Critics of the controversial ex-president Donald Trump are questioning the mobility of his right leg after a video went viral online of him allegedly “dragging” it as he walked, seeming to struggle.

The presumed 2024 GOP presidential nominee has decided to run for president again following his 2020 defeat but critics have been quick to speculate about his physical condition and health at 77 years old. Social media users have zeroed in on the mobility of his right leg, even though Trump has never reported anything to be wrong with the limb.

In a video posted to X, formerly Twitter, by Ron Filipkowski, a vocal Trump critic and editor-in-chief of the independent news network MeidasTouch, Trump can be seen dancing on stage and moving his clenched fists back and forth while audience members cheer him on. But once the dance is over Trump can be seen making his way off stage, gripping the handrails of the stairs as he walks down them, appearing to steady himself.

“Something is definitely going on with his right leg. He’s been dragging it for months. This weekend…” Filipowski captioned the video. The post has already been viewed more than a million times and viewers have started chiming in with their own speculation about the controversial mogul’s health.

“He gripped that stair rail for life didn’t he?” one person commented on the post. This comes after Trump has launched ranting diatribes of criticism about the health of President Joe Biden. He has questioned Biden’s mental state and physical health, and just this week President Biden was spotted wearing a sportier alternative to his normally smart shoes amid fears his stability has begun to deteriorate.

“Imagine the right wing’s reaction if [President] Joe Biden were dragging his leg around like that. It would be lead story on Fox News every night and every pundit would be talking about it. Since it’s Trump, of course, they all ignore it,” said one commenter. Someone else added: “Also, now needing to hold onto not just one handrail, but both. Was his walker waiting at the bottom of the stairs?”

While previously avoiding questions about his health, Trump has begun to be more open. “You always have to talk about health,” Trump said in an interview with The Washington Post recently.

“You look like you’re in good health, but tomorrow, you get a letter from a doctor saying come see me again. That’s not good when they use the word again.”

Trump’s team published a report in November that he claims was from his physician, which stated his cognitive health was “exceptional” and that he had “reduced his weight through an improved diet and continued daily physical activity.”
