A doctor who had described in a health report card for Donald Trump in 2015 that he would be the 'healthiest individual every elected to the presidency' has now revealed that the entire letter was dictated by Trump himself.

In an interview to CNN, New York physician Harold Bornstein has said that the entire letter was dictated to him by Trump. "He dictated that whole letter. I didn`t write that letter," Bornstein was quoted as saying.

The medical letter signed by Bornstein had prnounced Trump as being in the peak of his health. "Mr. Trump has had a recent complete medical examination that showed only positive results. Actually, his blood pressure, 110/65, and laboratory results were astonishingly excellent. His physical strength and stamina are extraordinary," the letter read. "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency."

Bornstein, who claims to have treated Trump since 1980, has now said that he had only mentioned to him what he could not include in the letter and that the content - otherwise - was dictated. He has also alleged that one of Trump's former bodyguard - Keith Schiller - raided his office once Trump had been elected to the White House.

The White House has not responded in the matter.
