Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said in an interview this week that he will release his full medical records. 

Trump told ABC News’s David Muir that if his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton makes her records public he’d do the same, “100 percent.”
 
{mosads}Asked why he wouldn’t go first, Trump responded, “I might do that,” adding, “In fact, now that you ask, I think I will do that.”
 
“I’d love to give full reports,” Trump said, adding later that he’d “love to give specifics.”
 
Trump noted that Dr. Harold Bornstein released a one-page statement in December declaring that if elected, Trump would “be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
 
However, NBC News reported recently that Trump’s long-time doctor spent five minutes writing the letter sitting while a limo sent by Trump’s campaign that remained parked outside his doctor’s office.
 
Clinton’s personal physician Dr. Lisa Bardack released a statement last year saying the former secretary of State was in “excellent physical condition and fit to serve” as president.
 
Trump, 70, has continued to make an issue regarding the health of Clinton, 68, questioning her “mental and physical stamina” in recent weeks, which her campaign dismissed.
