Amid growing concerns about his health, Donald Trump has released a note on Monday stating that he is in “excellent health” and plans to maintain a healthy lifestyle for many years. The note, which was posted on Trump’s Truth Social account, was released on the same day as Joe Biden’s 81st birthday.
According to the note, Trump has lost weight through improved diet and daily exercise while still maintaining a busy schedule. Dr. Bruce Aronwald, an osteopath from New Jersey, signed the note but did not provide additional details about Trump’s health.
Trump’s physical exams were reported to be within normal range and his cognitive exams were described as exceptional. This new note comes from a different doctor than the one who produced a similar note in 2016 when Harold Bornstein indicated that Trump had dictated its contents. In that case, Trump weighed 215 pounds (98 kg) and was 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.
The physical and mental health of both President Biden and Donald Trump have become key issues in the ongoing presidential race for 2024 due to Biden’s age and Trump’s continued presence as a dominant force in the Republican party.
