Trump touts his health report; Clinton says she’s ‘touched’ by the concern for hers


The latest stories from the Associated Press on the health of the Republican and Democratic Presidential candidates:

Trump says giving speeches is exercise

WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump says that standing at a podium, delivering his signature rally speeches, is one of the ways he stays healthy on the campaign trail.

The Republican presidential nominee says that delivering his speeches is “a really healthy act.” He was appearing on “The Dr. Oz Show,” in an interview that was taped Wednesday and broadcast Thursday.

Trump said giving speech is “a lot of work” and he’s “using a lot of motion”

He said: “I guess that’s a form of exercise?”

Trump says he’d like to lose weight

WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump says his health is good, but he’d like to lose 15 pounds.

Trump told “Fox and Friends” today that he’s 6-foot-3 and 236 pounds — giving him a body mass index falling into the “overweight” range. Trump also taped an episode of “The Dr. Oz Show,” which will air today.

Trump said his cholesterol is “quite good” and that he had “every single test” and they are good.

The Republican presidential nominee has been talking about his health for the past couple of days, as Democratic rival Hillary Clinton is about to get back on the campaign trail after a bout of pneumonia.

Clinton ‘touched’ by concern over her health

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton says she wants to respond to “legitimate questions people have” about her health. Clinton says she was “touched” by the concern about her well-being.

That’s what she tells the Tom Joyner radio show in a taped interview broadcast on Thursday morning.

Clinton released a letter from her doctor on Wednesday declaring her “fit to serve” as president.

She has faced criticism about a lack of transparency after not revealing that she had been diagnosed pneumonia until a video showed her stumbling after abruptly leaving a 9/11 ceremony.

Rival Donald Trump is expected to make public more information about his health on Thursday. Clinton said he’s failed to “even meet the most minimalistic standards” for disclosure.
