Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton and her Republican rival Donald Trump have both been declared medically fit by their minders as the race to occupy White House intensifies.
A letter released by Clinton’s doctor declaring her fit for the presidency reads thus; “Clinton, 68, is healthy and fit to serve as president and is currently recovering from non-contagious, bacterial pneumonia,” the letter by her physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack read.
The announcements came as Clinton spent a third day resting at her home in Chappaqua, New York, after falling ill on Sunday morning as she left a Sept. 11 memorial in New York City.
In a related development, Trump’s campaign adviser Sarah Huckabee Sanders told MSNBC that “Trump, 70, knows he could stand to lose a few pounds but otherwise is in great health”.
