Trump loses weight – ‘I’m still strong’
President Donald Trump on Tuesday lost 10 pounds in the past week, according to a report in the New York Times.
The president had been in the hospital for a week recovering from pneumonia, which has forced him to keep a low public profile.
On Tuesday, he weighed in at nearly 300 pounds, up from about 270 pounds a few weeks ago.
He told The Times that he was a “very happy man” in the wake of his weight loss.
“I have a very strong heart and my whole body is very healthy.
I don’t want to take any chances with my health, so I’m still very happy,” Trump told the newspaper.
The President is also said to have gained nearly 10 pounds from the trip to Mexico and the United Kingdom.
The Times report did not identify the President’s source.
On Saturday, the President met with US President Joe Biden in the Oval Office.
