Donald Trump is taking his health records to the doctor — Dr. Oz, that is.
Pressured in recent weeks to release his medical records, Trump will appear on the first week of The Dr. Oz Show’s eighth season, which kicks off next week. Trump will reportedly appear alongside his daughter, Ivanka Trump, in the hour-long interview with Dr. Mehmet Oz.
A teaser for the interview says that Trump “addresses why the health of the candidates has become such a serious issue in this campaign” and “reveals his own personal health regimen.” The interview is scheduled to air next Thursday.
Trump this week pledged to release his full medical records, walking back his earlier promise to only release the documents if Hillary Clinton did the same. With regards to his health, the 70-year-old candidate has only released a letter from his doctor, a document which was widely criticized for its adoption of Trump-like language.
“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual elected to the presidency,” Trump’s gastroenterologist wrote, adding that Trump’s blood pressure and lab results were “astonishingly excellent” and “his physical strength and stamina are extraordinary.”
Trump’s doctor also admitted last month in an interview with NBC that he had written the letter in just five minutes while a limousine sent by the GOP nominee waited outside of his Manhattan office, but he stood by his assessment.
Trump and Clinton’s health have been frequent topics on the campaign trail, with Trump frequently suggesting the 68-year-old former secretary of state is too frail for the job. Trump, meanwhile, has grabbed a lot of attention for his frequent meals of fried chicken and other fried foods, as well as his lack of sleep.
