President Biden fell three times while walking up the steps of Air Force One on Friday, a new video has shown.
Biden, 78, had his hand on the rail when he tripped twice before falling over the third time as he walks up the stairs of AF1 at Joint Base Andrews.
After falling for the third time, Biden took a moment to dust off his knee before finally getting to the top of the aircraft. At the top, he gave a salute before going into the cabin to fly off to Georgia.
However, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield said President Biden did not sustain any injury.
“I know folks have seen that President Biden slipped on his way up the stairs to AF1, but I’m happy to report that he is just fine and did not even require any attention from the medical team who travels with him. Nothing more than a misstep on the stairs,” she tweeted.
President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will meet with the Asian community in Atlanta after Tuesday’s mass shooting at area spas and massage parlors that left eight people, including six Asian women, dead.
In November, Biden suffered a hairline fracture in his right foot while playing with his rescue dog Major, which made him wear an orthopedic boot for several weeks.
Biden once mocked former President Donald Trump after videos of him walking gingerly walking down a ramp at West Point went viral.
“Watch how I run up ramps and he stumbles down ramps. OK? Come on,” Biden said.
