  • White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said
    at a press conference Thursday that Trump’s slurred speech at
    the end of his announcement on Jerusalem was due to a dry
    throat.
  • Questions had arisen about whether Trump wears
    dentures.
  • Trump has frequently touted his oral health in the
    past.

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.

“The president’s throat was dry — nothing more than that,”
Sanders said at Thursday’s press briefing, calling the questions
“ridiculous.”

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.

“Thank you, God bless you, God bless Israel, God bless the
Palestinians, and God bless the United States,” Trump
said.

Trump noticeably slurred his final words, and people on Twitter
started to
theorize
that he may have been wearing dentures or some other
form of dental prosthetics.

When asked about Trump’s apparent verbal slip, a White House
spokesperson told
Quartz
 on Wednesday that Trump had a case of “dry
mouth,” a response that Sanders echoed.

Trump has frequently touted his health throughout his campaign
and presidency, and producing a letter signed
by his personal physician of 35 years to prove his point.

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.
