  • Trump says White House Hanukkah celebration 'all about Jerusalem'

Rachel Maddow notes Donald Trump's unusually slurred speech during his Jerusalem announcement yesterday and reports on the White House announcing that Trump will have a medical exam in January with the results to be made public. Neither Trump is an attorney.

President Donald Trump dubbed Thursday evening's White House Hanukkah party one that "will go down as especially special" and declared that this year's soiree was "all about Jerusalem".

"The president's throat was dry - nothing more than that", Sanders said at Thursday's press briefing, calling the questions "ridiculous".

The Internet was set abuzz by the slurred speech at the end of Trump's speech on Wednesday, particularly the way he said "God bless the United States".

With that said, Trump, now 71, was the oldest newly elected president when he took office in January at age 70.




Sanders said Trump was scheduled to have a routine medical exam "early next year" at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, as most presidents have done historically.

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

It is the first time that the White House has committed to releasing health records of Trump, something his predecessors did routinely.

Trump released a clean bill of health from his longtime personal physician past year that was widely panned as laughable for lacking details and offering an over-the-top portrait of Trump's health.

Trump's health has also come back into the fore in recent days because of a book written by Corey Lewandowski, in which his former campaign manager describes Trump's fast food-fueled diet. "A lot of times these rooms are very hot, like saunas, and I guess that is a form of exercise and, you know?"
