WH Pushes Back on 'Ridiculous' Health Questions Following Trump's 'Slurred Speech'

NATION-WORLD     TIME reveals its 2017 Person of the Year The Silence Breakers     
       The Person of the Year issue will be on newsstands Friday

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.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said she was not aware of any other country's commitment to follow the US's lead and move their embassy to Jerusalem during a daily press briefing.

"The president's throat was dry, nothing more than that", she told reporters. Trump's physical will take place at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

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.

Former President Obama's first health report was made public on February 28, 2010. The statement seemed, on its face, ridiculous - Gerald Ford was a gifted athlete prior to being elected, George W. Bush's passion for running kept him trim and his heart rate low.

As if the revolutionary 'low fat' avocados weren't exciting enough, Marks and Spencer have brought out stoneless avocados. These avocados are said to taste the same as regular avocados, but they have thin, edible skin .

Questions had arisen about whether Trump wears dentures. The moment was quickly shared online, and prompted speculation about the 71-year-old president's health.

The letter, written by his personal physician Dr. Harold Bernstein, said Trump "is in excellent health, and has the stamina to endure - uninterrupted - the rigors of a punishing and unprecedented presidential campaign and, more importantly, the singularly demanding job of president of the United States".

Trump has frequently touted his oral health in the past.

"So I think he's in pretty good health", he said.
