He confirmed that President Trump would be the « healthiest president ever » but it was later expelled from its orbit
Dr Harold N Bornstein, who was President Donald J’s personal physician for a while and who had confirmed that Mr. Trump would be « the healthiest person ever elected to the presidency » died on Friday He was 73 years old
His death was announced in a paid notice in the New York Times on Thursday The notice did not give a reason or where he died
talkative, hirsute and eccentric, Dr The gastroenterologist Bornstein was Mr. Trump’s personal physician from 1980 to 2017. He had Mr. inherited Trump as a patient of his father Dr Jacob Bornstein, with whom he shared a doctor’s office on Park Avenue and 78th Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan
If Mr. Trump was elected President in 2016, Dr Bornstein had hoped to be named a White House doctor and suggested it to a longtime Trump aide but he was banned from Trump orbit after telling the Times that the president was taking medication to grow his hair
Dr Bornstein became public knowledge in December 2015 during his famous patient’s presidential campaign
Mr Trump, a Republican, had implied that Hillary Clinton, his likely Democratic opponent, did not have the stamina to serve as president. In response to questions about his own health, he ordered Dr. Bornstein is supposed to issue a full medical report ???? Mr Trump predicted that although he would be 70 when he took office, the oldest president ever inaugurated, the report would show that his health was « perfection « â ????
He soon published a four paragraph letter written by Dr Bornstein said his blood pressure and unspecified laboratory test results were « amazingly good » and that his strength and endurance were exceptionalâ ????

The statement that Dr Bornstein insisted he had written and brought him a lot of publicity. As time went on, the news media interviewed him on other topics
In a series of interviews with The Times in 2017, he said that President Trump was taking a prostate drug, Propecia, to encourage hair growth the same drug that Dr Bornstein himself tried to maintain his own shoulder-length locks
He told the Times that he had no contact with Mr. Trump, since he became president and the White House hadn’t asked him, Mr. Trump’s medical records, as new administrations traditionally do
Dr Bornstein later told NBC News that two days after the Times article appeared, three representatives of Mr. Trump had « attacked » ???? his office and took all of Mr. Trump’s medical records.They also told him to remove a picture he shared with Mr. Trump
White House officials told NBC that there was no raid and that the men had consulted the president’s medical records as « standard operating instructions. » and that Dr Bornstein had been cooperative
Still, Dr Bornstein said he felt he was being punished for speaking to The Times.He said Rhona Graff, Mr. Trump’s longtime executive assistant and senior vice president of the Trump Organization called him after the article appeared and said, « So you wanted to be the White House doctor? » Forget it, you’re outâ ????
