Donald Trump has grown a full inch since becoming a senior citizen, according to his White House doctor

Published

on

President Donald Trump is in “excellent” health, Navy doctor Ronny Jackson told reporters during a White House press briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Jackson reported that Trump is six feet and three inches (75″) tall and weighs 239 lbs.

In 2012, the State of New York issued Trump a driver’s license listing his height as six feet and two inches (74″).

The document was issued in May of 2012 when Trump was sixty-five years old.

That height/weight ratio listed by the White House makes Trump “overweight” according to the Department of Health and Human Services’ Body Mass Index (BMI).

If Trump were a single pound heavier, HHS would label him “obese.”

However, if Trump were a single inch shorter, he would also be considered medically obese.

There are a number of potential explanations for the discrepancy between New York and the White House on President Trump’s height. One of the readings could have been wrong. The president may have grown an inch.

Or, the president may actually be obese.

Published
