    US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's camp was instructed not to comment on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's health after the "medical episode" at the 9/11 commemoration ceremony, according to sources involved in the Trump campaign.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Clinton abruptly left Sunday’s 9/11 anniversary service and canceled her upcoming two-day trip to California due to poor health condition. Hours later, her personal physician announced she was diagnosed with pneumonia.

    Sources in Trump's camp told the CNN broadcaster that the support team was asked to show respect and not to post any negative remarks on social media related to the topic.

    Such conduct is uncharacteristic of Trump who maintained in his earlier speeches and remarks that Clinton was struggling a health crisis and accused media of concealing this fact.

    Sunday marked the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York's World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Washington, DC.
