Former aide Omarosa: Trump 'needs to come clean about his health'
Omarosa Manigault Newman on MSNBC.

Fresh off of her court win against President Donald Trump, Omarosa Manigault Newman told Rev. Al Sharpton that if her former boss runs in 2024, he should be more honest with the American people about his health.

Rev. Sharpton asked if she thought Trump would run in the next presidential election and she said that he probably would if his health would allow him. If he does, however, she said he should be upfront with the American people about things she implied he's been hiding.

"I think going into 2024, I'm really more concerned about the fact that Donald Trump hasn't come forward and talked about his health," she said. "I don't know if he will even be healthy enough to run in 2024. I think he needs to come clean to the American people about where he is on that before deciding to get into a very stressful and strenuous race for the White House."

Trump got extremely ill when he contracted COVID-19 and according to a Feb. 2021 report from the New York Times, Trump's lungs had "infiltrates" and officials feared he'd need a ventilator. Journalists Damian Paletta and Yasmeen Abutaleb also discussed in their book, Nightmare Scenario, that doctors were concerned about organ failure while Trump was at Walter Reed.

Trump's niece, Dr. Mary Trump said that as someone who had severe asthma as a child, she could recognize that her uncle was struggling to breathe when he arrived back at the White House and climbed the steps to the second floor. Trump hasn't revealed if he has any lingering problems from contracting the virus.

Trump made former Secretary Hillary Clinton's health a major part of his 2016 conspiracy theories. He attempted to do the same with now-President Joe Biden, but it didn't work a second time.

Trump also had his doctor write a letter that proclaimed his health as the best he'd ever seen. The letter then drew criticism about the doctor's credentials and there were questions about whether Trump was hiding something. There were then questions about Trump's health after the White House doctor was outed as "the candy man" for handing out pills to whatever staffer sought them. That doctor, Ronny Jackson, then ran for Congress and currently serves as a far-right Republican from Texas.
