President Trump Will Undergo a Physical and Release Details Next Year, White House Says

White House says Trump slurred during his speech about Jerusalem because his throat was dry

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.

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.

Sanders responded to a question from "CBS This Morning" co-anchor Gayle King, who asked the former presidential candidate about his thoughts on sexual harassment allegations against Democratic Sen.

She added: "He does have a physical scheduled for the first part of next year, the full physical that most presidents go through". Trump's physical will take place at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. But she testified to Trump's endurance.

Trump, who at 71 is known to be fond of fast food and to shun exercise, has faced questions about his health before.

The grassroots group CREDO had garnered more than 152,000 supporters as of Thursday afternoon in its call for a federal investigation into allegations of government officials' abuses, starting with Trump's.

"I think... that would be left to the party leadership", she said, arguing that there is "no reason at this point" to believe that Congress can't self-police themselves when it comes to charges of sexual harassment against its members. But some of the greatest US presidents have been quite sick - FDR spent much of his presidency in a wheelchair, a fact largely concealed at the time.

And Obama was diagnosed with acid reflux - heartburn, the classic Type-A health issue - and has in the past suffered from Vitamin D deficiency, which can result from getting insufficient exposure to the sun.
