Even one of Biden's biggest critics, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) came to the president's defense, saying President Trump had often said the climbing the stairs to the airplane was extremely hard.

Donald Trump Jr. shared a video on Twitter mocking President Joe Biden's three stumbles on Friday. "It's pretty windy outside, it's very windy". "It's very windy. I nearly fell coming up the steps myself". The incident happened as Biden headed to meet Asian-American community leaders after a major shooting at a parlour this week.

President Trump is not the only member of the Trump family having fun at Biden's expense.

Videos shared widely on social media showed the United States president climbing about a dozen stairs before briefly losing his footing.

Even Biden mocked Trump at the time for the way he walked, saying the Republican "stumbles down ramps".

"Nothing more than a misstep on the stairs", she said. (Eric Baradat/AFP via Getty Images) President Joe Biden salutes as he boards Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on March 19, 2021.

According to a report, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told White House pool reporters that the president was "doing fine" after the fall. Biden falls repeatedly but I'm sure he's the picture of health. He also recently suffered a hairline fracture in his foot in November after he slipped and grabbed his dog's tail while stepping out of the shower, an injury that required a walking boot.

Biden, 78, is the country's oldest president.

"President Biden and his team are considering a range of potential options for how to invest in working families and reform our tax code so it rewards work, not wealth", White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement in response to the article. "He is doing 100% fine".

Former President Donald Trump, within days of Pence's near fall on Air Force Two, appeared to be close to falling down a ramp at West Point Military Academy after speaking at a commencement speech for graduates.
