On Tuesday, former Donald Trump doctor Harold Bornstein dropped a bit of a bombshell in a CNN interview, claiming that the glowing doctor note he wrote for then-candidate Trump in 2016 was actually dictated by Trump himself.

President Trump's longtime physician said in an interview published Tuesday that after he told The New York Times that Trump took a drug to promote hair growth, two Trump aides staged what he called "a raid" of his Manhattan office in February 2017 and removed all of Trump's medical files.

They were later joined by the Trump Organisation's chief legal officer, Alan Garten.

The White House didn't respond to a request for comment about Bornstein's claim. He left the post on September 2017, reports IANS.

"May I say in the long history of talk show hosts, you are the most virile and vigorous one of them all", Myers' Bornstein said to Kimmel, echoing similarly grandiloquent language used in Bornstein's letter.

Bornstein tells NBC he felt "raped, frightened, and sad", though it is perhaps understandable that the president would discontinue his relationship with a doctor who gave out embarrassing information about his hair-growth drug.

A person familiar with the episode, speaking to CNN on condition of anonymity, believes Bornstein was presented with a letter from the White House physician's office requesting the release.

"As is standard operating procedure, the White House Medical Unit took possession of the president's medical records", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.

Trump's longtime doctor said he got a call from the White House after the story ran, saying he was out the running for the role of White House physician.

Two days later, Bornstein recalled, he was in his office when three men arrived, without warning, and demanded all of Trump's medical records. It said: 'If elected, Mr Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency'.

As for Bornstein's description that it had had the feel of a raid, she said, "No, that is not my understanding". Trump dictated it, he said. Patients have a right to a copy of their medical records but the original physical record belongs to the doctor, said Dr. Matthew Wynia, director of the Center for Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Colorado.

The New York doctor also noted Schiller never provided a form authorizing the release of the records, signed by the president - which is a violation of patient privacy law. As in his previous accounts, Bornstein said he was rushed when the auto arrived, so he wrote up the report quickly.
