It is the first time that the White House has committed to releasing health records of Trump, something his predecessors did routinely.

President Donald Trump has scheduled a physical health exam for early next year at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will share the results with the public, the White House announced Thursday, a day after Trump's slurred speech sparked concern about his health.

An outpouring of anger to Trump's hotly contested decision engulfed the Muslim world on Friday and Saturday, as tens of protests were staged across the region by worshippers after prayers.

In September 2016, during the general election campaign, Trump released a doctor's note that included some medical information.

He told the 250 guests: "I know for a fact there are a lot of happy people in this room".

Christian vice-president Mike Pence, Sheldon Adelson, the hotel magnate and Zionist donor, and Jewish Republican legislators were among those who attended and ate kosher lamb chops, just as in past years, for White House Hanukkah parties.

Later he said, "The miracle of Hanukkah is the miracle of Israel".

Evangelicals still strongly believe that the land was given to the Jews by God, and that it is Israel's right to have Jerusalem as its capital.

An intense and sustained push by US evangelicals helped drive President Donald Trump´s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel´s capital and eventually relocate the USA embassy there, activists said on Wednesday. Beside them was his daughter Ivanka and her husband, senior adviser Jared Kushner, and the president's grandchildren, whom he noted are Jewish.

He was also accompanied on stage by Louise Lawrence-Israel, a Holocaust survivor originally from the Netherlands, who shared the story of childhood under Nazi Germany's rule, saying that "people let this happen". "Her family could not light the candles that we're about to light this evening", Trump stated.
