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

Press secretary Sarah Sanders also dismissed what she called "ridiculous questions" about Trump's health after he seemed to slur some words in a speech a day earlier.

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

"I do know that I spent 12 days on the road with him in Asia, and despite the fact that he's a little bit older than me, he had twice the energy that I do, and I'm the one sick now and he's still going", Sanders said last week in response to an earlier question about the president's health. "That will take place at Walter Reed [Medical Center] and those records will be released by the doctor following that".

President Barack Obama's first physical record was released on February 28, 2010.

Trump has frequently touted his oral health in the past.

Before Thursday, the White House had not yet confirmed whether Trump would follow in his predecessors' footsteps. The moment was quickly shared online, and prompted speculation about the 71-year-old president's health.

Trump's typical order from McDonald's, Lewandowski wrote, consisted of "two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish and a chocolate malt".

"Thank you, God bless you, God bless Israel, God bless the Palestinians, and God bless the United States", Trump said.

In a September 2016 television appearance on "Dr. Oz", Trump said he does not work out but considers his speeches to be exercise.

"When I'm speaking in front of 15 and 20,000 people and I'm up there using a lot of motion, I guess in it's own way, it's a pretty healthy act", he said.
