A White House spokeswoman said Friday that President Joe Biden was alright after he stumbled a few times as he boarded Air Force One, CNN reported.
“So, as you know, it’s pretty windy outside, it’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself,” White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters in the press pool on Air Force One bound for Atlanta, according to CNN. “He is doing 100% fine.”

The spokeswoman didn’t comment if the president hurt his foot that had previously been broken, CNN reported. The president slipped in November while he played with his dog, Major, resulting in a fractured foot, according to a February CNN report.
“He’s doing great. All I can tell you is he’s doing fine. He’s preparing for the trip today and he is doing just great,” Jean-Pierre said, according to CNN.
Jean-Pierre said again that Biden was alright when she was asked whether a doctor had inspected the president, CNN reported.
