Following the "medical episode" suffered by Clinton at the 9/11 Memorial in New York City on Sunday, Donald Trump was up early on Monday morning addressing questions about Hillary Clinton's health while saying he hopes "she gets well."

As speculation swirled about Clinton's candidacy, an interview with Trump claiming he has never even had the flu has surfaced. The telephone conversation with Trump was part of a promotional tour for "The Apprentice" on NBC and according to host Gregg "Opie" Hughes of Sirius XM's "Opie and Jim Norton Show," it happened a few months before Trump became a candidate for the White House.

In the interview, Trump insists he has never had the flu and never even had a flu shot, telling the satellite radio talkers, "I don't like the idea of injecting bad stuff into your body," Trump said.

Listen to the excerpt.

Clinton was also making phone calls on Monday. She spoke with CNN's Anderson Cooper about her health, announcing the campaign will be releasing more of her medical records and also managed to work in a reference about her releasing "nearly 40 years of tax returns," while saying the American people know "the least about Donald Trump of any candidate in recent American history."
