On Monday, Donald Trump’s campaign released a statement from his doctor, Dr. Bruce Aronwald, stating that he is in excellent health and his cognitive exams were exceptional. This comes after recent verbal slips brought Trump’s age to the forefront. The letter described Trump’s health as entirely positive but failed to include specifics such as the tests taken or the results.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently compared his own youth to both Trump and President Joe Biden, who turned 81 on Monday, saying “The presidency is not a job for somebody that is pushing 80.” This statement emphasizes concerns about the ages of those seeking or currently holding the position.
During his tenure in the White House, 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. However, this new note from Dr. Aronwald omits basic information such as Trump’s height and weight and contains quite general claims about his health.
Furthermore, Dr. Aronwald has donated to Chris Christie’s 2015 presidential campaign according to FEC filings which could create skepticism about the note he provided regarding Trump’s health status.
The release of this note by Dr. Aronwald raises questions about its credibility given its vague nature and possible bias towards supporting Donald Trump’s candidacy for president in 2022.
Overall, it is important for candidates running for president to provide transparent medical information to voters so they can make informed decisions when casting their ballots.
It should also be noted that there are concerns about the aging process and its effects on mental ability among some candidates running for president in 2022.
As such, voters should pay close attention to any medical information provided by candidates running for office and ask tough questions to ensure they have all the necessary information before making a decision at the polling station.
