New questions over Biden’s health as the president, 78, stumbles multiple times up the stairs of Air Force One before falling down

President Joe Biden stumbled twice then fell as he ascended the steps of Air Force One on Friday.

Biden, 78, recovered quickly after falling to his knees and carried on up the steps before giving a salute at the top. He then disappeared into the aircraft.

The tumble comes a day after the gaffe-prone President referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as ‘President Harris’, and after a bitter stand-off with Russian President Vladimir Putin which ended in Putin wishing him ‘good health’.

Putin pulled out of an envoy to the US after Biden called him a ‘killer’ in an interview earlier this week. He also said he will ‘pay a price’ for Russia trying to meddle in the 2016 election.

The fall on Friday is the latest in a string of incidents which have raised concerns and questions about the President’s health.

The White House and Biden’s camp routinely play down concerns, insisting he is in good health and fit to lead.

Until recently, he was walking in a boot after breaking his foot while playing with his dog, Major, in November.

His doctor at the time said he was otherwise in good health.

Biden and Harris are flying to Atlanta to meet with members of the Asian community after Tuesday’s shootings at three massage parlors. They had already planned the trip, to meet with failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, before the shootings.
