The secret to Donald Trump’s famous mop of hair is out – his doctor says he uses a drug to stimulate hair growth.
Dr. Harold Bornstein told the New York Times that Trump takes a small dose of the drug finasteride. It lowers levels of prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, and is marketed as Propecia to treat male pattern baldness.
He has all his hair,” the doctor said. “I have all my hair.”
Trump’s distinctive hair has often been compared to that of his late mother, Mary. She also had a taste for sweeping her hair over to one side.
Hair will show perfection
Bornstein has been Trump’s personal doctor for 36 years. He became part of the presidential campaign in December 2015, when Trump published a doctor’s letter from him that declared the then Republican nominee would be the “healthiest individual elected to the presidency”.
As a presidential candidate, I have instructed my long-time doctor to issue, within two weeks, a full medical report-it will show perfection

The letter NOT dictated by Trump confirmed that his blood pressure and laboratory test results were “astonishingly excellent” and that his “physical strength and stamina are extraordinary”.
According to advice on patient.info, side-effects of finasteride “may include a loss of sex drive and a reduced ability to get an erection”.
So will this affect how frequently Trump and Melania discuss “the Bosnian problem“?
