Doctor who praised Trump’s health says he wrote note in a rush


WASHINGTON: Donald Trump’s personal doctor, who gave the Republican presidential candidate a glowing health report, told NBC News Friday (Saturday in Manila) that he penned that note in five minutes as Trump’s car waited. “I try to get four or five lines down as fast as possible so that they would be happy,” physician Harold Bornstein of New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital said. “In the rush I think some of those words didn’t come out exactly the way they were meant.” Bornstein did say he stands by the original bill of health he gave Trump, who at age 70—16 months older than Clinton—would be the oldest person to assume the presidency if elected. “His health is excellent, especially his mental health,” the doctor said with a laugh. “He thinks he’s the best, which works out just fine.”
