In a bid to clear up any doubts about his health, former President Donald Trump’s campaign on Monday released a letter from his doctor, Dr. Bruce Aronwald, stating that the president is in “excellent” health and that his cognitive exams were “exceptional.” The letter was written by Aronwald, who describes himself as Trump’s personal physician since 2021.
This announcement comes after Trump, 77, made some verbal slips that brought his age to the forefront. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Sunday that the presidency is not a job for someone pushing 80 as he sought to contrast his youth with Trump and President Joe Biden, who turned 81 on Monday.
Aronwald’s letter states that Trump’s most recent “comprehensive examination” was September 13, 2023 and that his cardiovascular studies are all normal and cancer screening tests were negative. However, the letter does not provide information about the types of tests that Trump took or their results. In 2015, Trump’s then-campaign released a similar letter written by Dr. Harold Bornstein, who later said that Trump dictated the letter to him.
During his tenure in the White House, Trump received a glowing bill of health from Dr. Ronny Jackson, the then-presidential physician. Jackson now serves as a congressman and one of Trump’s staunchest supporters gushed about the then-president’s health during a briefing to the White House press corps in January 2018. According to FEC filings, Aronwald donated to Chris Christie’s 2015 presidential campaign.
It remains unclear what specific health concerns have been raised about Trump recently and why he felt compelled to release this note from his doctor at this time.
Overall it seems like there is no new information provided in this article other than confirming what we already know about trump’s previous medical checkup and Dr aronwald being his personal physician since 2021
