Donald Trump was expected in Mexico Wednesday to meet its president, in a move aimed at showing that despite the Republican White House hopeful's hardline opposition to illegal immigration he is no close-minded xenophobe. Trump stunned the political establishment when he announced late Tuesday that he was making the surprise trip south of the border to meet with President Enrique Pena Nieto, a sharp Trump critic.

Donald Trump says he took a physical last week

The health of both candidates has become a major issue in the 2016 campaign

(CNN) —  

Donald Trump said Monday that he had a medical exam last week and will release the results “when the numbers come in,” as the health of both major party presidential candidates has been thrust to the fore of the 2016 campaign following Hillary Clinton’s recent pneumonia diagnosis.

Trump told Fox News during an interview that health is now “an issue” in the 2016 campaign, pointing to his recent physical exam.

“This last week, I took a physical, and I’ll be releasing, when the numbers come in, hopefully they are going to be good. I think they are going to be good, I feel great, but when the numbers come in, I’ll be releasing very specific numbers,” Trump said.

Trump was previously scheduled to appear on the “Dr. Oz Show” on Thursday, along with his daughter Ivanka, though it’s unclear what the specific details are for that appearance.

Trump also addressed his opponent’s medical situation, saying he hopes Clinton “gets well soon” after she was forced to leave a September 11, 2001, terrorist attack memorial service Sunday because of “overheating,” according to her campaign. That episode subsequently led to her campaign revealing that Clinton had been diagnosed with pneumonia Friday.

“Well, I really just don’t know, I hope she gets well soon,” Trump said when asked what caused Clinton’s episode.

“I don’t know what’s going on. I’m like you. I just see what I see. The coughing fit was a week ago, so I assume that was pneumonia also. I would have to think it would have been, so something is going on, but I just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail, and we’ll be seeing her at the debate.”

Trump’s fitness for office has received scrutiny during the campaign in addition to Clinton’s health. Trump and his surrogates have repeatedly questioned Clinton’s health and stamina throughout the campaign trail.

Trump’s own health was questioned following media reports into his physician Dr. Harold Bornstein and a note he wrote in 2015 vouching for the real estate mogul’s health, which other doctors have said includes medically incorrect terms and an unprofessional conclusion.
