Donald Trump’s doctor, Harold Bornstein, has gone rogue again. The hippie looking and sounding medical expert did several strange interviews with the New York Times, and in one of them, he claimed that Trump takes medication to promote hair growth. Bornstein revealed to the publication that the billionaire takes a small amount of finasteride to keep his orange/gold locks luscious and long. While finasteride, also known as Proscar and Propecia, is commonly used for male-pattern hair loss, it is also used to treat prostatic hyperplasia or enlarged prostate.
The revelation of Trump using the medication has sparked the rumor that he does have an enlarged prostate. The comical doctor has denied the claims. Bornstein went on to say that he also takes finasteride because he wants to have healthy shoulder length hair for many years to come.
According to Bornstein, Trump, 70, takes several drugs to keep him healthy. Trump is on medication for rosacea, sometimes called acne rosacea, and a statin to manage his blood cholesterol and lipid levels.
To reduce the risk of a heart attack, The Donald takes a daily baby aspirin. The White House has declined to comment on the claims made by Bornstein. When Mr. Bornstein was told that Trump had decided to keep Barack Obama’s Dr. Ronny Jackson, a rear admiral in the US Navy as the lead White House doctor, he replied: “That sounds perfect to me.”
Bornstein, who has served as Trump’s doctor since 1980, went on to say that he never had any plans to leave New York. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump’s flamboyant personal physician made headlines with a one-page letter that failed to reveal any of the tests that Trump has undergone in the last few years.
The letter stated that he “will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency” and he had great stamina. After an uproar, the medical expert was forced to release a second letter with more details.
