Clinton’s campaign whisked away a clearly weak Clinton, initially refusing to tell reporters anything, but eventually claiming that she had been “overheated” and later revealing that she was diagnosed with pneumonia two days earlier.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called in to Monday’s Fox & Friends” morning program to address Clinton’s controversial “basket of deplorables” comment Friday night, but was asked first for his reaction to the story revolving around her health issues.
“I hope she gets well soon,” Trump stated. “I don’t know what is going on, like you, I’m just, I see what I see. The coughing fit was a week ago so I assume that was pneumonia also.”
“So, something is going on, I just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail and we’ll be seeing her at the debate,” he added.
There are now rumors that the Democrat Party has started scrambling to find an alternative candidate to take over as the nominee should Clinton be unable to continue her campaign, Trump was asked if he had many any plans for facing a different candidate like Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine or Vice President Joe Biden.
“No, I don’t think they’ll replace her,” he responded. “We have to see what’s wrong, we have to see what’s wrong. But whatever it is, it is, and I’m ready.”
Trump then agreed that “health” had become a legitimate campaign issue and revealed that he recently had a physical performed, the results of which would be released when the report was complete.
The rest of the conversation, which can be seen below, focused on Clinton’s “deplorables” comment and other issues apart from her health woes.
Donald Trump chose to wish Hillary Clinton well.
This is far from the hate-filled, mean-spirited and sexist man we’ve seen him portrayed to be through mainstream media.
Trump offered a glimpse of his true self, compassionate, concerned and respectful of his opponent.
