Ben Carson: ‘Elderly’ candidates like Trump and Clinton should release health records

  |   World News

Ben Carson, the former presidential candidate and current Donald Trump adviser, said Wednesday that "elderly" presidential nominees like Trump and Hillary Clinton should release their medical history. "I think that somebody who is running for president of the United States, particularly if they're elderly — and that would include both major candidates — should disclose their medical history. And I'm not talking about from a year ago or two years ago. I'm talking about currently," Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe" on Wednesday. If he wins, 70-year-old Trump would become the oldest president ever elected. In December, Trump released a four-paragraph letter signed by Dr. Harold N. Bornstein of Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan that contained few specifics but declared that Trump would "be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency."
