CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta questioned Physician to the President Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson if he was reserving negative information about the president’s health from journalists during Tuesday’s press conference.

Acosta, who has previously challenged President Donald Trump’s mental state, seemed shocked that the president’s examination did not provide 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.”
