She added “I almost fell coming up the steps myself. He is doing 100 percent.”

White House communications director Kate Bedingfield tweeted “I know folks have seen that President Biden slipped on his way up the stairs to AF1, but I’m happy to report that he is just fine and did not even require any attention from the medical team who travels with him. Nothing more than a misstep on the stairs.”
