Questions about Trump's oral health cropped up after people pointed out that the president appeared to be struggling to deliver his final words during Wednesday's speech.

President Trump has scheduled a physical health exam for early next year at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will share the results with the public, the White House announced Thursday, a day after Trump's slurred speech sparked concern about his health.

Despite this, it seems as though Trump will be undergoing a physical exam in early 2018, according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, per CNN. But according to a spokeswoman for the first lady, the White House made a decision to go with a more intimate approach this year -inviting 300 attendees to celebrate the season.

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

"The President's throat was dry, nothing more than that", she said.

Trump released a clean bill of health from his longtime personal physician previous year that was widely panned as laughable for lacking details and offering an over-the-top portrait of Trump's health. As doubts about his capacity to handle the grueling office circulated, his personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, wrote a letter declaring: "Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".

In 2002, then-President George W. Bush jogs with U.S. Secret Service agents during the APEC Leaders' annual meetings in Los Cabos, Mexico.

Trump has frequently touted his oral health in the past. "So I think he's in pretty good health. You do have faith and you do have resilience", Trump said. "But I'd be happy to share any information". But some of the greatest USA presidents have been quite sick - FDR spent much of his presidency in a wheelchair, a fact largely concealed at the time.
