WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the U.S. presidential race (all times EDT):

7:30 a.m.

Donald Trump says he's planning to release detailed health information from a new physical exam in the coming days.

The Republican nominee told "Fox and Friends" that he had a physical examination last week. He said he expects a report this week and he'll "be releasing very, very specific numbers."

He said: "Hopefully they're going to be good. I think they're going to be good. I feel great."

The announcement comes after rival Hillary Clinton became ill at a 9/11 anniversary ceremony in Manhattan Sunday and was captured stumbling by amateur video.

Trump's move is likely to increase pressure on Clinton to release more information about her health.

Clinton has so far released more details about her health than Trump.

Donald Trump says he hopes rival Hillary Clinton "gets well soon" after her abrupt departure from a 9/11 anniversary ceremony following a health episode.

Trump said in an interview on "Fox and Friends" Monday morning that: "Something's going on, but I just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail and we'll be seeing her at the debate." The first of three debates is scheduled for Sept. 26.

Her doctor says she is fighting a case of pneumonia.
