Dr Harold Bornstein dead at 73 – Doc who called Trump the ‘healthiest person ever elected president’ passes away

DONALD Trump's former personal physician who hailed the president as the "healthiest person ever elected" to the office has died at the age of 73.

Word of Dr Harold N. Bornstein's death was published in The New York Times' Legacy section on Thursday.

Bornstein died on the morning of Friday, January 8, the notice said, without listing a cause.

It also did not say where the doctor died.

Bornstein, who was Trump's doctor during his first campaign, made headlines when he said he would be "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”

The medical report came as Trump would be the oldest person elected to a first presidential term at 70 years old.

At 78, Joe Biden will now break that record when he's inaugurated on January 20.

Bornstein later alleged to CNN that Trump "dictated" the letter.

"He dictated that whole letter. I didn’t write that letter,” Bornstein told CNN.

“I just made it up as I went along," the doctor added.

Bornstein was ousted before Trump made it to the White House after he revealed the now twice-impeached president was taking medication used to make hair grow, The Times reported.

He alleged in an interview with NBC that after he revealed the info, his office was "raided" in February 2017, and files were seized.

Bornstein worked at Lenox Hill Hospital for more than 40 years, according to the death notice.

"Dr. Bornstein devoted his life to the practice of medicine, which he regarded as a sacred privilege," the notice said.

"His devotion to his patients was unparalleled and he continued a traditional style of personal medicine, making house calls and holding the hands of those in need until the end."

It added: "With sadness, the office at 101 East 78th Street will be without a 'Dr. Bornstein', ready and waiting to care for his fellow New Yorkers, for the first time in almost 70 years."
