Trump talks about his health on Dr. Oz

(CNN) – Less than two months until election day there are still glaring gaps in the information Donald Trump has revealed to voters.

Trump unveiling the results his recent physical, not to the public but rather to a TV personality, Doctor Oz.

Leaving audience members to offer their best summaries of Trump’s health, “According to Dr. Oz, everything seemed normal. There were no surprises, except again that Donald Trump said he’s on a statin cholesterol lowering drug.”

But even Trump’s full physical results, which the campaign plans to release Thursday fall short of the detailed medical histories past nominees have provided to demonstrate their physical capacity to serve as president.

Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, says she doesn’t see the point of such broad disclosures, “I don’t know why we need such extensive medical reporting when we all have a right to privacy.”

This is hardly the only area where Trump is less-than-transparent. The billionaire businessman is still refusing to release his tax returns because he says they are under audit.”it’s a routine audit and i’ll release them after the audit, no problem.”

The dearth of information means voters know little about Trump’s business deals abroad and whether they’ll create conflicts of interest if he wins the presidency.

Trump’s daughter Ivanka insists the family would self-police their investments to avoid conflicts, “As a private business we can make decisions that are not in our best interest. We’re not beholden to anyone, to shareholders. We can say, you know what, we’re going to do less deals, we’re not going to do that deal, even though it’s a fine deal, it’s economically reasonable because it could create a conflict of interest and we’ll act incredibly responsibly.”

Keeping the tax returns under wraps also makes it difficult to prove Trump’s claim that he’s given millions to charity, “I’m a good person, i give money to charity, a lot of money to charity.”

The New York attorney general is investigating the Trump’s charitable foundation to ensure it’s complying with the law, “I didn’t make a big deal about it or hold a press conference but we’ve been looking into the Trump Foundation to make sure it’s complying with the laws that govern charities in New York.”

An investigation the Trump campaign quickly slammed as politically motivated releasing a statement saying, “Attorney general Eric Schneiderman is a partisan hack who has turned a blind eye to the Clinton Foundation for years.”
