“Ms. Clinton was a cough associated with allergies. On Friday (i.e. two days before fainting – “MK”), after further tests she was diagnosed with pneumonia,” said Dr. Fox is a Mess. According to her, former U.S. Secretary of state had been prescribed antibiotics and recommended plenty of rest, and change my schedule. It is known that Clinton has canceled a scheduled on 12 and 13 September trip to California.

With 68-year-old Hillary has happened such incidents. In 2012, she fainted and got a concussion. Then the state Department called the cause of intestinal infection. We also know that the democratic candidate had surgery to remove the clot, which was conducted in 2012. According to her personal physician, Clinton already recovered from the effects of treatment.
The topic of health, Clinton became a target for her main rival in pursuit of the presidency. Republican Donald trump, who, by the way, older than Clinton for two years, expressed doubt that her physical strength will be enough to run the country. However, paradoxically, after the incident at the ceremony in new York, trump has forbidden his campaign staff to comment on health Clinton. Anyone who disobeys this prohibition, dismissal threatens.
Will Clinton out of the race for health reasons? About it now talks to the Western media.
Interviewed by “MK” experts believe that the Democratic party will not be able to remove her forcibly. “It must be her personal decision, – said the “MK” senior researcher of the sector of internal and external policy of the USA, IMEMO ran Victoria Zhuravleva. – The fact of illness attracts the attention of the electorate… With its rating there was dual situation. On the one hand, Americans are imbued with sympathy for the human problems of the candidate. For example, it was with Vice President Joseph Biden, when his son died. He was over-the-top ratings. Sympathy characteristic of the American voters, and it affects their attitude to the candidates. On the other hand, the weakness of the Clinton allows the Republicans to point out its age. Although the candidate does not possess youth, but the question of age raised it in connection with Hillary.”
In American history there was no case when a candidate has withdrawn from elections at a crucial stage, so run-in mechanism to search for him there is no replacement, experts stress. “Really only to be persuaded to leave the very Clinton – said in a conversation with “MK” chief researcher of the Institute of USA and Canada studies, Vladimir Vassilyev. If she withdraws, in the absence of mechanisms can be convened a Congress of a narrow circle of the Democratic party. Probably it will be headed by Barack Obama, and then he can someone to offer. Most likely, he will nominate a Biden. Then your rights may declare and Bernie Sanders, who let me remind you that he was second in the primaries. This additional split in the camp of the Democrats. It is the lack of precedent gives rise to such a situation. The Democrats have been on a powder keg with a lit fuse… If Hillary something happens before the election, then you will not be able to do something or fix it… This September 11 election campaign.”
The expert noted that the cause of syncope Clinton will probably become stressful. Trump moves the situation to the fact that candidates must provide the public with the history of their diseases, – said Vladimir Vasiliev. – There is such an example: in 2008, McCain presented a certificate with a volume of 1300 pages.
Trump also said that he is ready to present the history of the disease, if it will make Clinton. But she and her staff this idea categorically rejected. Often it is accused of being a liar, and if they published such data, it is likely to once again get caught in some kind of lie: previously, her personal physician said that she has perfect health.
Can Clinton continue to fight for the presidency with pneumonia? With this issue of “MK” asked the specialist. “With proper treatment the problem can be rented for the day, explained to us the doctor of the highest category, pulmonologist Sergei Uryasev. – To remove the most severe symptoms, put on his feet. Can be cured completely in 21 days. As for fainting, it is, in my opinion, just the age is a big load.”
