During a Wednesday speech regarding Jerusalem, President Donald Trump raised some eyebrows regarding not only what he said, but how he said it.
The president was announcing a policy shift, stating the United States would move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, although as he was speaking, many noticed he was slurring his speech.

The White House later stated the slurring was due to a dry throat.
During a press conference Thursday, Sanders stated Trump will see a doctor at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in “the first part of next year,” and the results will be released to the public, according to the New York Daily News.
The release of Trump’s health status will be the first the public has seen.
Prior to this, the only update on Trump’s health was given by Dr. Harold Bornstein, Trump’s physician of 25 years at the time, who said in a signed December 2015 statement:
If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.

With that said, Trump, now 71, was the oldest newly elected president when he took office in January at age 70.
