And that's not an easy question. In other words, they ask do you-- they give you five names, and you have to repeat them, and that's OK. If you repeat them out of order, that's OK. But, you know, it's not as good.
But then when you go back about 20, 25 minutes later and they say go back to that question-- they don't tell you this. Go back to that question and repeat them. Can you do it? And you go person, woman, man, camera, TV.
They say, that's amazing. How did you do that? I do it because I have, like, a good memory, because I'm cognitively there.
