President Joe Biden tripped while walking up the stairs of Air Force One as he prepared to depart Europe on Wednesday. Biden’s surprise visit to Ukraine this week ended with him losing his balance and falling upward as he navigated the steps. The New York Post reported that the incident occurred in Warsaw, Poland. Biden, 80, turned to face onlookers after the face-plant. He waved at them and then boarded the plane.
The White House has not commented on whether the president was injured in any way. Former President Donald Trump was among those who highlighted Biden’s lack of agility online. The 46th president is not known for his physical coordination. He notably tripped three times while climbing the stairs to Air Force One in March 2021.
