The bungled issue by the Clinton campaign gave Trump a pass, at least thus far, on his own medical condition. Thus far all Trump has disclosed is a ridiculous letter signed by Dr. Harold Bornstein, a gastroenterologist by training. The letter, supposedly written by the doctor in 5 minutes, doesn't sound like it is written by a medical doctor or any professional for that matter. It repeatedly employs Trump-type hyperbole and exaggeration. The letter declares that Trump's health is "astonishingly excellent" and his "physical strength and stamina are extraordinary." Dr. Bornstein also wrote that "[i]f elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency." When asked to justify the hyperbole, Dr. Bornstein said "I like that sentence to be quite honest with you and all the rest of them are either sick or dead." Of course, the comment focused on the health of a presidential candidate at the time of that person's election, not that person's current health, but facts never seem very relevant to people who have boarded the Trump train. Dr. Bornstein admits that he's jumped on that train explaining "I like Donald Trump because I think he likes me. That's the same reasoning Trump cites for his deep affection for the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin who has his political opponents killed.
Unlike matters related to her health, Hillary Clinton has disclosed publicly her tax returns. In doing so she is following the tradition every presidential candidate has followed for decades. Trump though tis breaking that tradition. While initially promising to disclose his tax records, Trump has reneged on that promise claiming that he is under audit and therefore can't release the tax returns. (Of course, an audit doesn't stop the release of tax records.) Trump's campaign, however, can't or won'teven produce the IRS record notifying him of the audit and they won't release tax forms from the years before the audit. It could well be that Trump's tax forms will demonstrate that Trump pays little, if any taxes, and claims of his great wealth (which would produce substantial income that would have to be reported) simply are not true. Or the forms could show that Trump has received substantial business loans from the Russian investors and even government officials.
Voters have a right to know potential financial conflicts of interest that might be revealed on tax forms. They also have a right to know the medical condition of those running for President. Disclosure of tax forms and medical records should be a requirement of running for President.
