Trump's Former Doctor Claims POTUS Dictated Favorable Health Letter

  • Trump's Doctor Says Trump Basically Wrote That Glowing Health Letter: Report

Hamblin wrote that doctors have to make their own medical judgements, and that while they must rely on reports from their patients, their medical assessments must be their own. "I didn't write that letter", Bornstein told CNN about 71-year-old Trump, who became the oldest president to be elected in USA history.

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

As well as claiming the then-presidential hopeful had "excellent" cardiovascular health, the letter claimed Trump's lab tests and blood pressure were "astonishingly excellent".

"His physical strength and stamina are extraordinary", the letter continued. This morning, the daughter who throughout the marketing campaign proclaimed president trump would be the healthiest particular person ever elected to the presidency says that got here from trump himself. "I didn't write that letter", Bornstein told CNN on Tuesday.

"If specific things are being (dictated), then what was not in the letter?"

"I am fortunate to have been blessed with great genes", Mr Trump, who became the oldest president to be elected in USA history, wrote on Facebook at the time. "When he says that, I feel like Bornstein just prescribed me Viagra".

"That's black humor, that letter".

"This is like a celebration for me", said Bornstein, who has previously expressed interest in taking on the role of White House physician. "It's like the movie "Fargo": it takes the truth and moves it in a different direction".

The incident was carried out by then-White House aide Keith Schiller and another "large man" on February 3, 2017, Bornstein said.

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. I could not consider anyone was making an enormous deal about it, a medicine {that a} to develop his hair which appeared to be so essential. They also reportedly told Bornstein to take down a framed photo of Trump and Bornstein from a wall in the waiting room.

But generally, experts said, only a complaint by the patient - in this case, Trump, who ostensibly wanted the documents - would trigger legal action.

Bornstein told NBC that the episode left him "frightened and sad". "It created a lot chaos".

His White House doctor, Ronny Jackson, said at the time: "I have no concerns about his cognitive ability or neurological functions".

But the White House downplayed the incident as "standard".
