Trump’s doctor failed to tell us about this drug he takes
Donald Trump’s medical records weren’t entirely accurate, it has been claimed.
During the election campaign the now president’s doctor, Dr Harold N. Bornstein, declared that Trump’s test results were “astonishingly excellent”, his physical strength and stamina “extraordinary”.
In a bizarre, distinctly Trump way, he even declared: If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
However it’s now emerged that the president uses a drug that wasn’t mentioned in the pre-election report.
He also takes a drug called finasteride, according to the New York Times.
The drug is designed to treat male-pattern baldness – something his doctor credits with maintaining Trump’s vast combover.
However some have claimed it has serious side effects, and there have been 1,370 lawsuits against the company which markets the drug, Merck.
The drug which the president takes, who does not live with his wife, has been linked to “libido disorders, ejaculation disorders and orgasm disorders”.
Trump’s medical records aren’t the only thing to change since he came to office.
His poll ratings have collapsed too – making him the least popular president in US history.
Controversial policies such as the Muslim Ban – now suspended thanks to the courts – and attacks on popular figures such as Meryl Streep have damaged his reputation.
Such unpopularity is unprecedented for a new president.
Though President Trump has hit back – claiming, predictably, that all negative polling is “fake news”.
