Trump Mocked Obama for Holding Hanukkah Celebration Early ...

The announcement came after Trump slurred some words when delivering a keynote speech on recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

During his almost one year as president, Trump, now 71, has not publicly released any medical records. But as Rachel noted on last night's show, there are some lingering questions not only about what he said, but also about how he said it.

"The president's throat was dry".

President Trump has scheduled a physical health exam for early next year at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will share the results with the public, the White House announced Thursday, a day after Trump's slurred speech sparked concern about his health.

Trump, 71, spoke Wednesday on Israel and seemed to have difficulty pronouncing words, and particularly the letter "s". He ended by saying what sounded like "and God bless the United Shtesh". The president's throat was dry. "So I think he's in pretty good health".

President Donald Trump will undergo a physical examination early next year and allow doctors to release details of his medical evaluation, keeping with past precedent.

Questions had arisen about whether Trump wears dentures.

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

The White House says it believes President Donald Trump's eldest son had a "legitimate reason" in citing attorney-client privilege to avoid answering questions to Congress about conversations with his father.
