There was widespread speculation over the weekend about President Donald Trump’s health after he appeared to have difficulty walking and drinking from a glass of water.
The two incidents have been jokingly referred to as Watergait, which trended nationwide on Twitter on Sunday.
But Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law who is working on his 2020 re-election campaign, defended Trump during a Monday appearance on Fox News.
“This was a ramp that, you know, had no steps, no handrails. The President had on leather shoes. Of course he’s going to take his time,” she said.
She also denied that anything about Trump’s health was being hidden from the American people.

In 2016, Joe Biden did not have difficulty with the ramp, even though it had no steps.

‘No silver lining, no encouraging trend for the president’: Pollster explains how Joe Biden is beating Trump by 15 points
A polling analyst for the highly-regarded Quinnipiac Poll explained how former Vice President Joe Biden is beating President Donald Trump in the latest survey by a whopping 15 points.
"Independents are a key factor behind Biden's widening lead as they now back him 51 - 34 percent, while in June, independents were split with 43 percent for Biden and 40 percent for Trump," Quinnipiac reports. "There is also some movement among Republicans as they back Trump 84 - 9 percent, compared to 92 - 7 percent in June. Democrats go to Biden 91 - 5 percent, little changed from 93 - 4 percent in June.
