Earlier this month, Donald Trump vowed to release a "full medical report" that would "show perfection." On Monday, Trump didn't come close to living up to his promise of providing a comprehensive report, but he did release a one-page doctor's note that managed to go full Trump. "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency," Harold N. Bornstein wrote:


In a short statement accompanying the release, the always-humble billionaire explained that he was "blessed with great genes," adding: "People have been impressed by my stamina, but to me it has been easy because I am truly doing something that I love."
