Trump 'dictated' his own glowing health report: doctor

Yesterday, NBC broke an exclusive story about the president's long-time family physician, NY doctor Harold Bornstein.

But Mr Trump 'dictated that whole letter.

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.

Bornstein said he was not given a form authorising the release of the medical records and signed by the President known as a HIPAA release - which is a violation of patient privacy law. The letter thrust the eccentric Bornstein, with his shoulder-length hair and round eyeglasses, into public view.

In an interview with CNN, Mr Bornstein said the 2015 letter suggesting that Mr Trump would be the "healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency" was not his professional assessment.

Trump, who was 70 when he assumed office, is the oldest person ever to be elected president.

Neither the White House nor Trump have commented on Bornstein's latest allegations about the 2015 letter. And it described his cardiovascular health as "excellent".

Klay Thompson finished the game as the leading scorer for the Warriors with 27 points, Anthony Davis had 21 for the Pelicans. Curry has participated fully in the last four team practices, and he said that he personally felt ready to go for game 1 .

The White House has however, refuted the claims saying nothing out of the ordinary took place at Bornstein's offices. He also gave a freaky explanation for why he blatantly mislead the public: "That's black humor, that letter".

"I was just rushed for time", he reportedly told CNN in September 2016.

"I think it demands some kind of an investigation to see whether he should be chastised publicly by the medical society", Scheiner added.

He insisted then that the words were his own.

According to Bornstein, he wrote a medical report under the dictation of Donald trump.

"That's black humor, that letter".

"The hand off, which occurred well over a year ago, was peaceful, cooperative and cordial", a representative for Garten, who Bornstein claims helped "raid" his office, said in a statement to the Daily News. "It's like the movie "Fargo": it takes the truth and moves it in a different direction".

"Here was a guy who dedicated his life to Trump, who was sure he would be a top pick", said a Trump associate who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe conversations that he witnessed.
