Donald Trump tells Dr. Oz he wants to lose weight

Posted on

For Thursday’s episode of The Dr. Oz Show, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump sat down with the doctor himself to go through his medical history. At one point, Dr. Oz raised some concerns about Trump’s weight, and Trump was open about how many pounds he’d like to lose.

“You’re [6 feet 3 inches tall], 236 pounds as I mentioned,” said Dr. Oz. “Now, in my mind, I’m thinking your body surface area and your BMI is high. It’s probably close to 30, which is sort of the barrier for most people. Do your doctors or your family ever give you a hard time about your weight?”

“Yeah, I think I could lose a little weight. I’ve always been a little bit this way,” said the former Apprentice host. “I think that if I had one thing, I’d like to lose weight. It’s tough because of the way I live. But the one thing I would like to do is be able to drop 15 to 20 pounds. It would be good.”

In a clip released on Wednesday, Trump also addressed the doctor’s concerns about his age. At 70, Trump would be the oldest newly elected president. (His rival Hillary Clinton turns 69 on Oct. 26.) “Yeah, just about the same age as Ronald Reagan, and Hillary is a year behind me,” he said. “I would say just based on my life…I don’t know if this makes sense: I feel as good as I did when I was 30.”
