The Democratic nominee is “recovering nicely.”

Concern for Hillary Clinton's health became a trending headline over the weekend when the presidential candidate was seen apparently stumbling into a car after taking an early leave from a 9/11 commemorative event she was attending.

It was announced on Sunday that Clinton has pneumonia and "was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule," in a statement by Dr. Lisa Bardack. "While at this morning's event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely," said Bardack.

The blip in Clinton's health was pounced on by some of the far-right. Donald Trump urged Clinton to release more of her medical history, saying he recently had a routine physical exam and would release the results when they came in - though he still has yet to release his tax returns.

According to CNN, Clinton will be sticking closer to home and recuperating while preparing for the upcoming debates. While it was originally planned for the democratic nominee to speak in Nevada, it's thought that she'll pick a battleground state closer to New York.
