Trump Campaign Addresses Speculation Surrounding Photo of Trump With Red Spots on His Hands

Photographs of Donald Trump with a conspicuous red mark on his hands sparked widespread speculation about the former President’s health. However, sources close to Trump clarified that the red smear was simply a result of a minor papercut.

The incident occurred as Trump left the E. Jean Carroll defamation trial in New York City, with onlookers expressing surprise at the bright red smear on his fingers and palm. Online speculation ranged from serious health concerns to syphilis or leprosy. Despite initial dramatic reactions, Trump’s team addressed the rumors the following day, attributing the red marks to a harmless paper cut.

Subsequent sightings of Trump without any redness further dispelled concerns, confirming that the situation was not as serious as initially speculated.
