FLINT, Michigan — Donald Trump had said he’d release more health information — and today, he has handed over a one-page summary of his recent physical on a doctor’s TV show. But his campaign won’t reveal what was disclosed. The show doesn’t air until tomorrow.

The physical was conducted last week by Dr. Harold Bornstein, the same doctor who wrote a glowing assessment of Trump’s health that has been widely questioned. Trump and Hillary Clinton have each 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 van at a 9/11 memorial ceremony.


Meanwhile,  Hillary Clinton’s doctor says she is recovering from her pneumonia and remains “healthy and fit to serve as President of the United States.”

The statement was part of medical information Clinton’s campaign released Wednesday after her pneumonia diagnosis last week.

The campaign says that Clinton’s physician found that the remainder of the Democratic presidential nominee’s complete physical exam was “normal” and she is in “excellent mental condition.”

Dr. Lisa Bardack adds that Clinton is “recovering well with antibiotics and rest” after she became overheated, dehydrated and felt dizzy at a 9/11 memorial ceremony on Sunday.

Clinton’s aides say she’ll return to the campaign trail on Thursday.
