Hillary Clinton will release additional medical information this week, a spokesman said Monday, after her campaign was criticized for waiting to reveal that she had pneumonia.
The 68-year-old Clinton left early from a Sept. 11 ceremony in New York City on Sunday morning, looking unsteady and requiring support to enter a van. The Democratic presidential nominee's doctor later said she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday and got overheated at the event, but was "recovering nicely."
Campaign spokesman Brian Fallon told MSNBC that Clinton would release more medical records this week, after broad criticism of the campaign for not disclosing the pneumonia diagnosis earlier. Clinton's Republican opponent Donald Trump and conservative media outlets have speculated about Clinton's possible health issues, though she faces no known ailments other than the pneumonia.
Clinton suffers from "no other undisclosed condition," Fallon told MSNBC. He added that she will go back on the campaign trail later this week after she canceled a planned trip to California to rest.
"I think that in retrospect we could have handled it better, in terms of providing more information more quickly," Fallon said about the aftermath of Clinton leaving the event Sunday.
The 70-year-old Trump, a noted junk food enthusiast, has also promised to release more health information this week. He told CNBC on Monday morning that he hopes Clinton gets well soon.
Trump would become the oldest president ever elected, while Clinton would be the second oldest.
