In a note released on Monday, the former President Donald Trump’s physician stated that he is in “excellent health” and will continue to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle for many years. The physical and mental health of both Trump and Democratic President Joe Biden has become a major issue in the 2024 presidential race due to Biden’s 81st birthday and Trump’s lead in the Republican nominating contest.
The note, which Trump posted on his Truth Social account, was released on the same day as Biden’s birthday. According to the note, Trump has reduced his weight through an improved diet and daily physical activity while maintaining a rigorous schedule. It was signed by Bruce Aronwald, an osteopath from New Jersey, but did not provide additional details about Trump’s health.
Trump’s physical exams were reported to be well within the normal range, and his cognitive exams were described as exceptional. This note was released by a different doctor than the one who produced a similar note in 2016. In the 2016 case, Trump’s physician, Harold Bornstein, indicated that Trump had dictated its contents.
In contrast to this latest report of good health from Aronwald, there have been concerns raised about Biden’s physical condition following his recent hospitalization for an aneurysm and surgery. Despite these concerns, he has continued with his campaign activities at full speed.
