Like many presidents before him, Donald Trump faced strong criticism from a large part of the American population. Of course, things got especially ugly after the January 6 riots at the US Capitol, leaving perhaps an eternal stain on Trump’s political legacy.
While some criticized Trump’s presidency, it was his mental and physical health that others repeatedly chose to question. In fact, although he had shot the current president, Joe Biden, there were those who openly said that he was not fit for the Oval Office, in the literal sense of the world.
Interestingly, Trump doesn’t seem to exercise at all, despite playing a lot of golf.
Still, there are things one can do to improve their chances of living a longer life, even as we all age. It is generally recognized that one of those elements is exercise. Barack Obama reportedly works out for 45 minutes every morning, including cardio and weight training. According to reports, he also plays a lot of basketball.
Meanwhile, President Clinton supported physical fitness and often ran early in the day with his bodyguard. The same is true for President George W. Bush, who, according to the Washington Post, used to ride mountain bikes and on the streets.
Even though Donald Trump used to be in great shape, exercise hasn’t really been a major concern of his. According to a 2015 Business Insider article, Trump attended the New York Military Academy and graduated in 1964. His yearbook reportedly reveals that he played college football, baseball, and soccer.
In 2010, Trump declared, “I enjoyed athletics when I was 17 years old.” “I was always an excellent athlete, participating in wrestling, football, baseball and soccer. The activity I thought I liked the most was baseball.
Trump claimed that he intended to play professional baseball and that he attended a military academy in New York.
“I led the baseball team as captain. I was expected to be an expert.
Fortunately, I chose to enter the real estate industry. I was the catcher and the first baseman. I had fun and was a solid hitter. Now I am playing golf.
According to CNN, they apparently substituted Dover sole for the steak and tossed the burger buns (at least the tops).
The story claims that Trump said he needed to lose weight and required a new training regimen.
According to Newsweek, he stated, “The people who prepare the food at the White House are fantastic, but I think maybe they can cut back on the quantities a little bit, and maybe we’ll cut out some of the more fattening stuff.” and he added that he was “fine with it”.
“I have always placed a higher value on diet since I am a strong person, you know? “I waved the bat away. I mean, physically, I’m strong.
What did Trump really do in terms of exercise? Actually, not much, as it turns out. The former president once suggested that exercise is bad. He adheres to the premise that the human body works similar to a battery.
After graduating from college, Trump largely abandoned his personal athletic pursuits and began to see sports as a waste of time. Trump thought of the body as a battery with a limited amount of energy that exercise eventually depletes, according to the Washington Post’s Mike Kranisch and Marc Fisher in their book Trump Revealed.
So he was unsuccessful. He warned John O’Donnell, one of the top casino executives about him, saying, “You’re going to die early for this,” after learning that he was preparing for an Ironman triathlon.
