President Donald Trump will undergo a physical examination and release the results early next year, the White House revealed.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters on Thursday that Donald Trump would undergo a physical by a physician at Walter Reid military hospital and release the results.

Sanders said that questions about the president’s health were “ridiculous” and that he was only suffering from a dry throat during a speech on Wednesday when he had difficulty speaking.

The incident caught on camera prompted journalists to question the president’s physical health or whether he was wearing dentures.

“The president’s throat was dry, nothing more than that,” Sanders said.
