CNN’s Sanjay Gupta is reporting that Trump’s medical test shows he indeed has heart disease even though Trump’s doctor yesterday said he doesn’t have it. Trump’s doctor told Gupta yesterday that Trump does have Coronary Atherosclerosis, however.

Of course Gupta also admits that Trump’s results are where you’d expect them to be for most 71 year old men, they they are very normal for his age.

Also, here is how WebMD defines Coronary Atherosclerosis:
Atherosclerosis — sometimes called hardening of the arteries — can also slowly narrow the arteries throughout your body.
When atherosclerosis affects the ones of the heart, it’s called coronary artery disease.
