WATCH: ‘Older’ Joe Biden narrowly avoids accident while climbing short stairs

US President Joe Biden, 80, stumbled again as he climbed the stairs to board Air Force One on Thursday, even after using a convenient short ladder.

Biden, the oldest politician to hold the presidency, was about halfway up a planned 14-step staircase in Helsinki, Finland, when he tripped.

As soon as this happened, Biden quickly recovered and made his way to the entrance of the plan.

Biden has been using the short stairs to board the presidential plane since he slipped and fell from a sandbag in Colorado last month.

The latest crash is the fourth time the president has made a faux pas when boarding Air Force One.

A few days ago some questioned why a “watch your step” sign was seen on the stairs leading to Air Force One during Biden’s arrival in the UK on Sunday night, days after Biden’s position has declined.

The oldest serving US president has repeatedly faced criticism over his age and past incidents when he tripped and fell.

The president will turn 81 in November, and if he wins re-election in 2024, he will be 82 at the start of his second term.

It is not uncommon for presidents to face embarrassing moments during their tenure.

Biden’s predecessor Donald Trump has been criticized for appearing slow and unsteady in public appearances. And he is three years younger than her.
