On Monday, Dr. Bruce Aronwald, Donald Trump’s personal physician since 2021, released the former president’s medical report. The report highlighted Trump’s “exceptional” performance on cognitive exams and noted weight loss attributed to an improved diet. Aronwald stated that Trump’s overall health was excellent, with physical exams within the normal range, cardiovascular studies normal, and negative cancer screenings. The report also mentioned Trump’s commitment to daily physical activity and a rigorous schedule.
The timing of the medical report coincided with President Joe Biden’s 81st birthday. Biden has faced scrutiny for displaying signs of mental confusion and making rambling and sometimes untrue statements, as well as facing accusations of inappropriate behavior towards young girls. The report from Aronwald emphasized Trump’s lack of such issues.
Aronwald expressed optimism about Trump’s future health, stating, “It is my opinion that President Trump is currently in excellent health, and with his continued interest in preventative health monitoring and maintenance, he will continue to enjoy a healthy active lifestyle for years to come.”
The report also referenced a Times/Sienna Poll highlighting concerns about Biden’s age, with 71 percent of respondents considering him “too old” to be an effective president. In contrast, only 19 percent of Trump supporters viewed him as too old. The poll revealed that 62 percent doubted Biden’s “mental sharpness.”
The article concluded by pointing out Joe Biden’s low approval ratings, drawing a parallel with former President Jimmy Carter’s situation in 1979, suggesting potential electoral challenges. However, the report acknowledged the need to approach presidential health reports with caution due to the possibility of hiding serious issues.
