President Joe Biden is doing “100% fine” after he tripped while walking up stairs to board Air Force One earlier Friday, White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said.

Biden stumbled as he climbed plane’s steps, initially appearing to trip, get up, then trip a second time. He struggled to get the second time for a brief moment, before making it up, turning to wave at the top of the steps before hustling inside.
“So, as you know, it’s pretty windy outside, it’s very windy. I almost fell coming up steps myself,” she said while briefings reporters on the plane on the way to Atlanta. “He is doing 100% fine.”

Jean-Pierre wouldn’t say if he hurt foot that was recently broken.

“He’s doing great. All I can tell you is he’s doing fine. He’s preparing for trip today and he is doing just great,” she said in response to a question.
She repeated that he’s doing just fine when asked if Biden got checked out by a doctor.

Biden had broken his foot in November, just after celebrated his 78th birthday and winning White House, making him the oldest president in US history.
During 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.
Dr. Kevin O’Connor, who has been Biden’s primary care doctor since 2009 and is director of executive medicine at The George Washington Medical Faculty Associates, wrote at the time that Biden is “a healthy, vigorous” man “who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency.”
Biden fractured his foot after he slipped while playing with his dog, Major. Biden family has two dogs, Major and Champ, both German shepherds.
