Donald Trump’s personal doctor has confessed that he did not write the unabashedly glowing 2015 letter that proclaimed Donald Trump would be the “healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
Dr. Harold Bornstein told reporters “He dictated that whole letter. I didn’t write that letter, I just made it up as I went along.”
Bornstein recently said former White House aide Keith Schiller had robbed his office and made away with the president’s medical records in February last year. The physician has now confessed that the glowing report was first dictated by Trump, and then turned into glowing prose.
"That’s black humor, that letter. That’s my sense of humor". "It’s like the movie ‘Fargo’", Dr. Bornstein continued: "It takes the truth and moves it in a different direction."
He said he told the then-candidate “what he couldn’t put in there” while his patient was dictating his physical prowess over the phone.
In the letter, Borstein claimed that Trump’s “physical strength and stamina are extraordinary.”
Dr. Bornstein had earlier insisted that he wrote the health report himself. Brushing off questions about its casual and seemingly unscientific language, he claimed he was preoccupied with patients when he wrote it.
In 2016, the doctor told CNN "I was just rushed for time, I had people to see."
Trump also lauded the health assessment, even teasing its findings the day before its release, promising his doctor's report "will show perfection."
