In a statement released on Monday, former President Donald Trump’s physician announced that the former leader is in “excellent health” and will continue to enjoy an active lifestyle for many years. The announcement comes as the physical and mental health of both Trump and Democratic President Joe Biden has become a major issue in the 2024 presidential race, with Biden’s 81st birthday and Trump’s lead in the Republican nominating contest.
The note, which was posted on Trump’s Truth Social account, was signed by Bruce Aronwald, an osteopath from New Jersey. According to the note, Trump has lost weight through improved diet and daily exercise while maintaining a busy schedule. However, it did not provide any additional details about his health status.
Trump’s physical examinations were reportedly within normal range, and his cognitive examinations were described as exceptional. This note was issued by a different doctor than the one who produced a similar note in 2016. In that case, Trump’s physician, Harold Bornstein, stated that the document was dictated by Trump himself.
In the 2016 statement, Trump disclosed that he weighed 215 pounds (98 kg) and was 6 feet 3 inches (1.9 meters) tall. This information came out during a wide-ranging criminal investigation into Trump’s attempts to overturn his 2020 election defeat in Georgia, where he has pleaded not guilty in several criminal cases.
