President Trump’s mental acuity again became a hot button topic this week after the president boasted acing what many called an “easy” cognitive test.
“If you’re in the office of the presidency, we have to be sharp,” President Trump told Fox News medical correspondent, Dr. Marc Siegel, on Wednesday. “It was 30 or 35 questions. The first questions are very easy, the last questions are much more difficult.”
Trump said he requested the test “a little less than a year ago” to silence critics who have repeatedly called his mental fitness into question.
Trump cited as one of the “more difficult” questions one that required him to repeat a set of words in the correct order.
