Former President Donald Trump recently posted a doctor’s letter stating that he is in “excellent health” and has lost weight thanks to “daily physical activity.” It also says his cognitive health is “exceptional” via Media ite.
On Monday, Trump posted the letter from New Jersey physician Bruce Aronwald on his Truth Social account. The doctor said he examined the former president on Sept. 13, his letter is dated Nov. 20, 2023, which just so happens to be President Joe Biden’s 81st birthday. Biden is refraining from public birthday celebrations because he “doesn’t want to call attention” to his age.
Much has been made of Biden’s age, even though he is just four years older than Trump, who has four more criminal indictments.
The letter says:
“I have been President Donald J. Trump’s personal physician since 2021. During this time, I have conducted several comprehensive examinations, the most recent being September 13, 2023, and have supervised specialist consultations along with ancillary testing for screening and preventative health maintenance.
I am pleased to report that President Trump’s overall health is excellent. His physical exams were well within the normal range and his cognitive exams were exceptional. In addition, his most recent extensive laboratory analysis remains well within normal limits and was even more favorable than prior testing in some of the most significant parameters, most likely secondary to weight reduction.
Cardiovascular studies are all normal and cancer screening tests are all negative. President Trump has reduced his weight through an improved diet and continued daily physical activity, while maintaining a rigorous schedule. It is my opinion that President Trump is currently in excellent health, and with his continued interest in preventative health monitoring and maintenance, he will continue to enjoy a healthy active lifestyle for years to come.”
Trump is fond of touting his medical assessments. In 2020, he famously boasted of acing a cognitive exam in which he had to repeat the words, “person, woman, man, camera, T.V.”
“They said nobody gets it in order, it’s actually not that easy,” Trump said at the time. “But for me it was easy. And that’s not an easy question.”
Trump is the runaway frontrunner to win the Republican nomination for president. He currently faces 91 criminal charges in four jurisdictions. Two of the cases stem from his attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election result, which he falsely claims was rigged against him.
