Hillary Clinton Calls Time Off Campaign Trail for Pneumonia a 'Gift'


Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said it's "great to be back on the campaign trail" after spending three days at home in Chappaqua, NY recovering from pneumonia.

"I have to say, it's great to be back on the campaign trail," Clinton said during a rally at UNC Greensboro Wednesday.

"Sitting at home was pretty much the last place I wanted to be," Clinton said. "But it turns out having a few days to myself was actually a gift."

While at home, Clinton said she spoke with some old friends and spent some time with her dogs.

"I did some thinking," she said. "The campaign trail doesn't really encourage reflection."

Clinton has been under fire as questions swirled about her health and her team's disclosures about her pneumonia diagnosis after she was caught on video having trouble walking during a 9/11 memorial in New York.

In the subsequent days, both she and her Republican opponent, Donald Trump, released new statements from their doctors about their health and fitness to serve.

"And it's important to sit with your thoughts every now and then," Clinton said. "And that did help me reconnect with what this whole campaign is about."
