Donald Trump today handed over a one-page summary of his recent physical on a doctor’s television show but the campaign won’t reveal what was disclosed.
Trump, ever the showman, appeared on “The Dr. Oz Show” in what was billed by the campaign as a discussion about his general well-being and his family’s medical history.
But reversing what aides had said earlier today, Trump handed host Mehmet Oz one-page of results from a physical conducted last week by his longtime physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein.
The show does not air until tomorrow and the campaign declined to immediately disclose the results.
But a release from the show said that “Dr. Oz took Mr. Trump though a full review of his systems” including his nervous system, cardiovascular health, prostate health and family medical history.
Both Trump and his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, have been under increased pressure to release detailed medical records, especially after Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia and was captured on video stumbling getting into a waiting van at a 9/11 memorial ceremony Sunday.
Bornstein had previously written a note declaring the 70-year-old Trump, if elected, would be the healthiest president in history.
The campaigns of both Trump and Clinton, 68, have said that their candidates would be releasing detailed medical records in the coming days.
The appearance with Oz came hours before Trump was to visit Flint, Michigan to condemn the government failure which led to that city’s water crisis. The city’s mayor made clear she did not want him to come.
It’s the Republican presidential nominee’s first visit to the poverty-stricken city since lead was detected in its water supply in April 2014.
He is expected to visit a water plant and a church while denouncing the crisis that affected 100,000 people after the city left Detroit’s water supply and started using improperly treated Flint River water.
Trump’s visit to Flint, like his one last month to flood-stricken Louisiana, is bound to produce images aimed at persuading Americans that the celebrity businessman can appear presidential.
It also highlights his aims to compete in the industrial Midwest, thought polls have him down in Michigan, which last went Republican in 1988.
