CNN doctor Sanjay Gupta claims Trump has heart disease

CNN doctor Sanjay Gupta claims Trump has heart disease

Trump's health matters - he has to be in shape both physically and psychologically to do his job.

During the 2016 election, Trump's controversial policy proposals, and reckless behavior on the campaign trail and on social media raised red flags, leading to the billionaire real estate mogul to release the results of a physical during the broadcast of "The Dr. Oz Show".

Conversely, in his report on Tuesday, White House physician Dr. Ronny L. Jackson said Trump doesn't have a lot of the traditional risk factors for heart issues, like smoking or diabetes. According to Corey Lewandowski, his former campaign manager, a typical McDonald's order would be "two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted". Is he really in good health? After all, Americans have been watching Trump on TV for more than a decade.

Jackson, almost equaling the prediction of Trump's personal doctor that he would be the healthiest president ever, predicted Trump would remain healthy "for the remainder of another term, if he's elected".

"His score is 133, and anything over 100 indicates plaque is present and that the patient has heart disease", said Gupta. If there's an issue with his health, they want to catch it as early as possible to preserve his life.

Next: Trump's doctor isn't anxious - but maybe he should be. Jackson accused doctors who have tried to diagnose Trump from afar of performing "tabloid psychiatry".

Every annual physical offers the White House physician a chance to discuss any health concerns with the president. Now that it is informed rather than speculative, that is a good thing.

Jackson said he will work with Trump to design an exercise routine and eating program that will help him get a better handle on his weight.

"Executive Time: The Trump Filet-o-Fish and Chocolate Milkshake Diet for Peak Fitness". Another reporter asked why Trump had the "sniffles".

Is his diet putting him in danger?

After college, after Trump mostly gave up his personal athletic interests, he came to view time spent playing sports as time wasted. Gupta said on CNN that, based on the coronary calcium score shared from his physical, Trump has a common form of heart disease. And the girthers are willing to put money on proving Trump is lying. He takes a cholesterol-lowering statin drug, and, though he is in decent health for someone his age, he should exercise more. In Trump's case, these meds could be precautionary. "I don't have those problems".

"I've never known him to repeat himself when he's around me".

The President is mentally very sharp and very intact. "The president's overall health is excellent", he said, repeating "excellent" eight times: "Hands down, there's no question that he is in the excellent range". "And now that he is 6'3, trump will now claim he can dunk a basketball", a tweet stated. "If the dementia tests are equally accurate, we are doomed". His mother died at 88 and his father lived to 93, though he suffered from Alzheimer's disease for about five years.

He spoke to media for more than 50 minutes, at the request of the president.

"It's called genetics", Jackson said, shrugging. He probably should have also undergone a psychiatric evaluation, but did not do so.
