Donald Trump Responds to Hillary Clinton's Pneumonia Scare: 'It's Quite Sad'
Donald Trump has spoken out on Hillary Clinton's health scare a day after his rival was seen on video nearly falling and being helped into a waiting car.
After hours of speculation and initial suggestions from the Clinton camp that heat exhaustion was the reason she left a 9/11 memorial event early and appeared wobbly Sunday, the Clinton camp revealed their candidate is suffering from pneumonia.
On Monday, Donald Trump told CNBC that he finds Clinton's health issues "sad."

"It's quite sad," Trump said. "I hope she gets well soon."
For weeks, the billionaire has been fueling the fire of theories about Clinton's health that date back years. Now that at least one current health concern of Clinton's has been revealed, Trump is saying "I told you so" even offering — maybe — to release his own health records.
"I saw what was going on with her and I said, 'You know, I'm going to go do something and I actually took a physical last week and probably, I guess this week, will release the results of it," the nominee said.
Trump continued: "It is a very tough schedule. You go from one city, you go to Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida, you know, all over... It's grueling work. There's no question about it."
After Sunday's stumble outside the 9/11 memorial, Clinton was taken to her daughter’s Manhattan apartment to recuperate, her staff said.
Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton's personal doctor, said in a statement that the candidate "has been experiencing a cough related to allergies," and she had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday "during follow-up evaluation of her prolonged cough."
Clinton was being treated with antibiotics and had been "advised to rest and modify her schedule," the doctor said.
After she was escorted from the memorial service, her campaign issued a statement saying, “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 spokesperson Nick Merrill said.
"During the ceremony, she felt overheated so [she] departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better." Temperatures were in the 80s with high humidity Sunday.
The candidate stepped out of Chelsea Clinton’s apartment building around noon, smiling and waving to reporters and supporters gathered outside.
She did not speak to journalists. In response to a shouted question asking if she felt better, Clinton said, “Yes, thank you, very much.”
Clinton also canceled events Monday and Tuesday to take time to rest.
