The claims have come at a time when the US media has been abuzz with the physical changes being spotted in Trump in his post-presidency days. Since leaving White House, Trump has shed nearly 15 pounds and has also given up on his favourite M&M sweets, and several other snacks that the former lover of Diet Coke used to consume on daily basis.

This change in Trump’s physical health has happened due to his regular golfing sessions and dietary restrictions that he adopted after his health scare when he struggled to recover from the deadly coronavirus.

Trump has also told local news channel, Fox News, that he is “very seriously” considering re-running for the post in 2024 and has claimed to have support of majority of the Republicans.
