It was also revealed that, like his predecessors, Trump will undergo a full physical early next year and the results will be made public by the doctor.

Just two hours after Senator Al Franken announced Thursday he is resigning amid sexual misconduct allegations, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about the far more severe and extensive allegations of sexual assault against President Trump by at least 16 different women.

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.

"I'll break the rule sand come back", she said, because "I know there were a lot of questions" about Trump's speech slurring.

The White House said the president's throat was merely dry when he seemed to slur his words during a Wednesday address. Trump's physical will take place at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

President Barack Obama's first physical record was released on February 28, 2010. President George W. Bush's was first released August 4, 2001.

Trump has frequently touted his oral health in the past.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump's personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, released two statements on Trump's health.

The 71-year-old former real estate mogul is the oldest person ever to be elected president and is a well-known consumer of fast food.

"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".
