Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump sat down for an hour-long, one-on-one interview on “The Dr. Oz Show” with host Dr. Mehmet Oz to discuss his personal health, his views on major health care policy including their recently announced child care plan and the major health care issues facing this country.

During the filming of the episode, which will air Thursday, Sept. 15. Trump shared with Dr. Oz the results of his physical examination performed last week by Dr. Harold Bornstein of Lenox Hill Hospital, who has been Trump’s personal physician for many years.

Additionally, as all physicians do when seeing a patient for the first time, Dr. Oz took Trump through a full review of systems including the following:
· Nervous system
· Head and neck
· Hormone levels
· Cardiovascular health and related medications
· Respiratory health
· Gastrointestinal health
· Bladder or Prostate health
· Dermatological health
· History of cancer
· Family medical history – occurrence of Alzheimer’s or dementia, heart disease, cancer in relatives

Ivanka Trump then joins her father to speak further about the childcare and maternity leave initiative that the Trump campaign announced Tuesday night.

Trump takes advantage of an opportunity to put pressure on his opponent Democratic presidential nominee who was diagnosed with pneumonia last Friday, Sept. 9, 2016. On Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016, Clinton left the 15th anniversary 9/11 commemoration ceremony in New York in haste.

Video footage of Clinton’s departure that shows her appearing to stumble as she entered her van dominated the airwaves.

“Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen,” Clinton campaign spokesperson Nick Merrill said in a statement Sunday morning. “During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better.”

Clinton arrived at her daughter’s apartment some time later and departed shortly after for her home in Chappaqua, New York, where she was examined by Dr. Lisa R. Bardack.

“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia,” said Dr. Bardac. “She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now rehydrated and recovering nicely.”
