Clinton canceled campaign events after being diagnosed with pneumonia


Hillary Clinton cancelled her planned campaign swing through California on Monday and Tuesday following a health episode at the 9/11 memorial on Sunday, according to a statement from her campaign. Clinton was scheduled to attend three fundraisers and tape an appearance on the "Ellen" show.

Clinton abruptly left the 9/11 event early on Sunday after feeling "overheated." Her campaign later revealed she had been diagnosed with pneumonia two days earlier.

Did Trump know first?

Rep. Peter King told The Washington Post  that Donald Trump was among the first to know Clinton was sick.

"It was actually Trump who told me what was going on," King told the Post. "He leaned over and told me that 'Hillary wasn't feeling well.'"

Trump did not comment publicly on Clinton's health Sunday.

A statement from Clinton's doctor says the presidential candidate was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday and was put on antibiotics.

"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," Lisa R. Bardack, Clinton's physician, told CNBC. "She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule ... I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely."

Here's Bardack's full statement.

Clinton was seen in front of her daughter's apartment just before noon Sunday after leaving the ceremony early.

The presidential candidate waved to reporters and said "I'm feeling great. It's a beautiful day in New York."

After leaving her daughter's apartment, Clinton was driven to her home in Chappaqua, New York.

Here's the original statement from the campaign shortly after she left.

She stayed at the New York memorial for about 90 minutes before leaving to her daughter Chelsea's apartment, where she started feeling "much better."

A  Fox News reporter,  citing an unnamed source, said Clinton had "fainted" and experienced a "medical episode" before leaving. Those reports were not confirmed. 

The temperature in New York City was roughly 79 degrees at 9 a.m. Sunday,  according to AccuWeather.

Here's the tweet that started a firestorm of rumors.
