According to an exclusive interview with CNN, President Donald Trump’s former personal physician Dr. Harold Bornstein whose office was ripped apart by Trump, claims that Trump dictated the infamous 2015 letter he wrote praising the then-candidate Trump’s health.
“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 physical strength and stamina are extraordinary,” read the letter, which Bornstein had initially said he wrote himself. “If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
Bornstein added that the president had dictated the language as the doctor and his wife drove across Central Park.
“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.”
The new revelation comes hours after Bornstein told NBC News that Trump associates had raided his office in February 2017, seizing medical records on Trump.
“They must have been here for 25 minutes or 30 minutes. It created a lot of chaos,” the doctor said, adding that he felt “raped, frightened and sad.”

So Trump dictated Dr. Bornstein's letter claiming Trump was healthiest pres candidate ever and Dr. Ronny may have had a drinking problem when he declared that Trump was in excellent health so we really have no idea what is going on medically with the president

1) The doctor who wrote Trump was the "healthiest" person ever elected POTUS said Trump dictated letter.
2) The doctor who pooh-poohed worries over Trump's mental state and said he had "good genes" has been thoroughly disgraced.

So armed with a bogus letter from his doctor, a BS excuse for not releasing his taxes, and a lawyer hiding his affairs with a porn star using his own home as collateral, Donald J. Trump got the @GOP endorsement to be President of the United States? And want to him to run again?
