Donald Trump says he plans to release his full medical records


Donald Trump said Monday in an interview with ABC's David Muir that he plans to release his full medical records. 

So far, neither of the presidential candidates have released their medical records, so this would be a first. 

During his interview in Ohio, Trump said that if Democratic rival Hillary Clinton made her medical history public, he would follow suit. 

Muir then pressed Trump, questioning why he wouldn't just make the first move. 

"I might do that, I might do that," Trump said. "In fact, now that you ask, I think I will do that."

Trump added that he believes the American people deserve to know more about Clinton's medical history. 

This comes just as Clinton's rally in Cleveland, Ohio, was interrupted by a coughing fit

So far, 70-year-old Trump has only released a letter from Dr. Harold Bornstein, who has been his doctor since 1980. 

In that letter Bornstein wrote, "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual elected to the presidency."

However, in an interview with NBC last month, Bornstein acknowledged that he wrote the letter in about five minutes. Bornstein added that he still stands by his assessment of Trump's health. 

According to ABC News, Trump's running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence agreed that the presidential candidate is in good health.

"I'll tell you, this man is a few years older than me. I'm 57 years old," Pence told ABC News. "I can hardly keep up with the man."
