    Is this sentence ambiguous?

    "President Reagan's doctor suggested that he take a short rest at Camp David." Is this sentence ambiguous?

    Thanks!

    It seems quite clear and unambiguous to me.

    I agree with Bhaisahab. The doctor would not suggest his own need for rest at the President's camp, he would suggest the President rest at his own retreat.
