Trump’s doctor insists his health is ‘excellent’ after verbal errors

Donald Trump’s doctor released a flattering letter Monday saying the former president’s health is “excellent” and that he has recently lost a few pounds thanks to “an improved diet and continued daily physical activity.”

Dr. Bruce Aronwald, who describes himself as Trump’s personal physician since 2021, added that Trump, 77, was “exceptional” in his cognitive exams. The details, however, remained vague.

The unexpected letter posted by Trump on Truth Social follows a series of verbal slip-ups by Trump, in which he appeared to confuse Joe Biden with Barack Obama several times this fall and mixed up the names of foreign leaders. . He also mixed up the city and state he was in during a campaign speech last month, having the correct location whispered in his ear.

These errors have brought Trump’s age to the forefront as he seeks to return to the White House, and his Republican opponents have seized on these errors – much like how Trump criticized Biden’s age, who turned 81 on Monday.

The latest shot at Trump came Sunday from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who told CNN that being president is “not a job for someone approaching 80.”

Donald Trump shared the letter detailing his condition in a post Monday on Truth Social.

Aronwald’s letter lists September 13 as the day a check was carried out, more than two months ago. He doesn’t list details, such as weight, blood pressure, cholesterol levels or prescription medications he takes.

Aronwald asserted that Trump’s health should not be an issue anytime soon thanks to “his continued interest in preventative health monitoring and maintenance.”

The doctor added that Trump’s recent cardiovascular studies were normal and his cancer screening tests were negative.

Issuing vague health reports has long been the norm for Trump. Little is known about his medical history, which he has largely kept secret despite decades in the public spotlight.

The biggest glimpse the public got into Trump’s health came during his time at the White House, which revealed that he weighed 236 pounds in 2016 and was taking Crestor for high cholesterol and aspirin to prevent heart attacks in 2017. He will be 78 years old. in June.
