Joe Biden has been caught on camera repeatedly falling as he tried to climb stairs to board Air Force One.
The US President tripped three times in quick succession before steadying himself and turning to salute waiting servicemen as he boarded the aircraft.
I remember the press bashing Trump for touching the rail once. Biden falls repeatedly but I’m sure he’s the picture of health. No wonder all our enemies are pouncing simultaneously and mocking him publicly. pic.twitter.com/R1qN9DDHFW

The Democrat was at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on Friday bound for Atlanta, Georgia.
At 78, he was the oldest person to take over at the White House on January 20, with predecessor Donald Trump implying he was too old for the job despite only being four years his junior.
It’s not the first time a US president has struggled on the Air Force One steps.
During his unsuccessful election campaign last year, Trump himself was seen clinging to the rails in high winds.
In October 2018, the Republican former leader appeared to have toilet paper stuck to his shoe as he climbed the stairs on his way to a Make America Great Again rally in Minnesota.
