In the short video, we see the former US President holding his granddaughter Carolina’s hand as she guides him to her desk. He leans down, kisses her on the head, and she continues to show off her classroom.

As you can imagine, people started a debate in the comment section, with many praising Donald for seeing his grandchild. X users posted things like “Trump showing up for the people who matter the most, no matter how small. Class act. 👏🏻” And another X user added, “This is just an amazing and touching moment. I bet she felt like the biggest person in the world to have Grandpa there.”

However, quite a few thought this video was insincere, and even alleged that it looked staged. One X user said: “Are we supposed to think this is a regular routine from the man who dismissed the idea of taking his own kids for walks as the wife’s responsibility? I don’t even see any warmth here,” which refers to how his first wife Ivana claimed he never changed a diaper and was an uninvolved parent. (And many people in this X user’s replies alleged the photo op angle).

Another X user added, “This is so staged. She doesn’t even look at him. She has to be prompted by the teacher to do things. She clearly doesn’t have a real relationship with him.”

Lara also shared a photo of Donald smiling next to Carolina and her teacher. She shared the photo to Instagram with the caption reading, “Strong team for Grandest Friends Day!!! 💜”

And yes, the comments under that are quite split.

So for those who don’t know, Lara and Eric Trump have two children together named Eric “Luke” Trump, 6, and Carolina Dorothy Trump, 4.
