US President Donald Trump will have his medical tests in 2018 after which doctors would release his health records, the White House said on Friday while dismissing as "ridiculous" the questions about his slurred speech. Trump in a major policy address had on Wednesday announced to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
At the White House Hanukkah party the mood was ecstatic as President Trump promised that the evening would be "all about Jerusalem".
At the end of his speech, Trump said "God Bless the United States", but the last word came out as "Shhtates".
"The hashtag "#DentureDonald" started to trend on Twitter on Wednesday night after "Daily Show" host Trevor Noah played a clip showing the president slurring his words and mocked him. "Nothing more than that", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters.
But that only fueled additional conversation about the subject.

Factoring in ballpark and season, Chatwood still finished last season with an above-average ERA+ of 107, per Baseball Reference . The 27-year-old also had a strong end to the year, posting a 3.12 ERA in seven games (five starts) during September.
With that said, Trump, now 71, was the oldest newly elected president when he took office in January at age 70.
Trump has had bouts of dry mouth before.
Sanders also noted that Trump will have a full physical at Walter Reed Medical Center early next year, and that those records would be released by the doctor.
"I know for a fact there are a lot of happy people in this room", Trump stated in reference to his Jerusalem declaration.
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.
