As rival Hillary Clinton takes flak for being too secretive about her health records, Donald Trump has backed off a plan to reveal the results of his physical on national TV. Instead, daughter Ivanka Trump called her father's health "unbelievable," notes Politico, saying that "I was out on the campaign trail with him for one day yesterday and I need this coffee in the morning, so he does this every day." The Trump camp previously said the Republican candidate would reveal his physical results on an episode of The Dr. Oz Show, airing Thursday. However, aides now say Trump will discuss only general health issues with Mehmet Oz, reports the Hill.

"I'm not going to ask him questions he doesn't want to have answered," Oz says in an interview with Fox News Radio, per the New York Times. "It's his decision." A campaign rep tells CNNMoney that the plan to discuss Trump's exam results was "considered, given the timing and platform," but "never finalized." Trump's camp says his results will still be released to the public later this week. (Read more Donald Trump stories.)
