US President Donald Trump and his Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev smile as they speak to the press at the White House.
"I'm telling you he did not use that word, George, and I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation", Perdue told host George Stephanopoulos. Asked several times what the workouts might consist of, he demurred, but said that Trump "would benefit from a diet that is lower in fat and carbohydrates" and an exercise regimen.
The president has also noted that he sleeps only about 4 to 5 hours per night, and Jackson confirmed that. Dr Jackson has worked in the White House since 2006 where he previously treated senior staff and cabinet members.
The doctor says he had "absolutely no concerns" about the 71-year-old president's cognitive abilities, but performed the screening because Trump asked him to do it.
But Senator Dick Durbin said the accusations were true and that Trump had used a language "full of hate, vile and racist" during the meeting.
Trump is borderline obese, according to his body mass index score.

News of Note-AT&T and Huawei, Sprint and SoftBank and more
Neither of the companies offered official statements, but AT&T did tell Reuters that it's yet to make a decision on 5G suppliers. AT&T has also been warned to avoid using Huawei hardware for their subsidiaries like Cricket Wireless.
"He has gone above and beyond what I would consider a requirement to demonstrate his cognitive abilities", Jackson said and added about the exam: "It does rule out the need to do any other cognitive assessment".
Sen. Lindsey Graham just spoke to reporters and laid into President Donald Trump and the White House for failing to broach a bipartisan deal on immigration reform and DACA with a government shutdown looming. And Jackson has upped Trump's dosage of Crestor, a cholesterol-lowering statin. The president is "more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part", his physician allowed.
Trump also plays frequent rounds of golf, which Jackson said contains a "certain amount" of exercise. "The answer to your question is that he has incredibly good genes, and it's just the way God made him".
Undergoing a physical is voluntary, and Trump can pick and choose what the public learns about his health.
Questions about Mr Trump's fitness for office flared last week after a new book - Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff - said that nearly all of his top staff and advisers believe he is mentally unwell. Trump further inflamed the debate earlier this month when he lashed out at his detractors on Twitter and claimed he is a "very stable genius" while touting his accomplishments.
The president is "very sharp" and "very articulate" in their conversations and does not repeat himself, he said. A senior GOP source familiar with the matter told CNN that instead of hearing the President say "shithole" during the meeting, some Republicans actually heard "shithouse".
Trump is now taking several types of daily medication, Jackson wrote, including aspirin; Rosuvastatin to lower cholesterol; Finasteride to aid in the prevention of male pattern hair loss; Ivermectin to treat rosaccea when needed; and a multivitamin product.
