Donald Trump said Tuesday that he will release his full medical records, reversing a long-held position that he would do so only if his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, first released detailed medical documents of her own.

“Why not go first?” ABC's David Muir asked Trump during an interview, which aired Tuesday.

“I might do that. I might do that,” Trump said. “In fact, now that you ask, I think I will do that.”

Clinton in fact released a two-page letter last year detailing her current health, medical history, medications and family medical history. The letter also detailed an incident in 2012 in which Clinton hit her head and suffered a concussion after falling, which was the subject of online conspiracies about lasting effects.

Her physician, Lisa Bardack, said that a follow-up in 2013 had "revealed complete resolution of the effects of the concussion."

Trump released a letter speaking to his health last year – but its brevity, not to mention the unusual wording of the letter, raised many questions. Many of Trump’s skeptics even speculated that it was not really written by a medical doctor.

"If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency," Harold Bornstein wrote. In an interview with NBC, Bornstein said he had barely five minutes to type the note while a Trump limousine driver was waiting for him to finish it.

Trump did not say during the ABC interview when he would release his medical records. His campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“I’d love to give full reports,” Trump said.
