Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who was diagnosed with pneumonia, will return to the campaign trail on Thursday after she missed three days’ worth of events due to the disease, media reported.
The rival of Donald Trump in the upcoming election, Hillary abruptly left a 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York on Sunday morning, with her campaign telling reporters that she had felt “overheated.”
Hillary returned home in Chappaqua, New York, after recovering at her daughter Chelsea’s Manhattan apartment. Her doctor released a statement saying she had been diagnosed with pneumonia the preceding Friday.
She also called off plans to fly to California on Monday morning for two days of fundraising, campaign events and an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’s talk show.
Republican nominee Donald Trump has repeatedly questioned Clinton’s health, telling supporters last month she “lacks the mental and physical stamina” to serve as the President and fight ISIS.
On Friday, Hillary was diagnosed with pneumonia, but she carried on with a full schedule that same day. She also held a two-hour long meeting with national security experts, a press conference, conducted a lengthy television interview and attended a fundraiser later that night.
Hillary had decided to limit the information to her family members and close aides. She concerned that the illness was not a crucial issue for voters and that it might be twisted and exploited by her opponents.
A senior aide on Monday said Hillary is suffering from no health ailments other than pneumonia, and the Democratic presidential nominee is expected to return to the campaign trail as early as mid-week.
