Former President Donald Trump’s campaign on Monday released a letter from his doctor, stating that he is in “excellent” health and that his cognitive exams were “exceptional.”
The letter, written by Dr. Bruce Aronwald, describes himself as “Trump’s personal physician since 2023” and comes after Trump, 77, has made verbal slips that brought his age to the forefront. According to the letter, Trump’s most recent “comprehensive examination” was September 13, 2023 and his cardiovascular studies are all normal. He also had negative cancer screening tests and reduced his weight.
However, the letter does not include information about the types of tests that Trump took or what the results were. It doesn’t even include basic information that Trump’s physicians have shared in the past such as his height and weight, cholesterol level or blood pressure. The letter only states that Trump is healthy and fit for office. In contrast with this statement Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Sunday that presidency is “not a job for somebody that is pushing 80,” trying to contrast DeSantis youth relative to Trump and President Joe Biden who turned 81 on Monday.
