Mort Klein, head of the Zionist Organisation of America, said: "Everybody was talking about Jerusalem and how President Trump will be remembered for a thousand years and how we're all so grateful".

Facing global isolation for recognising Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, the White House yesterday defended President Donald Trump's decision, asserting that it was a reflection of the ground realities and the United States was committed to the Middle East peace process.

It was down to White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders to answer questions at a news conference in which Jerusalem was just one subject among many.

LiAngelo Ball Is Leaving UCLA Without Having Played a Game
Ball, freshmen Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested while their team was in China for their season opener. The three players were subsequently suspended indefinitely by the team after returning to the United States.

"The hashtag "#DentureDonald" started to trend on Twitter on Wednesday night after "Daily Show" host Trevor Noah played a clip showing the president slurring his words and mocked him. At the end of the speech, Trump appeared to slur his words.

For what it's worth, Sanders added that Trump will have a routine medical exam "early next year" at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center - where most modern presidents have received care - and the results "will be released by the doctor following that taking place". Trump, 71, is the oldest US president at this point in his tenure. In a separate speech last month about his Asia trip, he paused to take a long drink of water.

Sanders called speculation that something was awry with the president's health "ridiculous" and said that "the President's throat was dry, nothing more than that". "At this point, I wouldn't be shocked to find out he is the dude from 'Men in Black, '" Noah said jokingly.
