With health now an election issue, both US presidential candidates have moved to show their medical fitness.

And in an act of classic Trump showmanship he chose to do it on a chat show.

In a recorded interview with TV medic Dr Oz, Trump pulled out a summary said to reveal he is in good shape although overweight.

Dr. Oz asked: “If elected, at age 70, you will be the oldest person to ever enter the Oval Office. Why do you think you have the stamina for the job?”

Donald Trump responded: “Yeah, just about the same age as Ronald Reagan and Hillary is a year behind me. I would say, just based on my life, I mean I’ve had… I’ve actually… I don’t know if this makes sense, I feel as good today as I did when I was 30.”

The TV interview, to be broadcast today (Sept.15) is said to have given the appearance of transparency, but critics say it fell far short of detailed information about Trump’s health.

I'd vote for a sick, dying/dead Hillary Clinton before I'd vote for a perfectly healthy and living Donald Trump
