Donald Trump’s personal physician released the former president’s medical report Monday, saying the leading GOP presidential candidate’s performance on cognitive exams was “exceptional” and that he had lost weight due to an improved diet.
The report was released by Dr. Bruce Aronwald, Trump’s doctor since 2021.

Notably, the findings “just happened” to be released on the same day that octogenarian President Joe Biden celebrated his 81st birthday. As we’ve reported extensively, Biden has continued to show signs of mental confusion, tells weird stories that are rambling and often untrue, and acts inappropriately toward young girls.
Aronwald said Trump had no such issues:
“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. 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,” Aronwald wrote.
He wrote that Trump’s cardiovascular studies were “normal,” that all of his cancer screenings came back negative, and that he had “reduced his weight through an improved diet and continued daily physical activity, while maintaining a rigorous schedule.”
He added that he sees nothing troubling on the horizon:
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.
Biden isn’t that much older than the 77-year-old Trump, but voters think he’s aged a lot more noticeably. RedState’s Mike Miller reported earlier in November about a damning Times/Sienna Poll that showed Americans don’t believe Joe is up to the job:
For Mr. Biden, who turns 81 later this month, being the oldest president in American history stands out as a glaring liability.
An overwhelming 71 percent said he was “too old” to be an effective president — an opinion shared across every demographic and geographic group in the poll, including a remarkable 54 percent of Mr. Biden’s own supporters.
In contrast, only 19 percent of supporters of Mr. Trump, who is 77, viewed him as too old, and 39 percent of the electorate overall.
62 percent also said Mr. Biden does not have the “mental sharpness” to be effective — are just the start of a sweeping set of Biden weaknesses in the survey results.
In fact, Joe Biden faces the worst approval numbers of any president one year out from a reelection bid since… Jimmy Carter in 1979. And we know what happened to him—a landslide defeat at the hands of Ronald Reagan.
Of course, these presidential health reports must be taken with a grain of salt because if there is something seriously wrong, they will try to hide it as long as possible. Joe Biden’s medical report from February says, “President Biden remains a healthy, vigorous 80-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief.”
That’s not what I’m seeing.
