Trump’s doctor praises the 77-year-old’s health on Biden’s 81st birthday

Former President Donald Trump, 77, is in “excellent health,” according to a report his doctor released on the day President Joe Biden turned 81.

That’s what Dr. said. Bruce Aronwald, a New Jersey-based doctor who has been Trump’s personal physician since 2021, in a letter Approved from the Trump campaign on Monday that he was “pleased to report this.” [former] President Trump’s overall health is excellent.”

Meanwhile, Biden celebrated his 81st birthday amid continued speculation about his health and cognitive status. Despite the speculation and the fact that Biden is the oldest person ever to serve as president, there is no evidence that he suffers from any serious health problems.

Trump’s doctor said in Monday’s letter that the former president had undergone “multiple comprehensive examinations” and “specialist medical consultations,” with the most recent exam being conducted on September 13.

Aronwald highlighted the “extraordinary” results of unspecified “cognitive tests.” Trump previously boasted that he had aced a Montreal Cognitive Assessment test, a simple screening tool for mild cognitive problems, and frequently questioned the current president’s mental and physical fitness.

“His physical exams were within normal limits and his cognitive exams were exceptional,” Aronwald wrote. “The most recent comprehensive laboratory analyzes remain well within normal limits and were even more favorable than previous tests for some of the key parameters, most likely due to weight loss.”

Although the letter does not contain Trump’s weight, height or other detailed information, Aronwald wrote that the former president lost weight due to “improved diet” and “daily physical activity.”

“Cardiovascular exams are all normal and cancer screening tests are all negative,” Aronwald wrote. “[Former] President Trump has reduced his weight through improved diet and continued daily physical activity while maintaining a strict schedule. In my opinion, President Trump is in excellent health right now.”

The doctor further predicted that the ex-president will “continue to lead a healthy, active lifestyle for years to come” due to his continued interest in preventative health monitoring and maintenance.

Further details about the type of tests Trump underwent or the specialists he visited are unclear. Since the last audit reportedly took place over two months ago, it is also unclear why the report was released on Monday.

Newsweek Trump’s office emailed Monday seeking comment.

In February, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, Biden’s doctor, summarized the current president’s health after a “comprehensive review” of his medical history and a “detailed physical examination” at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

O’Connor concluded at the time that Biden “remains a healthy, strong 80-year-old man who is fit to carry this out successfully.” [duties] the Presidency, including those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief.”

A small lesion removed from the president’s chest was later determined to be basal cell carcinoma, a very common form of skin cancer that does not typically pose serious health risks.

The doctor also noted that Biden had undergone an “extremely detailed” and “reassuring” neurological exam that did not reveal any “cerebellar or central neurological disorder,” although it was not clear that the president had performed a cognitive exam .

Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson of Texas, who was Trump’s White House doctor and remains an ardent supporter of the ex-president, claimed Biden’s exam was “a cover-up” and insisted without evidence that Biden has a “cognitive problem.” “ and suffer from “mental decline.”

Jackson’s assessment of Trump’s health during this time in the White House raised some eyebrows because it included overly flattering rhetoric and the absurd claim that “if…” [Trump] If he ate healthier in the last 20 years, he could live to be 200.”

“He loved looking at my body. He was so strong,” Trump said of Jackson during a Conservative Political Action Conference speech last year. “But he said I was the healthiest president who ever lived. I was the healthiest. I said, ‘I like this guy.'”
