When it comes to the upcoming election, Americans are more interested in the issues than they are the health of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer.

“I think Trump should talk about what the American people are interested in and they’re not interested in all this hubbub,” she told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Mac & Gaydos on Tuesday.

“They’re interested in jobs, the economy, taxes, our security – the things that are important to moms and dads and working America.”

Clinton’s health came back into the national spotlight on Sunday after she left a 9/11 memorial memorial because she “felt overheated.” Her campaign later said she was suffering from a bout with pneumonia.

While the internet has been rife with stories about her possible health concerns — some people even believe she employs a body double — Brewer feels the medical sideshow will prove fleeting.

“All this rhetoric about everything on the peripheral is not of interest to me and I don’t think it’s of interest to a majority of the people,” she said.

The former governor said she hopes Clinton makes a full recovery ahead of the first of three presidential debates, slated for Sept. 26 in New York.

“I want her back on the campaign trail and I want to see a very feisty debate,” she said.
