Tim Kaine thinks voters should know everything they can about a candidate’s health.
Yes, that Tim Kaine — as in Hillary Clinton’s running mate.
The Democratic vice presidential nominee made the remarks during a prepared speech in Erie, Pennsylvania on Tuesday.
“You, voters, have to ask candidates a few simple questions,” he said, motioning to the audience.
“You want to know if we’ll disclose our finances so you can understand how we’ve managed our own household or business and see if we owe anybody anything,” Kaine said, likely attempting to put the focus on Republican opponent Donald Trump.
He added that voters want to know if candidates are involved in any “foreign entanglements that could impact our national security.”
But he didn’t stop there.
“We want to know that they’re in good enough health to perform their duties,” Kaine said. “When candidates are on the up and up, they have no problem disclosing information.”
Kaine’s running mate, Hillary Clinton, so far has refused to disclose her medical records.
“I think that both candidates, Crooked Hillary and myself, should release detailed medical records,” Trump tweeted Sunday evening.
“I have no problem in doing so! Hillary?” he said.
Clinton so far has refused to release her detailed medical history.
Clinton aide tells NBC's @mitchellreports they won't release more medical records; says up to Trump to produce legitimate & detailed letter.

Her campaign responded, telling MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell they “won’t release more medical records.”
“You have a right to know,” he said. “A candidate on the up and up has no problem giving you the facts.”
