President Donald Trump on Tuesday continued to complain about speculation that mental and physical ailments could be explained by him having a stroke or series of mini-strokes.


As the hashtag #TrumpStroke trended on Twitter, Trump lashed out at conservative Matt Drudge for a brutal headline on Trump denying a mini-stroke is the reason he was rushed to Walter Reed Medical Center in November.

The front page of the Drudge Report featured two banner headlines on the topic on Tuesday.
