Donald Trump's medical records to be released in 2018 as concerns mount over health after president slurs words

Washington: The President has his physical scheduled in 2018 after which doctors would release his medical records, the White House said on Thursday, while terming as "ridiculous" the questions about Donald Trump's slurred speech.

"I know that there were a lot of questions on that —  frankly, pretty ridiculous questions. The President's throat was dry. Nothing more than that," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters.

She was responding to questions about Trump's health after his Jerusalem speech on Wednesday.

Towards the end of his speech, Trump was heard slurring and mispronouncing his words, fuelling speculation about his health.

"He does have a physical scheduled for the first part of next year, the full physical that most Presidents go through. That will take place at Walter Reed, and those records will be released by the doctor following that taking place," Sanders said.
