"I just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail, and we'll be seeing her at the debate," Trump said in a phone interview with Fox News.

Asked if the health of the candidates was an issue, Trump said: "I think it's an issue. In fact ... this last week I took a physical and .... when the numbers come in I'll be releasing very, very specific numbers."
