"His physical strength and stamina are extraordinary", Bornstein supposedly wrote. He also gave a freaky explanation for why he blatantly mislead the public: "That's black humor, that letter".
He also described the medications Trump was taking: antibiotics to control rosacea, a statin for elevated blood cholesterol and lipids, and finasteride, a prostate-related drug to promote hair growth. The campaign released the letter in December 2015.
"Here was a guy who dedicated his life to Trump, who was sure he would be a top pick", said a Trump associate who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe conversations that he witnessed.
But the White House is pushing back on the claim there was a dramatic seizure of Trump's records.
I mean it ended: "'If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.' That's pure Trump", one critic tweeted.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders disputed the doctor's characterization of the episode.
When Sanders was questioned about the nature of the visit being a raid she said: "No, that is not my understanding".
Dr. Harold Bornstein, in an interview with NBC News, recalled the morning of February 3, 2017, when Trump Organization chief legal officer Alan Garten, Trump's personal bodyguard Keith Schiller, and a third "large" man "raided" his office and took lab reports and Trump's medical charts.
Bornstein told NBC that Schiller and another "large man" were in his office about 30 minutes and "created a lot of chaos".
They were later joined by the Trump Organisation's chief legal officer, Alan Garten.
He said the original and only copy of Trump's medical charts, including lab reports, were taken by his aides.
But the White House downplayed the incident as "standard".
He also instituted The Fake News Awards this year to point out the news outlets he said were responsible for misrepresenting him or producing false reports both before, and during, his presidency.
"I couldn't believe anybody was making a big deal about a drug that's to grow his hair, which seemed to be so important. what's the matter with that?"
