Trump 'dictated own doctor's letter about his excellent health'

Trump's Doctor Says Trump Basically Wrote That Glowing Health Letter: Report
DONALD TRUMP'S former doctor has said the United States president dictated an infamous letter boasting about his "extraordinary" health and stamina.
"If specific things are being (dictated), then what was not in the letter?". "I didn't write that letter", Bornstein said Tuesday.
Bornstein first made headlines in December 2015 after he released a letter describing Trump's health.
In the letter, Trump's blood pressure was described as "astonishingly excellent".
"His physical strength and stamina are extraordinary", Bornstein supposedly wrote.
Donald Trump's former doctor has said that the USA president himself dictated an infamous letter describing his own "extraordinary" physical health and stamina.
A former doctor of the American President Harold Bornstein told the media that reports on the status of health of the then candidate to head the White house it was not.
Bornstein said the original and only copy of Trump's charts, including lab reports under the president's name and various pseudonyms, were taken.
At that time, we have now learned, Bornstein was hoping to be appointed as one of Trump's personal physicians in the White House. Mr Bornstein also said that Trump's bodyguard had carried out a "raid" on his offices in February 2017, removing all of Trump's medical records.
The White House and a separate source familiar with the handover of Trump's medical records disputed Bornstein's description of the incident.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders responded that it was not a raid and that it was "standard procedure" for the White House Medical Unit to take care of the President's medical records.
Dr Bornstein had privately told several associates that he had been the target of a raid during which handwritten records and printed laboratory results were seized, but he had declined to answer questions publicly about the episode until this week.
"This is like a celebration for me", Dr Bornstein said.
Hilariously, Bornstein is no longer Trump's doctor, and it's because the long-haired guru revealed that Trump uses the hair-growth drug Propecia. The visitors stayed for about twenty-five or thirty minutes and created "a lot of chaos", Bornstein recounted, and at no point did they present a medical-release form.
But the White House downplayed the incident as "standard". "Raped, frightened and sad".
"I couldn't believe anybody was making a big deal out of a drug to grow his hair", he told NBC.
