As The Hill details, Bornstein alleges that the three men associated with Trump were in his NY medical office for about 25 to 30 minutes and they left with the president's medical charts and lab reports. "He always knows where I stand and he and I both know this story is total BS..."
The President's chief of staff, John Kelly, denied publication on the website of TV channel NBC, in which the channel sources said that Kelly repeatedly called Donald trump an "idiot" and ridiculed the political ignorance of the American President. Another White House official said the tensions don't seem any more urgent or dramatic now, but acknowledged that this could accelerate Kelly's departure.
However, White House spokespeople told NBC that Kelly hasn't had a negative effect on female staffers, though they admitted Kelly possibly did say women were more emotional; one of those spokespeople also agreed and said, "Generally speaking, women are more emotional than men". "This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration's many successes".
The doctor, who said that Trump would be the healthiest individual ever elected as president if he won, is now speaking out and alleging that members of Trump's staff raided his office shortly after Trump's inauguration.More news: P&G to acquire 52% in Merck India for Rs 1300cr
Kelly was reportedly frustrated by the president's public commitment to pull USA troops out of Syria. A stung Trump had challenged him to an IQ contest in jest, but never really overcame the slight.
President Trump lashed out in an angry tweet in which he did not mention the NBC report but said "Fake News is going insane making up false stories...they are totally unhinged, and the great success of this Administration is making them do and say things that even they can't believe they are saying". 'They are totally unhinged, and the great success of this Administration is making them do and say things that even they can't believe they are saying.
Minutes after NBC Nightly News led its evening broadcast with claims about Kelly, Trump lashed out in a pair of tweets blasting "Fake News".
"The private manner aides describe may shed new light on why Kelly now finds himself - just nine months into the job - grappling with diminished influence and a drumbeat of questions about how long he'll remain at the White House". We are accomplishing the unthinkable and setting positive records while doing so! Fake News is going "bonkers!" And Kelly suffered a significant hit for mishandling the firing of a senior White House aide accused of assault by his former wives.
