Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump released a letter Monday from his doctor testifying to the real estate magnate’s near pristine health.

It reads: “If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” It did not elaborate if Trump’s current physician had evaluated former elected officials such as George Washington or George W. Bush.

The physician, Dr. Harold N. Bornstein of Manhattan’s Lenox Hill Hospital, wrote Trump has had no cancer, major orthopedic surgery and his cardiovascular health is “excellent.” Bornstein also gave Trump’s blood pressure: 110/65.

Trump told the public in early December that his health records would “show perfection.”

Here’s the full letter:

    Jeez, did Trump dictate that letter himself? Can’t believe any self-respecting doctor would write that crap.

  2. Trump’s Doctor: I know this because I have seen the health record of all presidents. Given his temperament and excellent health, Trump will outlive all of us.

  3. Worth noticing that the email of the doctor is also visible.
