Hillary Clinton created quite a media frenzy after "fainting" during the 9/11 anniversary ceremony. After news of her "overheat"condition became available to public knowledge, both her supporters and critics expressed their concern about her health. This also brought a lot of questions from people whether she is fit enough to become the next chief executive of the country.

Bestselling author and speaker John Durant was among the first to express their doubts over Clinton's health.

The tweet generated a lot of discussion on Twitter and Reddit with both sides trading barbs and valid points against each other. Clinton's critics, however, used it to point out that Trump had been right all along in his observation that Clinton didn't have the energy to become the President of the United States. In a 2015 interview on ABC's "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos, Trump said that a president's job includes dealing with difficult people, which requires energy. He added that Clinton has a very low energy to become the president. "Somebody like Jeb, and others that are running against me — and by the way Hillary is another one. I mean, Hillary is a person who doesn’t have the strength or the stamina, in my opinion, to be president," he said. "She doesn’t have strength or stamina. She’s not a strong enough person to be president," Trump concluded. Trump's past observation further fueled rumors about Clinton's poor health and service inability when her campaign group stayed silent about why she left the 9/11 ceremony. One tweet stated that the Clinton camp left the press abruptly.


The Clinton camp released an official statement a few hours after the incident saying that the presidential candidate was diagnosed with pneumonia and was advised by her physicians to take medications and change her schedule.

Katie Packer, a GOP strategist, said that the American public has the right to know about the medical conditions of each presidential bet.

"They are obligated to release full medical records and full tax returns to the American people. And the media, party leaders and American people should settle for nothing less," she added.
