Doctor takes the blame for Trump’s slurred speech: I accidentally ‘dried up his secretions’
A doctor who examined President Donald Trump said during a White House briefing on Tuesday that he was in excellent health.
Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House physician, also took the blame for an incident in December in which Trump appeared to slur his words.
Jackson suggested that Trump had slurred his words because he had a dry mouth. “I had given the president some medication, specifically some sudafed over the days previous and dried up his secretions more than I intended to.”
