President Donald Trump responded to worries about his health with a tweet sent late Saturday night.
After Trump had apparent difficulty navigating the ramp and needed two hands to take a sip of water, the hashtag #TrumpIsNotWell was the top trending topic on Twitter in America.

"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 claimed. "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!"
MSNBC analyst Clint Watts reported that the weather in West Point was "amazing" on Saturday.
