Trump was almost slurring his words while he gave a short speech at a State Dinner in Seoul, South Korea with President Moon.

I only clipped a short portion of the speech, but it was all the same. After each statement he made, a Korean interpreter translated and then he'd resume.

Many political commenters were expressing how Trump's tone was much more measured than he usually is from his earlier press conference, but maybe that was because he's too groggy to do otherwise.

Trump said, "What does this even mean? Together, our nations remind the world of the boundless potential of societies that choose freedom over tyranny, and who set the free. And we will free, and we will sacrifice, and we will hope, and we will make things beautiful, especially the aspiration of your people."

See what I mean?

Holly O'Reilly tweeted:

"What the hell is he talking about? Someone come collect Paw-Paw, it's past his naptime."

He was laboring mightily.
