The Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, will make an appearance on “The Dr. Oz Show” on Thursday, the Republican presidential nominee’s campaign organization said . . .
According to a press release from the daytime show, Trump shared the results of his recent physical with Dr. Mehmet Oz. The show’s host “conducted a complete review of physical systems” during their hour long sit-down, which was taped in front of a live studio audience on Wednesday in New York City.
“As all physicians do when seeing a patient for the first time,” the release said, “Dr. Oz took Mr. Trump through a full review of systems including . . .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 [and] family medical history.”
On Tuesday, the Trump campaign said the real estate mogul would not be releasing any medical records during the interview.
Dr. Oz said he hoped to ask Trump “pointed questions” about his health, but vowed not to push the GOP candidate.
Dr. Oz said inter alia:
“The metaphor for me is, this is a 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.”
In December, Trump’s personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, declared Trump would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” in a widely mocked letter that serves as the only public record of the White House hopeful’s health.
Bornstein later told NBC News that he wrote the letter at Trump’s request in five minutes while a limo sent by the candidate waited outside the doctor’s Manhattan office.
In reference to Dr. Harold Bornstein’s letter describing Trump’s health state, Dr. Oz said, “I want to see if I can make some sense out of that, the letter. It’s a little out of the ordinary.” Reports say that Trump’s latest physical was performed by Dr. Bornstein as well.
Trump’s decision to release his health state to the public (despite the unconventional but unique way through Dr Oz’s TV show) is predicated on his opponent – the Democratic presidential nominee, Hilary Clinton’s medical situation when she became faint, wobbled and “lost her balance” at the 2016 9/11 memorial service in New York. The GOP nominee said that the health of presidential nominees is now a campaign issue and also said he’ll be releasing his medical records soon, specific numbers, he said – although nobody anticipated he will be doing that through a TV show.
