Donald Trump: Dr. Oz to interview presidential candidate about his health
Donald Trump will talk about his health in a television interview with Dr. Oz airing this Thursday.
Mehmet Oz said Tuesday that he will ask Trump, 70, “pointed questions” when he sits down with the GOP nominee on Wednesday for a taping of The Dr. Oz Show. Oz also pledged not to ask Trump “questions he doesn’t want to be answered.”
Trump is expected to share the results of a physical he received last week, as well as other new details about his health.
The interview comes amid renewed speculation over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s health after the 68-year-old fell ill at a 9/11 memorial service on Sunday and subsequently revealed she had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday.
Clinton’s campaign has promised to release more medical records this week.
In an interview with Brian Kilmeade on the Fox News Radio program Kilmeade & Friends, Oz said he will give his professional assessment on Trump’s medical records on the show, but added that it was Trump’s “decision” whether he shares any “embarrassing things” the records may contain.
“The metaphor for me is it’s the doctor’s office, the studio. So I’m not going to ask him questions he doesn’t want to have answered, and I also don’t want to talk about anybody else. We’re not going to be talking about Secretary Clinton, for sure,” Oz said. “And I don’t want to talk about things that are outside of the health purview.”
Oz noted he has also invited Clinton to discuss her health on his show.
