Joe Biden, who defeated President Donald Trump in a bitterly contested election last year, is the oldest president of the United States of America. He is 78.
In a report, The Independent said Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told White House pool reporters that the president was “doing fine” after the fall.
“It was very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself. He is doing 100 per cent,” she was quoted as saying by the Independent.
“He’s doing fine. He’s preparing for the trip just fine.” In the run-up to the 2020 US Presidential elections, some people had expressed concerns about Joe Biden’s health and fitness.
In November last year, Joe Biden suffered a hairline fracture in his right foot while playing with his dog Major.
