Hillary Clinton’s doctor has confirmed that the US Democratic presidential candidate has pneumonia.
Clinton became overheated and dehydrated while at a 9/11 commemoration ceremony Sunday in New York City. She was seen stumbling as she departed early and recuperated at daughter Chelsea’s New York apartment.
Dr. Lisa Bardack said “Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow-up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule.”
Clinton, 68, had planned to fly out to California on Monday to continue fundraising, with an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show fit in there somewhere.
Republican rival Donald Trump has in the past declared Clinton to be unfit for the role of president, as she “lacks the mental and physical stamina.”
