Harold Bornstein, the former attending physician of U.S. President Donald Trump, has died at the age of 73. This was reported Thursday, January 14, by The New York Times.
“Dr. Harold Bornstein, who was President Donald Trump’s personal physician and testified that Trump ‘would be the healthiest man ever elected to the presidency,’ has passed away,” the report said.
