On Twitter this past Saturday, March 15, several Trump supporters posted photos of the former President, saying 74-year-old Donald Trump "looks fantastic," is "stronger than ever" and "is getting in shape for 2024."

Non MAGA minions responding to the images of Trump, however, saw some cause for concern in the Trump's appearance.
Many, taking a look at Trump with his daughter-in-law Lara at Mar-a-Lago, felt he looked ill.

Twitter users expressed concern for Trump's health, saying the images were far more concerning than they were flattering.

Trump will be 78 at the time of the 2024 elections, which would make him the oldest Presidential candidate in history, beating Joe Biden by about six months.
