[Editors note: While Nancy Pelosi’s claim that the former commander-in-chief was “morbidly obese” may have been a slight overstatement, I think we can all agree that the man’s apparent penchant for fast food is probably shaving years off of his life.

Former President Donald Trump in a Thursday interview with the Washington Post conceded that poor health could prevent him from seeking the presidency in a 2024 run.
“You always have to talk about health,” he said. “You look like you’re in good health, but tomorrow, you get a letter from a doctor saying come see me again. That’s not good when they use the word ‘again.'”
Trump has not formally announced a 2024 bid, but has teased it in the past. He further told the Post, “I don’t want to comment on running, but I think a lot of people are going to be very happy by my decision.”
The former commander-in-chief insisted his health remained strong.
He has, however, drawn criticism for his physique in the past. In May 2020, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dubbed Trump “morbidly obese,” prompting a slew of speculative articles on the technical veracity of the claim.
Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), Trump’s former White House physician, spoke of Trump’s health in 2018, saying, “I told the president that if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200 years old,” the Epoch Times reported.
The former president is known for his love of fast food. In February 2019, he hosted the Clemson football team to celebrate their victory in the national championship, amid a government shutdown. As the kitchen staff were largely furloughed, Trump instead opted to purchase a plethora of hamburgers and sides from various fast food chains, per The Guardian.
