Dr. Ben Carson expressed concern over the health of Hillary Clinton.
“Certainly as a person gets older, the number of medical conditions that we have to watch for increases, which is one of the reasons that we strongly suggest as you get older that you have at least an annual examination,” Carson began.
“If you’re going into a very important position like this, it’s critical,” he continued. “And that information should be something that we should have access to, because it’s very important in terms of making that decision.”
“Also, recognize that the presidency is not a nine-to-five job. It is extraordinarily grueling and you need to have everything going for you,” said Carson.
“And also the mental capacity. There are standardized mental examinations, many mental exams, about 30 questions. You could get a very quick assessment in terms of what’s going on,” Carson added.
Carson called on the Clinton campaign to disclose her medical records to the American people, which he believes are required in order to make a fully informed decision on such a “critical issue.”
“These are the kinds of things that should be open to the public in making such a critical decision,” he said.
