Trump's pledge came hours after Politico published an article about his refusal to make his records public. As the news site reported, Trump said in a 1999 “Larry King Live” interview that all candidates should be prepared to make them public.

“You don’t want to get into a situation where you elect someone and then you find he’s terminally ill and he’ll be in office for about three months,” Trump, who was then considering a third-party presidential run, told King.

The billionaire mogul would take office at the age of 70 if elected, making him the oldest person to assume the presidency.
