Hillary Clinton said Monday she was “feeling fine” a day after she fell ill with pneumonia, and that she was eager to jump back onto the campaign trail in her battle against Donald Trump.
“I’m feeling fine and getting better,” Clinton posted on Twitter, signing with the “H” that signifies she personally wrote the message.
“Like anyone who’s ever been home sick from work, I’m just anxious to get back out there. See you on the trail soon,” she added.
Clinton scrapped a two-day fundraising swing through California scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, and she may be sidelined for a third day.
Around the same time Clinton was tweeting that she was ready to return to campaigning, her team acknowledged that Clinton would not attend her scheduled campaign event Wednesday in Nevada.
Clinton’s husband, the former president Bill Clinton, will be “campaigning in Nevada on the secretary’s behalf on Wednesday,” an aide to the former president said in a statement released by the campaign.
Clinton, 68, fell ill at a 9/11 memorial event in New York on Sunday and was seen stumbling as she was helped into her vehicle, forcing her campaign to disclose she had been diagnosed with pneumonia.
The incident gave her rival Donald Trump, 70, a new opening to question her fitness for the nation’s highest office.
