In the past, there were rumors that president Donald Trump took Finasteride for his hair loss, and I wrote an entire post about that here. However, those rumors were based on interview claims in 2017 by Mr. Trump’s former personal physician Dr. Harold Bornstein. That doctor seems to be a wacky character and I was unsure about believing everything he said in those interviews. Moreover, in the bombastic letter that the doctor wrote for Mr. Trump in 2015, he did not mention Finasteride:
2018 Official Update: Donald Trump Takes Finasteride
Several days ago president Donald Trump underwent an annual medical check-up, this time with a Dr. Ronny Jackson. Yesterday, the Whitehouse.gov website officially published detailed results of Mr. Trump’s comprehensive medical exam on their website.
On page 3, it is confirmed that Mr. Trump takes 5 medications. The line that caught my eye:
“Finasteride (Propecia). 1 mg daily for prevention of male pattern hair loss”.
So there you have it. The US president clearly has a healthy libido, no gynecomastia and no depression despite most likely many years of taking Finasteride. Some fans would even claim that Mr. Donald Trump has a perfectly healthy state of mind and temperament.
Mr. Trump even recommends Propecia to people, despite not getting any endorsement fee from Merck.
