Trump Promises To Release Report On His Health This Week After Clinton Stumble

On the heels of Hillary Clinton revealing a pneumonia diagnosis after stumbling at the 9/11 memorial ceremony on Sunday in New York City, Donald Trump said he plans to release a report on his health this week.

In a Monday morning call-in on CNBC, Trump said, “I saw what was going on with [Clinton] and I said, ‘You know, I’m going to go do something, and I actually took a physical last week and probably, I guess this week, will release the results of it.”

Trump also wished his 2016 rival well, saying, “I want her to get better, I want her to get out there.”

Trump and Clinton have so far provided a limited view of their health histories to the public. Trump’s Manhattan doctor released a letter claiming that if elected, the real estate mogul would be the healthiest president ever. A doctor for Clinton offered a somewhat more detailed picture of the former secretary of state’s health in late July.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
