Trump's doctor declares him in 'excellent physical health'

Trump's doctor declares him in 'excellent physical health'

Donald Trump taped an episode of the "Dr. Oz Show" in NY that will air on Thursday (September 15), in which he gave host Dr. Mehmet Oz a summary of a physical exam conducted last week.

His appearance followed questions about his rival Hillary Clinton's health after it was revealed she was suffering from pneumonia at the weekend. "And we have been concerned that the Trump Foundation may have engaged in some impropriety from that point of view", the elected Democratic official said.

Dr. Oz also read out the results of Trump's testosterone levels on the show. On Thursday, before the release of his records, Trump said he wouldn't necessarily have discussed his health if his results were worse. Clinton says she was "touched" by the concern about her well-being.

One of the most interesting moments of the interview was Trump's apparent embrace of expanding Medicaid, the federal health program for the poor that has been significantly ramped up under Obamacare and is typically a political punching bag for Republicans.

The letter, released Thursday, is more detailed than one he had released previously that consisted largely of platitudes. He began with a hilariously weird letter from a hilariously odd doctor.

"In summary, Mr. Trump is in excellent physical health", Bornstein wrote.

Clinton's campaign responded with a new letter from her doctor declaring her "fit to serve" as president and recovering well from her illness.

Megan Rapinoe kneels again, defying 'expectation' of US Soccer
Rapinoe said Sunday she had a meeting with Ellis and a media-relations official in which they "sort of talked through my process". This time she did so before the team's game against Netherlands at the Georgia Dome.


Bornstein reported that Trump's cholesterol level at 169; high-density lipoproteins, or HDL, at 63, and his low-density lipoproteins, or LDL, at 94. As a result, there are fewer painkiller overdose deaths in those states. He was similarly sued in 1999 by the estate of Janet Levin for causing her to become addicted to narcotics, which allegedly contributed to her death. A figure above 30 would make him obese. Bornstein repeatedly sought the return of the firearms, which he wanted to sell in order to remodel his kitchen.

In the press release with Trump's medical results, his campaign took a veiled shot at Clinton, noting the Republican was healthy enough to campaign "uninterrupted". He turned to Dr. Harold Bornstein.

"We have to help them through the Medicaid system", Mr. Trump told Mehmet Oz, MD, the host of the television show.

On Wednesday, the same day his daughter withered under questioning about his health care plan from Cosmopolitan magazine, Donald Trump recorded an interview on the Dr. Oz Show.

He concludes that Trump "Is in excellent physical health". When his poll numbers tanked in June, though, Lewandowski was out, thanks to pressure from Trump's children. "And I would say it should not be a prescription, it should not be done by prescription.You have women that just aren't able to go get a prescription. I don't know", Trump said. "Some would say why don't you change? Look at his health a little bit". He said his cholesterol is "quite good" and that he had "every single test" and they are good. "I think he's been - he's done a really good job for me".

After accusing Hillary Clinton of dodging the media, Donald Trump's kicked off a rally in New Hampshire - without journalists, who were delayed.
