Donald Trump: Healthiest Candidate Ever?

Donald Trump: Healthiest Candidate Ever?

Think what you will about his mental health, and don’t let the orange complexion fool you:

Donald Trump would be the physically healthiest president ever elected, according to a report from his personal physician that the Republican candidate recently shared.

“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual elected to the presidency,” Trump’s doctor, Harold Bornstein wrote.

At 70 years old by Election Day, Trump would be the oldest candidate elected for a first term in U.S. history.

“Mr. Trump has suffered no form of cancer, has never had a hip, knee or shoulder replacement or any other orthopedic surgery,” the doctor wrote, adding that Trump’s only surgery was an appendectomy at 10 years old. “His cardiovascular status is excellent. He has no history of ever using alcohol or tobacco products.”

Trump has lost at least 15 pounds in the past year, Bornstein wrote. Additionally, he said, his blood pressure and lab results were “astonishingly excellent.”

So, what’s his secret?

“I am proud to share this report, written by the highly respected Dr. Jacob Bornstein of Lenox Hill Hospital, stating that I am in excellent health. I am fortunate to have been blessed with great genes — both of my parents had very long and productive lives,” Trump said in a statement, mistakenly referring to Bornstein’s father, who saw Trump until 1980.

“People have been impressed by my stamina, but to me it has been easy because I am truly doing something that I love.”

According to the practice’s website, Harold Bornstein graduated from Tufts University and its School of Medicine, completing his residency at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York and a fellowship in gastroenterology at a Yale Affiliated program. He is a certified member of the American Board of Internal Medicine, licensed to practice in New York state. His office is roughly 1 mile from Trump Tower.

Neither Bornstein’s letter, nor Trump’s statement makes reference to the candidate’s medical deferment for bone spurs in 1968 during the Vietnam War, which the campaign previously described as “minor” and “short-term.”
