SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton returning to the trail Thursday after falling ill with pneumonia.

A lot of people - including Donald Trump - have tried to make her health an issue. Here's what she said at a stop in Greensboro, NC.

"It's great to be back on the campaign trail.  As you may know I recently had a cough that turned out to be pneumonia. I thought I could power through it, but even I had to admit that a few days of rest would do me good,” said Clinton.

Meanwhile, polls show the race for the white house tightening with Trump gaining ground in both state and national polls.

"The polls are coming out, I can't tell you we are leading in so many polls I don't know where to begin, but that's a good feeling,” said Trump.

Trump has cut Clinton's lead in the latest CBS News poll. She has a two point edge, but that is within the poll’s margin of error, so this is looking right now to be a very close election.
