How Donald Trump Became the Author of His Own "Astonishingly Excellent" Health
May 04 2018
DONALD TRUMP'S former doctor has said the United States president dictated an infamous letter boasting about his "extraordinary" health and stamina.
I just thought, Like patient, like doctor.
The man who spent decades as Trump's personal doctor said the absurd statement on his health attributed to the physician in 2015 was actually penned by the then-candidate himself. The letter portrayed Trump as someone with "extraordinary" "physical strength and stamina" with an "astonishingly excellent" blood pressure and "excellent" heart health.
His White House doctor, Ronny Jackson, said at the time: "I have no concerns about his cognitive ability or neurological functions".
Dr Bornstein was Trump's personal physician since 1980, but their "ties were cut" after he told a newspaper that Trump was using hair growth medication for years, in 2017.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday that obtaining a president's medical records is "standard operating procedure", and the incident should not be described as a raid.
With John Bolton (walrus) joining as President Trump's national security adviser in March, it was only a matter of time before equilibrium hit. Over the past 39 years, I am pleased to report that Mr Trump has had no significant medical problems.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters. "Patients can also ask for their records to be transferred to a new doctor, but that also involves making copies (i.e., transferring the information), not literally packaging up the originals and sending them off", Wynia said in an email.
Dr. Harold Bornstein might have alerted the world that President Donald Trump is taking the drug Propecia for baldness, but it was a swift Washington wind that revealed to the world the truth about the president's hair loss.
He said Trump read out the language as Bornstein and his wife were driving across Central Park.
Trump's longtime doctor said he got a call from the White House after the story ran, saying he was out the running for the role of White House physician.
