WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Harold Bornstein, Donald Trump’s personal doctor, alleges that the president himself basically wrote the strange letter of health unusually written with many superlatives, CNN reported Tuesday.
- Trump’s presidential campaign released the letter, signed by the president’s personal physician Dr. Bornstein, after Trump’s health was questioned in 2015.
- Bornstein reported that Trump’s longtime personal bodyguard, Keith Schiller, raided his office in 2017, searching for medical records.
President Donald Trump’s physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, claims that the letter of health Trump’s presidential campaign released in 2015, was basically written by Trump himself.
Bornstein’s letter read:
“Over the past 39 years, I am pleased to report that Mr. Trump has had no significant medical problems. Mr. Trump has had a recent complete medical examination that showed only positive results. Actually, his blood pressure, 110/65, and laboratory test results were astonishingly excellent.”
“His PSA test score is 0.15 (very low). His physical strength and stamina are extraordinary,” the letter continued. “His cardiovascular status is excellent.”
The letter ended with the doctor vouching for Trump’s excellent health condition.
“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
The letter had many superlatives which makes it bizarre, very similar to Trump’s technique when tweeting.
Bornstein admitted to CNN, “He dictated that whole letter. I didn’t write that letter. I just made it up as I went along.”
Bornstein told NBC News on Tuesday that his office was raided in February 2017 by White House aide Keith Schiller, Trump Organization chief legal officer Alan Garten and an unidentified “large man.”
The alleged raid happened two days after Dr. Bornstein revealed in a New York Times interview that he had prescribed a hair growth medication (Propecia) for Trump for years. He also revealed that the president took medications for cholesterol and rosacea, a skin disease.
Bornstein claims that Schiller and company took all Trump’s medical records, including the only copies of his charts and lab reports. The group also ordered Bornstein to remove a framed photo of Trump and Bornstein from the waiting room wall.
The New York-based doctor said that the raid left him feeling “raped, frightened and sad. They must have been here for 25 or 30 minutes. It created a lot of chaos.”
The alleged raid of Bornstein’s office was “standard procedure” for a newly-elected president, according to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
