A statement from former President Donald Trump’s physician has confirmed that he is in “excellent health” and will continue to lead an active lifestyle for many years. The note, which was posted on Trump’s Truth Social account, was released on the same day as Biden’s 81st birthday, making the physical and mental health of both presidents a major issue in the 2024 presidential race.
The note signed by Bruce Aronwald, an osteopath from New Jersey, revealed that Trump has lost weight through a better diet and daily exercise while maintaining a busy schedule. While the note did not provide additional details about Trump’s health, his physical exams were reportedly within normal range and his cognitive exams were described as exceptional. This is a departure from the note released in 2016 by Harold Bornstein, who indicated that Trump had written its contents himself.
In the 2016 case, Trump claimed to weigh 215 pounds (98 kg) and stand at 6 feet 3 inches (1.9 meters) tall. This information was released in relation to a criminal case stemming from Trump’s attempts to overturn his 2020 election defeat in Georgia, where he has pleaded not guilty in several cases. Despite this legal battle, it appears that Trump remains committed to maintaining his health and continuing an active lifestyle into the future.
