President Trump is defending his slow, careful descent from a stage ramp following his commencement address at West Point earlier Saturday.
Cameras had filmed Trump gingerly walking down the lengthy ramp after his speech, sparking wild speculation online from detractors that he has health issues.
A #Trumpisnotwell tag trended online.
“The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was very long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery,” Trump tweeted late Saturday.
“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!”
In his first speech to cadets at the storied military academy, Trump stuck to a script calling for national unity.
“What has historically made America unique is the durability of its institutions against the passions and prejudices of the moment,” Trump said.
“When times are turbulent, when the road is rough, what matters most is that which is permanent, timeless, enduring and eternal.”
