White House slams 'ridiculous' Trump health questions

Trump to announce US embassy move to Jerusalem

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the announcement in the wake of what she called "pretty ridiculous questions" about the president's health following a speech on moving the USA embassy to Jerusalem Wednesday.

Sanders was walking off the podium after declaring a wrap on the briefing when she did an about face, returning to podium.

Sanders' announcement came a day after some questions were raised about the President's health after he appeared to get a dry mouth and slurred his words toward the end of remarks he delivered on Wednesday.

After President Donald Trump slurred a few words at the end of his Jerusalem speech on Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that the slip-up occurred due to a dry throat.

President Trump will receive a routine physical examination early next year and allow the results to be released by doctors, the White House said Thursday.

And, she said, "those records will be released by the doctor following that". Hillary Clinton won almost 3 million more votes than Trump, so by the White House Press Secretary's standards, the American people actually do want to hold Trump accountable.

The 71-year-old former real estate mogul is the oldest person ever to be elected president and is a well-known consumer of fast food.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump's personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, released two statements on Trump's health.
