Breaking: U.S. President Biden slips, falls three times on Air Force One

Joe Biden’s ability to effectively govern the world’s most powerful country despite his fragile health was a major topic of concern during the 2020 presidential elections.

President Joe Biden on Friday stumbled and fell three times while trying to board Air Force One out of Washington.

Videos circulating on social media from multiple angles show how Mr. Biden, 78, repeatedly stumbled and then fell completely on the stairs.

Report said he was departing for a programme in Atlanta to meet with Asian American leaders in the wake of recent attacks on a row of spas, during which six Asian women were killed.

Mr. Biden’s stumbles could renew concerns about his failing health. His ability to effectively govern the most powerful country in the world was a major topic of concern during the 2020 presidential elections. He has maintained that his health was not fragile, dismissing former President Donald Trump’s criticism as misguided and misplaced.

Mr. Biden also ridiculed Mr. Trump when the former leader stumbled during a military event in New York in the run up to the election. 

Mr. Biden’s supporters said his fall was not unusual for someone of his age, and a spokeswoman for the White House said the president was in good condition and would proceed with his assignment in Atlanta.
