Who was Dr Harold Bornstein?January 14, 2021
Dr Harold Bornstein once served as Donald Trump's personal physician.
He has passed away at the age of 73.
Who was Dr Bornstein?
The doctor was known for publishing a report during Trump's first campaign run claiming that he would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
The medical report came as Trump would be the oldest person elected to a first presidential term at 70 years old.
At 78, Joe Biden will now break that record when he's inaugurated on January 20.
Bornstein was ousted before Trump made it to the White House after he revealed the now twice-impeached president was taking medication used to make hair grow, according to The New York Times.
Bornstein worked at Lenox Hill Hospital for more than 40 years, according to the death notice.
When did he die?
A notice on his death was published in The Times Legacy section on January 14.
Bornstein died on the morning of Friday, January 8, the notice said, without listing a cause.
It also did not say where the doctor died.
What did Bornstein say about Trump?
Bornstein, who was Trump's doctor during his first campaign, made headlines when he said he would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
Bornstein later alleged to CNN that Trump "dictated" the letter.
"He dictated that whole letter. I didn’t write that letter,” Bornstein told CNN. “I just made it up as I went along."
