The video clip shows Paul, who has identified as a Republican and Libertarian, discussing the economy and then suddenly slurring his speech and speaking unintelligibly.

Retired politician Ron Paul appeared to have suffered a stroke while doing a livestream interview Friday afternoon. He has since been hospitalized for "precautionary" reasons, according to Fox News.

Mr. Paul tweeted a photo of himself from his hospital bed giving a thumbs-up about 90 minutes after the episode was first reported with the message, "I am doing fine". Rand Paul, R-Ky., also responded to the incident on Twitter. The stream immediately ended, and the video was taken down. "Thank you for your concern".

The video, which was shot from a high-rise building near the facility, showed large plumes of smoke coming out of the building. The company has another sprawling European-themed campus close by, which has offices for 25,000 employees.

Paul is the father of Sen. Nothing more about the former congressman's medical condition has been disclosed. "May God's healing hand be upon Dr. Paul, and may God's Peace and Grace be upon the entire family".

Paul served as a Texas congressman for 23 years over a 36-year period and made three unsuccessful bids to become president: in 1988 as a libertarian and twice in 2008 and 2012 as a Republican.
