A Wall Street analyst is sounding the alarm about President Trump’s health.
According to CNBC, Horizon Investments’ chief global strategist Greg Valliere recently listed his concerns which include Trump’s excess weight, lack of exercise, poor eating habits, short sleep time of four hours per night, and angry outbursts.
Most of these issues have been raised before.
During the 2016 campaign, Trump admitted to his appreciation for fast food, telling CNN’s Anderson Cooper, “Burger King, McDonald’s, I can live with it. The other night I had Kentucky Fried Chicken. Not the worst thing in the world.”
And Politico reported recently that his former bodyguard Keith Schiller would go on McDonald’s runs to get him “a quarter-pounder with cheese (no pickles, extra ketchup) and a fried apple pie.”
In terms of exercise, Trump has reportedly expressed a scientifically unproven view that physical exertion depletes the body’s “finite amount of energy.” As such, he largely stopped playing active sports after college.
Nevertheless, Trump has spoken positively about his physical condition in the past and released a doctor’s note last September which attested to his “excellent physical health.” But Valliere commented on the lack of news since then, writing, “He has not, to our knowledge, had a physical in over a year, or if he has, the results have not been disclosed.”
