Former Trump Doctor Now Swears He Didn't Write that Glowing Bill of Health

Dr. Harold Bornstein, who had been Donald Trump's physician for more than three decades, wrote a glowing bill of health for then-candidate Trump in 2015. Trump, Bornstein wrote, had "extraordinary" physical strength and "astonishingly excellent" blood pressure, concluding that he would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”

Bornstein now says the candidate put words in his mouth. 

Bornstein claims to have been taken advantage of again two weeks after Trump's inauguration. Trump lawyers and bodyguards raided his Manhattan office, he said, hoping to seize Trump's medical records.

“How would you feel if you cared for someone for 35 years, they came and robbed your office?” Bornstein told CNN.

"I feel raped, frightened, and sad," Bornstein said in an exclusive interview with NBC News.

When asked about the raid at Tuesday's White House press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that, as was simple "standard operating procedure" for any new president, the White House Medical Unit took possession of his medical records.
