Trump’s tweet reads, “The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was very long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery. He added, 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 the level ground. Momentum!” Trump’s claim was countered by MSNBC analyst, Clint Watts, who said the weather at West Point was “amazing.”
It was actually his glad-that-was-over stumble! He clearly has right sided hemiplegia. He was leading with his left leg. And then during the drinking attempt, the right hand could not coordinate getting the glass to his mouth so he used the left hand to position & assist.

Trump’s health has been a topic of discussion for a long time with many people questioning his physical and mental health. He has claimed that he is healthier now than he has ever been. Mike Rochschild wrote, “He minces down the ramp taking tiny baby steps and staring at his shoes, then pulls up big at the end, and blusters through the last step like he’s Patton surveying a battlefield full of knocked out panzers.”
