Sometimes we elect presidents with previous health issues or a history of health problems. It’s also pretty common for presidential candidates to release their prior health records to show they are in working order prior to the last push for the position. Well Donald Trump’s personal care physician just sent a letter to the media and it is pretty incredible.
Presidents do hide these things and have in the past. Calvin Coolidge suffered from massive bouts of depression, Grover Cleveland had mouth cancer, and Woodrow Wilson even had a stroke. In a president, it’s important to know we wouldn’t have someone croak on the first day on the job.
That’s good news for Trump as it seems he could be the healthiest man every to become president! Here’s the letter in it’s entirety from his physician, Jacob Bornstein.

To Whom My Concern:
I have been the personal physician of Mr. Donald J. Trump since 1980. His previous physician was my father, Dr. Jacob Bornstein. Over the past 39 years, I am pleased to report that Mr. Trump has had no significant medical problems. Mr. Trump has had a recent complete medical examination that showed only positive results. Actually, his blood pressure, 110/65, and laboratory test results were astonishingly excellent.
Over the past twelve months, he has lost at least fifteen pounds. Mr. Trump takes 81 mc of aspirin daily and a low dose of s statin. His PSA test score is 0.15 (very low). His physical strength and stamina are extraordinary.
Mr. Trump has suffered no form of cancer, has never had a hip, knee, or shoulder replacement or any other orthopedic surgery. His only surgery was an appendectomy at age ten. His cardiovascular status is excellent. He has no history of ever using alcohol or tobacco products.
If elected, Mr Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
You can read the entire thing on Donald Trump’s website here.
So not only would his policies be wonderful for this country, there’s littler to no chance of Trump being unable to do his presidential duties due to health concerns. Just one more hurdle down towards a Trump inauguration in January of 2016!
