American President Joe Biden stumbles while ascending the stairs of Air Force One on Friday for a flight to Atlanta.

Due to high-speed winds, Biden lost balance and stumbled on the stairs. He regained balance to take a few more steps but tripped again. However, Biden managed to get up again, and head towards the plane. After reaching the top, he turned back and salute the Air Force One personnel.

When asked about the president’s stumble, White House Spokeswoman, Karine Jean-Pierre told the reporters that it’s very windy outside. She added that “He is doing 100 percent fine. He’s doing great,” she said.

Biden is the oldest person to become the president at the age of 78. In November, he suffered from a hairline fracture while playing with his dog. However, this is not the first time any president had tripped while ascending the stairs. In 1975, President Gerald Ford had fallen down the steps of Air Force One when he arrived in Austria.

A similar incident happened with former president Donald Trump who stumbled after giving remarks at the US Military Academy at West Point.

Trump said that the ramp was slippery and dismissed concerns about his health. He once again invited mockery after images of what looked like a toilet paper stuck to his shoe while boarding Air Force One in 2018.

“The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was very long & steep, had no handrail, and, most importantly was very slippery. The last thing I was going to do is ‘fall’ for the Fake News to have fun with,” Trump had tweeted.
