ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: "It's great to be back on the campaign trail," says Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during an event in Greensboro, North Carolina on Thursday (September 15), as she took to the stage with the song "I feel good" by James Brown. Clinton resumed campaigning after pneumonia forced her to take time off and an aide to the Democratic presidential nominee said facing a Republican rival as controversial as Donald Trump makes it "harder to be heard." "I certainly feel lucky when I'm under the weather I can afford to take a few days off. Millions of Americans can't... some things should be within reach for everyone no matter what," said Clinton. Clinton's return to the campaign trail comes as Trump has cut into her lead in polls ahead of the Nov. 8 election. She was scheduled to attend a rally in North Carolina and then speak at a dinner in Washington. Clinton, 68, had been resting at her home in Chappaqua, New York, for three days after being diagnosed with pneumonia and falling ill at a Sept. 11 memorial ceremony on Sunday. With the candidates' health in the spotlight, Trump, 70, on Thursday released details of a recent physical examination, a day after Clinton released details on her medical condition. Trump's campaign said the results of his physical showed the fast-food fan has normal cholesterol with the help of a statin drug, weighs 236 pounds (107 kg) and has normal blood pressure. In a not-so-subtle slap at Clinton, the Trump campaign said the medical report showed Trump "has the stamina to endure - uninterrupted - the rigours of a punishing and unprecedented presidential campaign and, more importantly, the singularly demanding job of president of the United States." Top Clinton aide Jennifer Palmieri said "one upside" of Clinton's unplanned break was the chance to "sharpen the final argument Clinton will present to voters in these closing weeks."
