Hillary Clinton won’t be taking a neurocognitive test — and releasing the results to the public — telling a reporter “there’s no need for that” --even after collapsing as she was leaving a 9/11 memorial event last week in Manhattan.
Clinton made the comment, suggesting she will not be releasing any further medical information this presidential campaign, in an interview Wednesday with Florida’s WFTS ABC Action News.
“Some doctors have said, because of your age, as well as your opponent’s age, that you could be at higher risk for dementia or even Alzheimer’s and have suggested that you take some neurocognitive test,” ABC affiliate reporter Sarina Fazina said to Clinton. “Would you be willing to do that?”
“I’m very sorry I got pneumonia,” Clintons replied, letting out a hearty laugh. “I’m very glad that antibiotics took care of it. And that’s behind us now. I’ve met the standard that everybody running for president has met in terms of releasing information about my health.”
She added, “I have to say, my opponent has not met that standard. So I am very happy that we have put out all the information that there is — that reflects on my health. And I am physically, mentally healthy and fit to be president of the United States.”
Asked specifically whether she’d submit to testing, Clinton said no.
