White House says Trump will undergo physical exam after slurred speech

White House says Trump will undergo physical exam after slurred speech

The White House spoke out yesterday after the President could barely get his words out while announcing plans to move the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem - making it Israel's new capital.

When asked about Trump's apparent verbal slip, a White House spokesperson told Quartz on Wednesday that Trump had a case of "dry mouth", a response that Sanders echoed.

We've talked a couple of times this week about the risky consequences surrounding Donald Trump's new policy toward Israel, which the president announced at a White House event on Wednesday.

The White House has announced that US President Donald Trump will go through a physical exam at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center early in 2018 and will make the results public.

Trump, 71, spoke Wednesday on Israel and seemed to have difficulty pronouncing words, and particularly the letter "s".




"Thank you, God bless you, God bless Israel, God bless the Palestinians, and God bless the United States , " Trump said. "Nothing more than that". Frankly pretty ridiculous questions.

It's hardly outrageous to think some will have questions about Trump's health given the circumstances.

Many on social media noted a Trump tweet rapping President Obama for holding a Hanukkah party days before the event.

Trump released a clean bill of health from his longtime personal physician previous year that was widely panned as laughable for lacking details and offering an over-the-top portrait of Trump's health.
