She's Back

Former Secretary of State and Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will be back on the campaign trail Thursday after taking three days off to recover from allergies overheating flu pneumonia. 

Jennifer Palmieri, Clinton's communications director, said the candidate's break from the campaign trail helped her "sharpen the final argument she will present to voters in these closing weeks." Clinton's remarks Thursday will focus on lifting up children and families, as the campaign tries to break through with a more positive message.

The new letter from Clinton's doctor stated that a chest scan revealed she had "mild, non-contagious bacterial pneumonia." Dr. Lisa Bardack, chair of internal medicine at CareMount Medical in Mount Kisco, New York, said Clinton was treated with a 10-day course of Levaquin, an antibiotic used to treat infections.

Yesterday the Clinton campaign fired off a series of panicked tweets in an attempt to change the news cycle and distract from Clinton's lack of transparency.

Donald Trump, who has taken advantage of Clinton's absence this week by visiting Flint, Michigan, will discuss his health on "Dr. Oz" later today.
