Everyone’s eyes have been on Biden’s health this entire time. No one was expecting something to come from Trump’s camp.
And the Trump family’s doctor leaks news that completely changes the 2024 race.
Former President Donald Trump issued a doctor’s statement on Monday stating that his physical exams are “well within the normal range” and his cognitive tests are “exceptional,” while also praising his recent weight loss.
Dr. Bruce Aronwald’s findings comes as concern over the health of President Joe Biden, who turned 81 on Monday, and Trump, 77, grows ahead of the 2024 presidential election.
“I am pleased to report that President Trump’s overall health is excellent. His physical exams were well within the normal range and his cognitive exams were exceptional,” Aronwald wrote.
“In addition, his most recent extensive laboratory analysis remains well within normal limits and was even more favorable than prior testing in some of the most significant parameters, most likely secondary to weight reduction.”
He also said that Trump has “reduced his weight through an improved diet and continued daily physical activity, while maintaining a rigorous schedule.”
The statement also comes as Biden’s campaign has begun spotlighting Trump’s recent gaffes in an attempt to deflect attention away from the age issue.
The president’s crew has been increasingly vocal about Trump’s gaffes.

In a recent news release, they chastised him for mispronouncing the word “Hamas.”
In an attempt to cut into Trump’s lead, the former president’s Republican opponents have been pointing out his gaffes.
Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) hit at Trump over his age on Sunday, saying the presidency “is not a job for somebody that’s pushing 80 years old.”
“I just think that that’s something that has been shown with Joe Biden,” DeSantis said.
“Father Time is undefeated. Donald Trump is not exempt from any of that.”

According to Trump’s doctor, the former president is in “excellent health.”
The three-paragraph letter included no details and no test results.
“With his continued interest in preventative health monitoring and maintenance, he will continue to enjoy a healthy active lifestyle for years to come,” Aronwald added.
