Public personalities must disclose important details of their personal life. Especially if it affects their public responsibilities. This includes their health. Tough campaign efforts can make their health deteriorate if not careful. They are still human beings after all. Here’s what Trump has to say for Hillary Clinton by Rappler:
Change of Character
Trump is unusually subdued in his first public comments. On the news that Clinton has pneumonia. A diagnosis revealed by her campaign after she fell sick at a 9/11 memorial ceremony Sunday. She had to leave abruptly.
WASHINGTON, DC, USA – Donald Trump said on Monday, September 12. He hopes his Democratic White House rival Hillary Clinton recovers from pneumonia. Then announces that he would be releasing details of his own health soon.
The Republican presidential nominee was unusually subdued in his first public comments. On the news that Clinton has pneumonia. A diagnosis revealed by her campaign after she fell sick at a 9/11 memorial ceremony Sunday. She had to leave abruptly.
“Something is going on. I just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail. He hopes to see her at the debate,” he said in a phone interview with Fox News.
The 70-year-old real estate magnate said he had a physical last week. He will release the details once test results are back.
“I think they are going to be good. I feel great. But when the numbers come in, I’ll be releasing very, very specific numbers,” he said.
So far, Trump has only released a brief letter from his physician that was light on details. If elected, he would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
Strategy or Sincerity?
Respect for Clinton
Two US media outlets reported early Monday that Trump’s campaign staffers had been ordered to be respectful about Clinton’s illness . They are told not post anything on the topic on social media.
Any violation of the order could result in termination; CNN said, citing unnamed Trump campaign sources.
Bloomberg reports a similar story, quoting “people familiar with the planning.”
Trump is known for his relentless and personal attacks. He had promoted the idea in recent weeks that his 68-year-old Democratic opponent has serious health problems. It might affect her fitness to lead.
Social Media Sensor
The internet is awash with unsubstantiated. It claims that Clinton may have a brain tumor, Parkinson’s or dementia.
Clinton was forced to cancel a California fundraising trip on Monday and Tuesday. It is now eight weeks from Election Day.
The first presidential debate is scheduled for September 26.
