I'm overweight but still healthy, insists Donald Trump

By Staff Reporter

Donald Trump has admitted during an interview that he is overweight for his height.

The US presidential candidate told Fox and Friends that he was 6ft 3ins and 16.8 stone.

While admitting that he would like to lose weight, he insisted his health and cholesterol levels were good. "If they were bad, I would say, 'Let's sort of skip this, right?", Mr Trump said.

The Republican candidate (70) also claimed that when he looked in the mirror, he saw a considerably younger man. "I see a person that's 35," he explained.

His admission came as the campaign focuses on the health of candidates after Mr Trump's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia.
