Yesterday, President Donald Trump announced that he would officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital along with plans to relocate the U.S. Embassy there. While on the surface that may not sound like a big deal, it is. CNN reported that "Trump's decision upended seven decades of U.S. foreign policy." The accepted position until now was that the U.S. would not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel until the Israeli-Palestinian conflict — which is clearly so much more nuanced and complex than our president can understand — is resolved. Hamas' political leader called Trump's move "a war declaration against Palestinians." Other world leaders called Trump's announcement "unhelpful" and a "disappointment."
But on to the real issue: Donald Trump's speech. In addition to possibly starting World War 3, Trump, in a speech about his Jerusalem decision, very obviously slurred his speech. Like a lot. It has many theorizing about the state of his mental and physical health, and honestly, the video is pretty appalling.
Watch the first 30 seconds of Trump's speech. And then watch the last 30 seconds.

Some believed his slurred speech and teeth clenching were signs that the president was on drugs, specifically cocaine.Rumors have always abounded about Trump's drug habits due to his erratic and often bizarre behavior, but that's just speculation.
Whatever was wrong, it's clear that something was up.
We need an immediate Medical and psychological assessment on Donald Trump slurring. The country deserves answers!— #ThisIsGettingNormal (@#ThisIsGettingNormal)1512589373.0

We can't blame Donald Trump's dentures for wanting to escape him. We know the feeling.This photo just proves that Donald Trump is just like any other celebrity — he used his incredible power and influence to buy himself some better teeth.
You can't blame him for doing so.

Now's a good time to remember that we never got a clear picture of how healthy Trump was because his doctor was so clearly a kook.
