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.

Sanders' remarks came after criticism of Trump's slurred speech during a foreign policy announcement Wednesday.

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.

"There were a lot of questions on that - frankly, pretty ridiculous questions", Sanders told reporters at the White House press briefing.

What's more, Sanders' pushback notwithstanding, there's nothing "ridiculous" about the questions.


The White House said Friday that another positive report on hiring shows that "President Trump's bold economic vision continues to pay off".

Mrs. Sanders said the administration is "especially pleased to see the manufacturing sector roaring back to life, adding a total of 159,000 jobs since President Trump took office after averaging a loss of more than 1,000 jobs per month during the past year of the previous administration". The spokeswoman said, "those records will be released by the doctor following that".

During his almost one year as president, Trump, now 71, has not publicly released any medical records.

Questions had arisen about whether Trump wears dentures.
