Democratic Presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, has been seen out and about after concerns for her health were raised when she left a 9/11 memorial earlier.

A spokesperson for the nominee said she left the commemoration ceremony after an hour and a half after she “felt overheated.”

“Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen. During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better,” the Clinton campaign spokesperson told NBC News.

Video footage of Mrs Clinton leaving the event surfaced and appeared to show her falling as she was escorted to a van.

NBC news cites “two senior law enforcement officials,” in saying that she fainted shortly before leaving the event.

But Mrs Clinton has since been seen leaving her daughter’s apartment, waving at onlookers as she did so.

Mrs Clinton yesterday said she regretted taking aim at half of Donald Trump supporters, saying they were “the basket of deplorables” for being “Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic.”

Speaking to an audience of donors on Friday the Democratic Presidential hopeful said Trump’s campaign had emboldened the prejudiced supporters.

Mrs Clinton’s VP pick Tim Kaine also earlier this week referred to Republican nominee Donald Trump as the “gravest threat” to LGBT rights the community has ever faced.

Democratic Presidential candidate Mrs Clinton in July named Senator Kaine as her running mate.

Senator Kaine has been a long-time advocate for LGBT+ equality. He was one of the original sponsors of the Equality Act, and in 2006 on becoming the Governor of Virginia he signed an executive order to protect against discrimination based on sexual orientation.

His views contrast with Donald Trump’s VP pick Mike Pence, a diehard opponent of LGBT rights who previously signed a ‘religious freedom’ law permitting anti-LGBT discrimination.
