Dr Harold Bornstein told CNN that the 2015 letter stating that Trump was the "healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency" was not his professional declaration.
Dr Harold Bornstein admitted he did not write the December 2015 letter, attributed to him, in which the then-presidential candidate's physical condition was hailed in sometimes hyperbolic language.
The missive did not offer much medical evidence for those claims beyond citing a blood pressure of 110/65, described by Bornstein as "astonishingly excellent". It turns out the patient himself wrote it, according to Bornstein."He dictated that whole letter". His White House doctor, Ronny Jackson, said at the time: "I have no concerns about his cognitive ability or neurological functions".
"Those records were being transferred over to the White House Medical Unit, as requested", said Sanders.

The longtime Trump doctor added that the raid might have been connected to him telling The New York Times that he prescribed a hair-growth medication for Trump since it took place only days after that information was published.
"What Dr. Bornstein described may be a HIPAA violation by the doctor himself", said Erin C. Fuse Brown, a Georgia State University associate professor of law.
Bornstein told NBC that Schiller and another "large man" were in his office about 30 minutes and "created a lot of chaos".
Now, as Bornstein re-enters the spotlight claiming Trump's ex-bodyguard Keith Schiller robbed his office when Schiller retrieved Trump's medical records, the story behind the letter is becoming clearer. "Short of rape, murder, or drug dealing, it's hard to lose a license", said Caplan.
Trump cut ties with Bornstein shortly after the article.
"I couldn't believe anybody was making a big deal out of a drug to grow his hair that seemed to be so important", he said.
"Donald Trump is so unhealthy that he had to fake a doctor's note to voters", another wrote.
