His given weight is down about 25 pounds from when he was arrested in Manhattan in April.
His most recent weight is below what White House physician Dr. Sean Conley reported in 2020 when he said Trump was 244 pounds during a physical.
When Trump had his physical with former White House Physician Dr. Ronny Jackson (now a Trump loyalist House member from Texas), Trump’s height was listed as 6-feet 3-inches and 239 pounds.

The news may come to disdain to some gamblers, who faced an over/under for Trump that was significantly higher.
One bookmaker site, Antigua-based BetOnline, on Friday offered an over/under of 273.5 pounds for Trump’s weight upon his surrender to authorities in Fulton County, noted gambling news Instagram account TheJuice.
Over/unders, which are also often used to bet on the point total of a sporting event, allow the gambler to select whether they believe the outcome will be higher or lower than amount selected by oddsmakers.
According to BetOnline employee Dave Mason, 77 percent of gamblers have taken the over bet on Trump’s weight so far, spurring the sportsbook to increase the total by eight pounds.
That might rankle the former president, who on Thursday lashed out at Fox News, accusing the network of using unflattering photographs that make him look ‘big’ and ‘orange’ with his ‘chin pulled way back’.

‘Why doesn’t Fox and Friends show all of the Polls where I am beating Biden, by a lot,’ Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform. ‘Also. they purposely show the absolutely worst pictures of me, especially the big ‘orange’ one with my chin pulled way back.’
A spokesperson for Fox News had no immediate comment.
When the news of Trump’s most recent weight broke, liberal host Jake Tapper seemed surprised by the announcement live on air on CNN.
He can audibly be heard saying ‘wait, wait… what?’ after Trump’s height and weight are announced.

Just like a common criminal, he was officially booked for the fourth time this year and fingerprinted by authorities at the Fulton County jail. He then stared into the camera to have his humiliating photo taken and was promptly released on $200,000 bail.
The former president headed down to Georgia on Thursday afternoon from his Bedminster, New Jersey, home.
Ahead of his surrender, Trump slammed Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis as a ‘Radical Left, Lowlife District Attorney.’ His surrender came hours after Willis requested Trump face trial in Georgia on October 23, and as his former chief of staff Mark Meadows surrendered to cops.
A handful of other Trump allies and ‘co-conspirators’ who turned themselves into the Georgia prison this week also had their mugshots released by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office. They are accused of joining a ‘conspiracy’ led by Trump to unlawfully change the outcome of the election.
‘America’s Mayor’ Rudy Giuliani faced the humiliation of having his mugshot taken after getting booked at an Atlanta jail Wednesday.

The former Trump lawyer is facing 13 felony counts, including RICO charges.
It was a stunning and symbolic turnaround for the former mob boss prosecutor, who famously used the RICO Act to take down the Mafia in the 1980s during his time as a Manhattan prosecutor.
Trump slammed the arrest of his former attorney in a Truth Social post after the release of Giuliani’s mugshot.
‘The greatest Mayor in the history of New York City was just ARRESTED in Atlanta, Georgia, because he fought for Election Integrity. THE ELECTION WAS RIGGED & STOLLEN. HOW SAD FOR OUR COUNTRY. MAGA!’ Trump wrote.
