Trump Shows Some Medical Records on 'Dr. Oz Show'
The results of Trump's most recent physical also will feature in the episode, which taped Wednesday and airs Thursday.
Donald Trump will release medical records on Thursday's broadcast of The Dr. Oz Show, as well as discuss the results of his most recent physical examination, according to information revealed during Wednesday's taping of the show.
Aspects of Trump's personal health including his hormone levels, cardiovascular and respiratory well-being and his family medical history also will be revealed on the show.
"Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump sat down for an hourlong, one-on-one interview on The Dr. Oz Show with host Dr. Mehmet Oz to discuss his personal health, his views on major health care policy including their recently announced childcare plan and the major healthcare issues facing this country," reps for the show said Wednesday in a release.
"During the filming of the episode ... Mr. Trump shared with Dr. Oz the results of his physical examination performed last week by Dr. Harold Bornstein, M.D. of Lennox Hill Hospital, whom has been Mr. Trump’s personal physician for many years," the statement continued.
A clip released by the show later on Wednesday included the exchange between the Republican presidential candidate and the TV doctor, in which Trump appears to hand over his medical records, which he had with him:
Dr. Oz: “If your health is as strong as it seems from your review of systems, why not share your medical records? Why not let people see?”
Trump: “Well, I really have no problem in doing it. I have it right here. Should I do it? I don’t care. Should I do it? It’s two letters. One is the report and the other is from Lenox Hill Hospital.”
Dr. Oz: “May I see them?”
Trump: “Yeah, sure.”
The GOP presidential candidate has been criticized for failing to release personal documents, including his tax returns and medical records, during the course of his campaign. Trump is still the first presidential nominee in decades to withhold his tax returns.
The disclosure comes as Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton recovers from pneumonia.
In a second clip from the episode, Trump was asked about his "stamina." Telling Dr. Oz that he is "just about the same age as Ronald Reagan," he told the host that he's confident about his health if voted into office.
"I feel as good today as I did when I was 30," Trump said.
On Thursday morning, just hours before Trump's appearance on Dr. Oz aired, the show released a third clip in which the candidate talked about his weight. Oz said Trump is 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 236 pounds, but he thinks Trump's "body surface area and BMI is high."
"It’s probably close to 30, which is sort of the barrier for most people," Oz continued. "Do your doctors or your family ever give you a hard time about your weight?”
Trump admitted he would like to lose some weight but that's been hard for him.
“Yeah, I think I could lose a little weight. I’ve always been a little bit this way," he said. "You know — I’ve sort of always been, I was probably a good swimmer. But I’ve always been this way. I think that if I had one thing I’d like to lose weight. It’s tough because of the way I live. But the one thing I would like to do is be able to drop 15 to 20 pounds. It would be good.”
