The White House has said that President Joe Biden is 100 percent fine after he tripped while walking up the stairs to board Air Force One on Friday.
Karine Jean-Pierre, White House press secretary said this while speaking to journalists.
Biden stumbled as he climbed the plane’s steps.
He appeared to fall initially, got up and tripped a second time.
He struggled to get up the second time for a brief moment, before making it up, turning to wave at the top of the steps before entering the plane.
“So, as you know, it’s pretty windy outside, it’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself,” she said while briefing reporters on the plane on the way to Atlanta.
“He is doing 100% fine”, Jean-Pierre said.
The American president broke his foot in November after celebrating his 78th birthday and winning the presidential election.
During the 2020 campaign, the Biden campaign released a summary of Biden’s medical history, which showed the former vice president was healthy and fit for the presidency.
