In Michigan on Tuesday, as President Joe Biden made his way down the steps of Air Force One, he almost experienced another fall. This comes shortly after reports suggest the President has been doing balancing exercises and is swapping formal shoes for sneakers. Opting for the shorter staircase as he arrived in Michigan to engage with auto workers, Biden, had a momentary slip but was able to avoid a complete fall. Watch:

Observers noted he sported what seemed like sturdy hiking or work boots, offering more support than traditional dress shoes. At 80, the President has faced increased health issues, with previous incidents on Air Force One and other stair scenarios, including a notable incident involving a sandbag at the Air Force Academy. A recent report states that Biden suffers from severe spinal arthritis.
