Trump doctor reveals health report: ‘Cognitive exams were exceptional’

Donald Trump released a one-page document from the physician he’s used since leaving office Monday — in which a glowing review of the former president’s health and wellness is given.

The man who prides himself on eating fast food has reportedly lost weight since not working in the White House, New Jersey doctor Bruce Aronwald wrote in the letter.

He also revealed that he gave Trump a cognitive exam in which the former president was found to be “exceptional.” It didn’t give any details about the questions asked, or if it was similar to the one Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) performed while Trump was in office.

Trump said in September that he would be “all for the test” to chart his cognition. Trump had a cognitive exam in 2020, while Joe Biden’s physical included a neurological exam, but not a test for dementia.
“I read pretty carefully through the doctor’s report, and they mention neurological exam, but that was more in terms of testing motor strength and sensation and things like that,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta told CNN in 2021 about Biden’s doctor’s report.

Known as the Montreal Cognitive Assessment or The MoC test, the 2020 exam that was given to Trump resulted in his bragging about his mental abilities.


“It is a 10-minute screening exam meant to highlight possible problems with thinking and memory,” said a New York Times report at the time.

“The way our president is having a conversation about mental health is not helpful,” said Dr. Jason Karlawish, who serves as a dementia researcher at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine.

Trump later told Fox that the exam was hard for him, particularly the memory section. But he continued to brag about his exam through 2021, again in 2022 and into this year, saying that he “aced it.”

The latest doctor’s report says, “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.”

“Cardiovascular studies are all normal and cancer screening tests are all negative. President Trump has reduced his weight through an improved diet and continued daily physical activity, while maintaining a rigorous schedule. 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,” it concluded.

That’s an improvement on a 2017 report talking about Trump’s long-time philosophy about exercise.

“Other than golf, he considers exercise misguided, arguing that a person, like a battery, is born with a finite amount of energy,” wrote Evan Osnos in “How Trump Could Get Fired,” which appeared in the New Yorker.

“After college, after Trump mostly gave up his personal athletic interests, he came to view time spent playing sports as time wasted,” wrote Mike Kranisch and Marc Fisher in their book “Trump Revealed” in 2016.

“Trump believed the human body was like a battery, with a finite amount of energy, which exercise only depleted. So he didn’t work out. When he learned that John O’Donnell, one of his top casino executives, was training for an Ironman triathlon, he admonished him, “You are going to die young because of this.”

Trump released the results on Joe Biden’s 81st birthday as he continues to needle Biden about his age. Trump is 77.
