Biden, 78, the oldest president in history, fell as he was about halfway up the steps. There's, of course, a doctor who travels with the president, any president of the United States, but I'm not aware of it needing actual, extensive medical attention, ' she said.

Biden was preparing to depart Joint Base Andrews for Atlanta when he was caught on camera falling three times on the steps.

When President Donald Trump was in office, he was seeking $2 trillion for infrastructure, but Biden has added a second piece of funding for additional jobs, education and training, national funding for universal pre-kindergarten, and a national childcare plan as well, the Washington Post reported Monday.

Former Vice President Mike Pence, last year, stumbled while boarding 'Air Force 2.' And Biden's previous boss, former President Barack Obama, almost fell down Air Force One's stairs while disembarking the aircraft in 2015. He then got up and made it the rest of the way up the jet stairs. During his several hours on the ground he walked around Emory College campus for meetings with local officials and Asian American groups. It's very windy. I nearly fell coming up the steps myself, ' she said.

White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters aboard Air Force One that the president was doing "just great" and blamed the incident on wind gusts.

Then-President Donald Trump, within days of Pence's near fall on Air Force Two, had difficulty walking down a ramp at West Point Military Academy after his speech for graduates. Biden falls repeatedly but I'm sure he's the picture of health. Biden is the oldest president to ever be inaugurated.

Trump was 70 when elected and was 74 when he left office earlier this year.

Donald Trump Jr., son of former President Donald Trump, even posted a video that jokingly showed his father hitting a golf ball that strikes Biden in the head to trigger his stair-tripping incident.
