On Monday, the former President Donald Trump’s campaign released a letter from his personal physician Dr. Bruce Aronwald, stating that he is in “excellent” health and his cognitive exams were “exceptional.” This comes after Trump, who turned 77 on July 14th, made verbal slips that brought his age to the forefront.
The letter written by Dr. Aronwald states that Trump’s most recent comprehensive examination was September 13th, 2023. It also notes that Trump’s cardiovascular studies are all normal and cancer screening tests were negative. However, the letter does not provide any information about the types of tests that Trump took or what the results were. In 2015, Trump’s then-campaign released a similar letter written by Dr. Harold Bornstein, who later said that Trump dictated the letter to him.
During his tenure in the White House, Trump received a glowing bill of health by Dr. Ronny Jackson, the then-presidential physician. Jackson now serves as a congressman and one of Trump’s staunchest supporters praised the then-president’s health during a briefing to the White House press corps in January 2018, touting Trump’s “good genes,” how he did “exceedingly well” on his cognitive test and his “excellent” cardiac health. According to FEC filings, Aronwald donated to Chris Christie’s 2015 presidential campaign.
