White House: Trump's slurred speech was caused by a dry throat

White House: Trump's slurred speech was caused by a dry throat

Representatives from Jewish groups, who disagree with Mr Trump recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital, were also omitted from the guest-list.

Vice President Mike Pence, his wife, Karen, and Rabbi Meir Soloveichik also were on hand.

The White House denied that politics played a role in the invitations.

"November was a great month for American workers as President Trump's bold economic vision continues to pay off", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.

However no Democratic congress people were invited to the event, despite the fact that 28 of the 30 Jewish House members are Democrats. The contentious decision has heightened tensions in the area, which is already fraught, and many took to Ivanka's post to express their concerns using a hashtag in Arabic that translates to "Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine" as well as "Free Palestine", and #SavePalestine.

"These deplorable and unacceptable measures deliberately undermine all peace efforts", Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said in a speech after Trump's announcement.

With a deadline approaching for another such waiver, evangelical advocates saw a window to increase the pressure.

Trump, 71, spoke Wednesday on Israel and seemed to have difficulty pronouncing words, and particularly the letter "s".

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". "I'm saying there's nothing to it", Shah said.

In an interview with Breitbart News, Israel's Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer said of the physical move, "I'm sure it's going to happen".

"Hanukkah is a time for Jewish families around the world to celebrate the miracles of the past and promises of the future", Trump said.
