The announcement came one day after Trump slurred his speech during remarks about Israel, triggering an avalanche of speculation about his health.

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.

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. "That will take place at Walter Reed, and those records will be released following that taking place". Sanders denied the slurring was the result of a medical problem.

At age 70, Trump was the oldest president elected to his first term.

Trump's health has also come back into the fore in recent days because of a book written by Corey Lewandowski, in which his former campaign manager describes Trump's fast food-fueled diet.
