With Election Day just over 70 days away, Donald Trump is pulling out all the stops in an attempt to improve his falling poll numbers. Trump's latest effort includes promoting debunked conspiracy theories about the health of Hillary Clinton.

Trump's demand

Over the last few years, far right-wing websites and news outlets have questioned Clinton's health, coming up with bizarre and factless stories to back up their claims. While credible media sources have dismissed these stories as nonsense, the Trump campaign are using them as a last ditch effort to get back into the race. As the weekend came to a close, Trump took to his offical Twitter account with a questionable demand, as reported by Mediaite on August 28.

"I think that both candidates, Crooked Hillary and myself, should release detailed medical records," Trump tweeted out late Sunday night, before saying, "I have no problem in doing so! Hillary?" Trump's demand comes at a time when questions have been raised about his own health.

A previously released letter from Trump's doctor saying he was in great health has come under-fire after the physician admitted he was "rushed" and "anxious" when he wrote the note in less than five minutes time.

In addition, Vanity Fair recently ran an article using photo evidence that questioned the health of the billionaire real estate mogul.

Hypocrisy?

Though the former host of "The Apprentice" continues to hammer home question's about Clinton's past, critics point out that he has yet to release his tax returns.

Only portions of his past tax records have been released to the public after several news outlets were able to uncover the information. The Republican nominee has been accused of possibly fabricating his earnings, while paying less than expected in previous years. Trump claims a current audit from the IRS is holding up the release of his returns, though the IRS themselves have denied that accusation.

Election impact

The most recent round of polling has Trump behind Clinton nationally and in key swing states. Over 70 percent of Hispanics and women hold a negative view of Trump, with less than five percent of African-Americans giving him their support. Unless Trump pulls out a historic comeback, most political pundits are putting their money on a Clinton presidency in the near future.
