After President Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Wednesday, many on social media couldn't help but notice that the president slurred his speech towards the end of his announcement.
"Thank you, God bless you, God bless Israel, God bless the Palestinians, and God bless the United States," Trump said at the end of his speech, with Twitterverse pointing out that he mispronounced "States."
