Washington, Sept 16: Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has vowed that she will never give up as she hit the campaign trail again following a three-day rest after being diagnosed with pneumonia. Speaking at a rally in greensboro, North Caroli, Clinton said her time off was a gift, allowing her to reflect on the campaign, BBC reported.
“People accuse me of all kinds of things,” she said, “but nobody ever accuses me of quitting and I will never give up, I’ll never walk away, no matter how tough the going gets,” she told her supporters at Thursday’s rally. Polls indicate a tightening White House race, with 54 days to the election day — November 8.
The former State Secretary’s return comes a day after her doctor said she was “healthy and fit”.
“With just two months to go until the election day, sitting at home was pretty much the last place I want to be,” Clinton said.
The 68-year-old said she felt “lucky” that she could afford to take a few days off, compared with the millions of Americans who could not. At a brief press conference afterwards, when Clinton was asked whether she had shared details of her pneumonia diagnosis with her running mate, Tim Kaine, the Democrat replied that “many senior staff knew and information was provided to a number of people”.
