In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

    1. Who’s doing the speculating? I’m guessing it’s the usual suspects among the Dems, MSM and Never Trumpers…so take it all with half a grain of salt.

  1. There was a photo of him having trouble walking on the ramp at West Point. He claims the ramp was slippery. I have not read any speculation his health is failing.

    1. To me, that ramp looks to be about a 20% incline, which is MUCH steeper than modern standards allow, even those that aren’t trying to comply with ADA standards – especially with no handrail.

      The military may use it for 20 year olds in prime condition, but no one would be able to wheel themselves up it in a wheelchair. Whoever set that up for the President – or any important person – to use made a mistake, and needs some continuing ed in accessibility.

      “ADA Ramp Specifications Require a 1:12 ramp slope ratio which equals 4.8 degrees slope or one foot of wheelchair ramp for each inch of rise. For instance, a 30 inch rise requires a 30 foot handicap wheelchair ramp.”

      And another source: “Bottom line: recommended ramp slope: The preferred slope for a building access ramp is 1:12 or 1 inch of rise per 12 inches of horizontal run – that’s roughly an 8% slope also written as a 4.8 degree angle slope.

      “While you will see ramps at steeper slopes including the range of 0° to 18° of slope in the illustration shown here and ramps with slopes as steep as 20° in older texts, to build a ramp that is compliant with the U.S. ADA, the maximum (steepest) ramp slope allowed is either:
      Maximum Egress Ramp Slope = 1:12 slope = 8.33% slope = a 4.76° degree slope
      Other Ramps Maximum Slope = 1:8 slope = 1.5:12 slope = 12.5% slope = 7.13° slope
      “The combination of a sloped surface with conditions that can make that walking surface slippery, especially at outdoor building access ramps, forms a falling hazard at both ramp ascent, and ramp descent for nearly everyone.

      “These hazards are particularly increased if the ramp pitch is too steep. The desirable ramp slope standard, one inch of rise in 12 inches of run (about 8.3 percent slope), has been adopted by most building codes regardless of whether or not the access ramp is specifically for people with disabilities.”
