Washington, March 20
US President Joe Biden is doing “100% fine” after he tripped multiple times while jogging up the stairs to board Air Force One, according to a senior White House official.
Biden, 78, stumbled as he climbed the plane’s steps, initially appearing to trip, get up, then trip a second time. He struggled to get up the second time for a brief moment, before making it up, turning to give a salute before entering the cabin. “So, as you know, it’s pretty windy outside, it’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself,” White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said while briefing reporters on the presidential plane on the way to Atlanta, Georgia where Biden was to meet members of the Asian-American community. — PTI
