Clinton Camp Dismisses Trump Challenge on Health Records
A Clinton aide said the campaign will not be releasing any more records. Clinton, 68, released a two-page letter last month from her doctor that said the Democratic nominee is in “excellent physical condition and fit to serve as President of the United States.”
The Clinton campaign points out that the letter Clinton released has much more detail and specifics, like cholesterol levels, medical history and medications, and they argue there is no comparison to the letter Trump released and that Trump has not disclosed any meaningful medical information.
Trump in December released a four-paragraph letter from Dr. Harold Bornstein that called Trump’s health “astonishingly excellent” and claimed the 70-year-old would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
Bornstein — who says he has been Trump’s physician since 1980 — told NBC News Friday that he wrote the letter in just 5 minutes while a limo waited outside his office, but the doctor said he had been thinking about the letter all day.
