Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Hillary Clinton’s grueling campaign schedule led her to collapse with severe pneumonia, the former presidential candidate confirms in her shocking new memoir.

In a copy of upcoming book What Happened obtained exclusively by, the 69-year-old politician recalls feeling “awful” as she attended a memorial at the National September 11 Museum in New York on September 11, 2016.

Though the doctor ordered her to take a few weeks off, she refused — which led her to collapse at the solemn ceremony.

“The sun was beaming down,” she remembers. “My head ached. You know the rest.”

She also suffered a concussion in 2012, but insists she had “recovered fully” before embarking on her campaign.

The former Secretary of State admits in hindsight, she should have taken a break during her illness.
