MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12: On the heels of Hillary Clinton’s medical episode that took place during the 9/11 ceremonies on Sunday, Donald Trump told Fox News that he plans to release “very, very specific” details from a recent physical, and he stated that Mrs. Clinton’s health is “an issue.”
“Something’s going on, but I just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail,” Trump told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” Trump on Monday brushed aside any speculation that Clinton might be replaced as the Democratic nominee, but said of the candidate’s health: “I think it’s an issue.”
Fox News has learned Trump plans to release those details during his appearance Thursday on “The Dr. Oz Show.”
Trump, meanwhile, continued to criticize Clinton for saying – before her health episode – that half his supporters fall into a “basket of deplorables.” Clinton has expressed regret for the remarks, but Trump said, “I think this is the biggest mistake of the political season.”
Even before Monday’s comments, Trump already had said both candidates should release detailed medical records.
Clinton’s campaign earlier released a July 2015 letter from Dr. Lisa Bardack describing Clinton as “a healthy 67-year-old female whose current medical conditions include hypothyroidism and seasonal pollen allergies.” The letter noted her elbow fracture in 2009 and concussion in 2012. Bardack detailed how Clinton, now 68, had to undergo “anticoagulation therapy” to dissolve a clot, and experienced “double vision for a period of time,” after the concussion.
But the campaign has not released detailed records beyond that.
Sunday’s episode, coupled with Trump’s release of information later this week, could revive calls for those documents.
An air of mystery surrounded the incident on Sunday. After Clinton left the ceremony, reporters following her on the campaign trail were prevented from leaving the media area for a period of time.
