Her Republican opponent,Donald Trump,reacted by saying he hopes Clinton gets well soon.”I hope she gets well and gets back on the trail and we’ll be seeing her in the debate,” Trump said, referring to their scheduled first face-to-face encounter on September 26.
Last year,Trump released a letter from a physician claiming he would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency”which the Republicans are putting forward in stark contrast with Hillary Clinton’s concussion incident of 2012 when questioned about stamina of both the candidates. Although the doctor in Trump’s case has since acknowledged he dashed off the note in five minutes while a Trump campaign limousine waited nearby and Hillary has been given a clean chit by her doctors.
Either way, the fact that Trump at 68 and Hillary at 70 are one of the oldest candidates contesting the US elections and so the pressure is inevitably building on both of them to make their health records public. (VOA)
