In a short clip released by The Dr. Oz Show Wednesday afternoon, Trump, 70, revs up the crowd as he hands over two pages of test results after being questioned by the television physician in an interview to air in full Thursday.
“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?” Oz asks 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?” he says as he looks toward the crowd, which claps in approval. “I have no problem.”
The Republican presidential nominee then hands Oz two pages, explaining that one is the “report” and the other is from Lenox Hill Hospital, with results of tests “just done last week.”
According to a statement released by the daytime talk show, the two review the results of Trump’s physical examination performed last week by Dr. Harold Bornstein, M.D. of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, Trump’s longtime personal physician.
Despite the Dr. Oz reveal, an email from the Trump campaign tweeted by national reporters explain that the release of Trump’s complete medical records will be held off until another time.
“Both Dr. Oz and the release of medical records have been planned for a while and are separate,” they said in a statement. “The info will be released ‘shortly’ but is not the focus of the Dr. Oz appearance. That focus is Health in general, family, and a more conversation generally about well being – NOT an opportunity to review lab results and get into the weeds on Mr. Trump’s medical history.”
The 70-year-old Republican presidential nominee also talked with Oz about his physical activity, dietary habits and broader health-related issues faced by the country.
Does Donald Trump Rattle You?
While Oz said he wanted to ask Trump “pointed questions about his health,” he also shared that he wouldn’t press his guest hard for answers.
“It’s his decision,” Oz told FOX News Radio’s Kilmeade & Friends. “The metaphor for me is, this is a doctor’s office, the studio. So, I’m not going to ask him questions he doesn’t want to have answered.”
