Donald Trump Blames Slippery Ramp For Difficult Walking, Others Doubt His Health At The Age of 74

Nagini Shree |Jun 15, 2020

As video of the incident circulated widely on social media, Donald Trump's shaky walk in an event ahead of his 74 birthday raised questions about his health.

In a widely circulated video on Saturday that Donald Trump delivered a commencement address at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the President of America showed an unsteady walk down the ramp and had trouble raising a glass of water.

The video is going viral on the Internet and sparked attention. The hashtags TrumpIsUnwell and TRUMPstroke were trending on Twitter late Saturday and early Sunday. In response to massive mocks, Mr. Trump took to Twitter to lash out,

“The ramp that I descended after my West Point commencement speech was very long and steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery. The last thing I was going to do is ‘fall’ for the Fake News to have fun with. Final ten feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!”

However, his explanation couldn't satisfy critics. There was no evidence that the ramp was slippery, and the skies were clear during the ceremony. The officers walking next to him seemed to have no difficulty in descending a ramp. In another clip, the president appeared to struggle to bring a glass of water to his mouth when using both hands.

The videos again raised questions about the health of Mr. Trump, when last year he had a mysterious, unannounced hospital visit. He was taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in his motorcade on a trip that had not been listed on his public schedule.

In March 2020, Trump had not completed the remainder of his annual exam. The White House has released virtually no information from the November 2017 visit, except for Trump’s weight and cholesterol count.

During his 2016 campaign, Trump had attacked then-opponent Hillary Clinton after she fell ill at a campaign event, saying she was not physically up to the task of being president.  He mocked his presumptive 2020 rival Joe Biden, “Sleepy Joe cannot bring us to greatness. He is the reason I’m here!”

Mr. Trump even criticized his predecessor Barack Obama for an “unelegant” walking style off the plane.

“The way President Obama runs down the stairs of Air Force 1, hopping & bobbing all the way, is so inelegant and unpresidential. Do not fall!”

Donal Trump, who celebrated his 74 birthday on Sunday, is the oldest man ever sworn in for the first term as president, and he is not known for a healthy diet or exercise other than weekend golf.
