In response to recent concerns about his age, Donald Trump’s campaign released a note from his doctor, Dr. Bruce Aronwald, stating that he is in excellent health and his cognitive exams were exceptional. This comes after Trump’s former personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, also released a similar letter in 2015.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently commented on the issue of age in the presidency, saying “The presidency is not a job for somebody that is pushing 80.” His statement emphasizes the concerns about the ages of those seeking or currently holding the position.
However, Aronwald’s letter did not provide specific details about the tests taken or their results. Unlike previous medical statements about Trump’s health, this letter contained general claims about his health without providing basic information such as his height and weight.
During his time in office, Trump received a glowing bill of health from Dr. Ronny Jackson, who now serves as a congressman and one of Trump’s staunchest supporters. Jackson praised Trump’s “good genes,” his “excellent” cardiac health, and how he did “exceedingly well” on his cognitive test.
It should be noted that Aronwald also donated to Chris Christie’s 2015 presidential campaign, which raises questions about potential partiality when attesting to Trump’s health.
