Donald Trump’s former personal physician has come forward with claims that Trump was the one behind his letter of health that was submitted in 2015 when he was still a candidate.
“He dictated that whole letter. I didn’t write that letter,” Dr. Harold Bornstein told CNN. “I just made it up as I went along.”
His confession now is a complete turn-around from two years ago when the letter was released and helps give a more complete picture of what was going on.
“His physical strength and stamina are extraordinary,” the letter, released by Trump’s campaign in 2015 praised. “If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
He also says that Trump himself was the one who dictated the language used in the letter.
“[Trump] dictated the letter and I would tell him what he couldn’t put in there,” he said. “They came to pick up their letter at 4 o’clock or something.”
“That’s black humor, that letter. That’s my sense of humor,” Bornstein added. “It’s like the movie ‘Fargo’: It takes the truth and moves it in a different direction.”
Before the letter was released, Trump had shot off a tweet saying that his examination would “show perfection.”
“As a presidential candidate, I have instructed my long-time doctor to issue, within two weeks a full medical report,” Trump tweeted. “It will show perfection.”

On top of all this, Trump’s former doctor claims that Trump sent a couple of his goons to raid his office and take all the medical records back in 2017.
“They must have been here for 25 minutes or 30 minutes. It created a lot of chaos,” the doctor said, also adding that he had felt “raped, frightened and sad.”
