“We want to ensure that the candidates aren’t involved in any foreign entanglements that could impact our national security. And we want to know that they’re in good enough health to perform their duties.” 

Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine (D., Va.) said Tuesday that voters have a right to know about a candidate’s health and possible foreign entanglements.

Kaine’s remarks were meant to criticize Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. However, they could have applied to his running mate Hillary Clinton, who has faced her own questions about her health and the influence of foreign entities over her State Department while serving as secretary of state.

At a campaign event in Erie, Pennsylvania, Kaine said voters had “simple questions” for people running for the nation’s highest office.

“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,” he said. “We want to make sure that candidates aren’t involved in any foreign entanglements that could impact our national security, and we want to know that they’re in good-enough health to perform their duties.”

“When candidates are on the up-and-up, they have no problem disclosing information on all these points. You have a right to know. You have a right to expect, and a candidate that’s on the up-and-up has no problem giving you the facts.” –WFB
