US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has returned to campaigning after three-day rest at home from pneumonia.
“Sitting at home was pretty much the last place I wanted to be,” Clinton spoke to crowd in North Carolina on her campaign trail. Clinton’s speech focused mostly on her vision for American families and children rather than her rival, Republican candidate Donald Trump.
“I’m going to close my campaign the way I began my career,” Clinton said, “focused on opportunities for kids and fairness for families… I want to give Americans something to vote for, not just against.”
Concerns arose after Clinton was reportedly taken ill and stumbling to get into her vehicle at the 9/11 memorial event.
Three days after the event, Clinton’s personal physician Lisa Bardack, MD confirmed that Clinton’s condition has improved.
“She is recovering well with antibiotics and rest,” Bardack’s statement reads. “She continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as President of the United States.”
In response to this incident, Trump has released his medical report on The Dr Oz Show following a recent examination by his personal doctor, Dr Harold Bornstein. The report states that Trump is in “excellent physical health”.
“When you’re running for president of the United States, or maybe any other country, I think you have an obligation to be healthy,” Trump told the show’s host, Mehmet Oz.
“I just don’t think you can do the work if you’re not healthy; I don’t think you can represent the country properly if you’re not a healthy person.”
Bornstein claimed in December that Trump would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency”.
