The White House has issued a statement clarifying 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 three times as he climbed the plane’s steps.
He appeared to fall initially, got up, and tripped a second and third time
“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.
Following the incident, Donald Trump Jr, the son of the 45th US President, took to Twitter to mock his father’s successor.
He shared a video of Biden falling and wrote: “I remember the press bashing Trump for touching the rail once. Biden falls repeatedly but I’m sure he’s the picture of health. No wonder all our enemies are pouncing simultaneously and mocking him publicly.”
