Lara Trump, a daughter-in-law of President Donald Trump and an adviser to his reelection campaign, defended his awkward walk down a ramp and difficulty in lifting a glass of water during a speech on Saturday.
“It’s just fodder for the critics out there to attack him,” she said.
Lara Trump also attempted to explain his slow and unusual gait as he walked down a ramp after speaking at West Point.
“This was a ramp that had no steps, no handrail,” she said. “The president had on leather shoes, of course, he’s going to take his time.”
The ramp was dry and lined with no-slip strips and the weather was clear.
