Trump to receive routine medical exam next year, White House says

Trump to receive routine medical exam next year, White House says”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday said President Donald Trump's "throat was dry" at the end of his Jerusalem speech on Wednesday, which resulted in many questioning the president's health.

Sanders was walking off the podium after declaring a wrap on the briefing when she did an about face, returning to podium. "Frankly, pretty ridiculous questions", she told reporters Thursday.

The White House said the president's throat was merely dry when he seemed to slur his words during a Wednesday address.

"Those records will be released following that taking place", she added.

Past presidents have typically undergone annual physical examinations with a military doctor and released those records to the public.

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.

Former President Obama's first health report was made public on February 28, 2010.

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

Trump, now 70, was the oldest president ever elected when he took the oath of office in January.

Bornstein's report listed Trump as 6-foot-3 and 236 pounds, placing him in the overweight category of body mass index but short of obese.

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 its own way, it's a pretty healthy act". "A lot of times these rooms are very hot, like saunas, and I guess that is a form of exercise and, you know?"
