Dr. Oz: I'll Ask Trump 'Pointed Questions' About His Health on TV Show

Dr. Oz said on Tuesday that he will ask Donald Trump "pointed questions" about his health when he interviews him on his television show on Wednesday — cautioning, however, that he will not ask the Republican candidate "questions he doesn't want to have answered."

"It's his personal records," Oz told Brian Kilmeade on the "Kilmeade & Friends" program on Fox News Radio. "I want to ask him pointed questions about his health."

He told Kilmeade that Trump agreed to allow him to reveal his assessment of his medical records on the program, which will air on "The Dr. Oz Show" on Thursday, before a live studio audience.

Asked how he expected Trump to respond if the records contained "embarrassing things," Oz said: "Well, I bet you he won't release them. … It's his decision.

"The metaphor for me is it's the doctor's office, the studio," he added. "So, I'm not going to ask him questions he doesn't want to have answered — and I also don't want to talk about anybody else.

"We're not going to be talking about Secretary [Hillary] Clinton, for sure.

"And I don't want to talk about things that are outside of the health purview," Oz continued. "But I do not believe we can have a wealthy country without being a healthy country.

"And so, I do think people want to understand, what happens to my healthcare if Mr. Trump is elected, and more importantly, what kind of role model is he for health in our country."

Further, if Trump puts "limitations" on what Oz can divulge on the program, he told Kilmeade, "I'll acknowledge them."

"But I must say, his campaign has been very professional about this," he added. "They haven't asked me for anything."

He added that he would like to talk to Trump's physician, should the candidate offer him the opportunity, "because that's a discussion if he's comfortable with he'll probably offer me."

Kilmeade also asked Oz about the Dec. 4 letter Trump's physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, wrote declaring that his patient was in "excellent" health — which he admitted typing in five minutes because "I had other people to see."

"No, I haven't written one like that," Oz said when Kilmeade asked whether he had ever provided a letter like that for a patient. "It's a — it's a little out of the ordinary.

"I'm gonna see if I can make some sense out of that, the letter."
