What Are The Red Marks On Trump’s Hands?

As Trump was leaving his New York residence to attend his second defamation trial, he waved to a group of supporters gathered in the street.

One person in the crowd snapped a pot of Trump’s hands, and a close look at the photo reveals Trump has several red marks on his hand.

Liberal media outlets falsely claimed Trump has syphilis, but Dr. Joshua Zeichner told Business Insider there are three reasons why Trump has the red marks, and they are the following.

  • Blisters from playing golf
  • His hands are too dry
  • He got lime juice on his hands

Per Business Insider:

Former president Donald Trump displayed mysterious red marks on his hand when he left his New York residence on Wednesday to attend E. Jean Carroll’s second defamation trial.

As with Trump’s health in the past, people on X (formerly Twitter) were quick to speculate about what caused the marks. Some guessed that he had “hand herpes” or may have recently had a fall.

While it’s difficult to diagnose a skin condition from just one photo, Dr. Joshua Zeichner, an associate professor of dermatology at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, told Business Insider that Trump likely has a rash — which can be caused by almost anything.

“Rashes on the hands can be caused by a variety of factors, ranging from infections to inflammatory conditions to external exposures,” Zeichner said.

Per The Daily Mail:

As Donald Trump waved at supporters today, he flashed bizarre red splotches on his right hand – sparking a slew of hilarious conspiracy theories online. captured him leaving Trump Tower early on Wednesday morning with the mysterious red cuts on his hand – hours after braving a snowstorm to speak to supporters alongside former 2024 GOP hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy.

Trump was on his way to court, where his accuser E. Jean Carroll testified in her second federal civil trial against him. She told the jury that Trump ‘shattered her reputation’ by ‘lying’ about sexually assaulting her and calling her a ‘wack job’.
