Trump 'dictated' his own glowing health report: doctor

"Donald Trump is so unhealthy that he had to fake a doctor's note to voters", another wrote.

A letter from Donald Trump's NY physician released by his campaign in 2015 declaring he would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency" was composed by the candidate himself, the doctor said.

Dr. Harold Bornstein, in an interview with NBC News, recalled the morning of February 3, 2017, when Trump Organization chief legal officer Alan Garten, Trump's personal bodyguard Keith Schiller, and a third "large" man "raided" his office and took lab reports and Trump's medical charts. Trump dictated it, he said. Doctors just don't speak like that when discussing a patient, not in public at least. Federal patient privacy law bars doctors from relinquishing records without a signed release from the patient. Asked about the incident, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told NBC News on Tuesday that taking possession of medical records was "standard operating procedure for a new President" and that it was not accurate to characterize what happened as a "raid".

At that time, we have now learned, Bornstein was hoping to be appointed as one of Trump's personal physicians in the White House. "They must have been here for 25 or 30 minutes".

Given the overly enthusiastic language used in the letter, questions were raised about whether Trump had had an input into what was written, but Bornstein said at the time that the tone of the letter was due to him writing it in a rush, The Hill reported. "It created a lot of chaos", Bornstein said, adding he felt "raped, frightened and sad" about the incident.

The encounter lasted 20 minutes or less, the person said.

If Bornstein gave away the originals without having paper or electronic copies on hand, "that's a problem", Rothstein said.

"I am fortunate to have been blessed with great genes", Trump wrote on Facebook at the time.

But generally, experts said, only a complaint by the patient - in this case, Trump, who ostensibly wanted the documents - would trigger legal action. "I didn't write that letter", Bornstein told CNN on Tuesday.

The letter said that a recent medical exam showed "only positive results" for the then-candidate and that "his physical strength and stamina are extraordinary".

"Lab tests astonishingly excellent". He'd been Trump's personal doctor for more than 35 years. And it described his cardiovascular health as "excellent". "You don't know what else he's done", Caplan said. The admission could raise questions about whether the kooky doctor breached medical rules by signing a medical assessment he didn't draft.

"He dictated the whole letter".

Bornstein said he made a decision to speak out after seeing reports accusing Jackson of loosely prescribing pain medications while serving as the White House physician.
