A plastic surgeon who worked on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has been paid $5 million for a procedure he said would make him look more presidential.
The procedure was performed on Trump in 2005 in the Oval Office, which is now the president’s private residence.
The surgery is part of an effort to make Trump more presidential by changing the way he speaks and behaves, and the president has been critical of the surgery, which was conducted by Dr. John McElroy, a friend and former colleague of Trump’s.
The operation was performed at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pittsburgh, according to a statement from the Trump campaign.
McElry told The New York Times that he had been approached by Trump to do the surgery and he agreed to do it.
“He had already gotten over a few things that had happened in the campaign and was excited to get back into the campaign,” McElroys son, Jonathan McElrry, told the paper.
“And he thought he was going to be able to do more for Donald and his campaign and his country.”
McElriys son said that when he was told about the operation, “I thought it was a joke and that it was going on to be funny and that Donald had no idea that this was even happening.
And then I found out it was real.
So it’s really gratifying that I could have been a part of this.”
He added that he didn’t expect to be the recipient of such a large donation.
“I think it’s important to be a part and be a positive influence, so that people have a positive experience with your surgery,” McElvay told The Times.
McElfrey was known for having done surgeries on people he admired like Bill Clinton and President George H.W. Bush, and he also had surgery on his own son, the son of former president Jimmy Carter, to get him into shape.
The New Yorker reported in December that McElRry had worked on President Trump’s behalf for five years.
Trump has called McElrey a friend, saying he has been the first person to congratulate him on the job.
Trump did not respond to a request for comment.
