The White House said President Trump slurred through part of his speech about Jerusalem on Wednesday because he had a dry throat.

Trump, in a major foreign policy shift, announced that the U.S. would move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. But toward the end of the White House address, Trump began to slur parts of his speech, garbling “God bless the United States” at the end of his remarks.

The flub fueled buzz on social media that the President was having some health problems or denture slippage.

“His throat was dry,” White House spokesman Raj Shah said. “There’s nothing to it.”

Last month, Trump had an awkward water-bottle moment during a speech recapping his 12-day trip to Asia. The President stopped mid-speech to reach behind a podium to get a bottle of water, which he lifted to his mouth with two hands.
