Trump provides medical summary to Dr. Oz, but doesn’t discuss details

FLINT, Michigan — Donald Trump on Wednesday handed over a one-page summary of his recent physical on a doctor’s television show — but the campaign won’t reveal what was disclosed.

Trump, ever the showman, appeared on “The Dr. Oz Show” in what was billed by the campaign as a discussion about his general well-being and his family’s medical history. But reversing what aides had said earlier Wednesday, Trump handed host Mehmet Oz one page of results from a physical conducted last week by his longtime physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein.

The show does not air until Thursday and the campaign declined to immediately disclose the results. But a release from the show said that “Dr. Oz took Mr. Trump though a full review of his systems” including his nervous system, cardiovascular health, prostate health and family medical history.

Both Trump and his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, have been under increased pressure to release detailed medical records, especially after Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia and was captured on video stumbling getting into a waiting van at a 9/11 memorial ceremony Sunday. Bornstein had previously written a note declaring the 70-year-old Trump, if elected, would be the healthiest president in history. The campaigns of both Trump and Clinton, 68, have said that their candidates would be releasing detailed medical records in the coming days.

The appearance with Oz came hours before Trump was to visit Flint, Michigan, to condemn the government failure which led to that city’s water crisis. The city’s mayor made clear she did not want him to come.

It’s the Republican presidential nominee’s first visit to the poverty-stricken city since lead was detected in its water supply in April 2014. He is expected to visit a water plant and a church while denouncing the crisis that affected 100,000 people after the city left Detroit’s water supply and started using improperly treated Flint River water.

Flint Mayor Karen Weaver, a Democrat, condemned the visit, saying the campaign had not offered to help the city and his visit would be a distraction.

“Flint is focused on fixing the problems caused by lead contamination of our drinking water, not photo ops,” said Weaver, who supports Hillary Clinton, Trump’s opponent. Clinton visited Flint in February.
