Título: Hillary Clinton, Feeling ‘Overheated,’ Leaves 9/11 Ceremony

Texto: Hillary Clinton on Sunday abruptly left a ceremony in New York marking the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks before it concluded because she became “overheated,” according to a campaign spokesman.

“During the ceremony, she felt overheated, so she departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better,” said Nick Merrill, a Clinton spokesman, noting that the Democratic presidential nominee appeared at the event near ground zero for 90 minutes before leaving.
Mrs. Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, lives in Manhattan, a short drive from the former site of the twin towers.

At about 11:40 a.m., Mrs. Clinton, wearing sunglasses, emerged from the apartment in New York’s Flatiron district. She waved to onlookers and posed for pictures with a little girl on the sidewalk.

“I’m feeling great,” Mrs. Clinton said. “It’s a beautiful day in New York.”

Mrs. Clinton left in her motorcade without the group of reporters that is designated to travel with her in public. Mr. Merill indicated that she returned to her Chappaqua, N.Y., residence after 1 p.m., but did not give an exact time.

Mrs. Clinton had arrived at the commemoration event around 8 a.m. and left at about 9:30. But for over an hour after that, her campaign would not offer any information about why she left early or where she was.

Video from the event taken by an attendee captured Mrs. Clinton struggling to steady herself and then stumbling as she stepped off a curb. She required assistance from two Secret Service agents to get into her van. The video, which was posted on Twitter, immediately ricocheted across the internet.

Donald J. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, also attended the event, as did a host of other dignitaries. Temperatures were in the low 80s on Sunday morning in New York, with considerable humidity.

Mr. Trump and his supporters have aggressively sought to raise questions about Mrs. Clinton’s health in recent months. The nominee himself has highlighted his rival’s recurring cough and wrote on Twitter last month that “both candidates” should “release detailed medical records” (Mr. Trump has issued only a limited summary of his own health).

Mrs. Clinton has been bothered by allergy attacks since she emerged from an August fund-raising swing for a series of post-Labor Day campaign events. On Monday, in Cleveland, she could hardly get through a rally because of a coughing attack. “Every time I think of Trump, I get allergic,” she told the crowd to laughter.

The following day on her campaign plane, Mrs. Clinton told reporters that her allergies flared up twice a year and that she was on antihistamines. “I just upped my antihistamine load to try to break through it,” she said. “It lasts a couple days, and then it disappears.”

A campaign spokesman didn’t immediately respond to questions about whether Sunday’s incident was related to her medication or allergies.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign has tried to bat away rumors about the candidate’s health, including releasing a letter from Mrs. Clinton’s doctor saying she was in “excellent health.” Aides have dismissed such questions as a way to distract from the issue of Mr. Trump not releasing his tax returns.

Both Mrs. Clinton, 68, and Mr. Trump, 70, have shared less information about their health than many previous presidential candidates, though Mrs. Clinton has provided more information than Mr. Trump.

In July 2015, Mrs. Clinton issued a detailed two-page letter from her physician that included the concussion Mrs. Clinton suffered while she was the secretary of state in 2012; it left her with a blood clot in her head and double vision. Mrs. Clinton’s physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, said those symptoms had been resolved within two months.

Her husband, Bill Clinton, however, has said that Mrs. Clinton “required six months of very serious work to get over” the concussion — a statement that helped feed conspiracy theories among Republicans that Mrs. Clinton’s concussion was worse than initially disclosed, though there is no medical evidence to support those theories.

Asked whether she was concerned such questions about her health would affect the election, as the polls have tightened, Mrs. Clinton said, “I’m not concerned about the conspiracy theories. There are so many of them I’ve lost track of them.”
