President Trump speaks in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House about Israel policy on December 6.

The President's throat was dry.

The American people have no available medical records on Donald Trump, and no one should believe this White House when they say that they will make the full results of Trump'snext physical public.

At the very end of yesterday's briefing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to questions about Trump's difficulties in speaking by saying, "I know that there were a lot of questions on that - frankly, pretty ridiculous questions".

Trump slurred his words during a policy address Wednesday about Israel, inspiring media speculation that he may have had a dental or health problem.

Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (FOX) Just Reaches 52-Week High?
One analyst has rated the stock with a sell rating, five have given a hold rating and six have issued a buy rating to the company. Wellington Management Group LLP grew its position in shares of Twenty-First Century Fox by 12.3% during the 1st quarter.

What's more, Sanders' pushback notwithstanding, there's nothing "ridiculous" about the questions. That will take place at Walter Reed, and those records will be released by the doctor following that taking place.

When asked about Trump's apparent verbal slip, a White House spokesperson told Quartz on Wednesday that Trump had a case of "dry mouth", a response that Sanders echoed.

During his almost one year as president, Trump, now 71, has not publicly released any medical records.

The incident caught on camera prompted journalists to question the president's physical health or whether he was wearing dentures.

Some psychiatrists have flouted industry rules on diagnosing public figures to openly question whether Trump is suffering from dementia or narcissistic personality disorder.
