One more. Candidate for his succession, US President Joe Biden, 30, once again fell on Thursday during a graduation ceremony at the US Air Force Academy. The White House was quickly reassuring, assuring that he was "fine" and that he had tripped on a sandbag.
After finding himself belly to the ground, Joe Biden quickly caught himself with his hands and then stood up, helped by several people. Justifying himself, the US president appeared to show the sandbag he had stumbled on before mingling with other officials, smiling, giving a thumbs up.

"He's fine. There was a sandbag on the stage as he shook hands," Ben LaBolt, the White House communications director, said on Twitter.

Joe Biden, who is not at his first fall, also accumulating many gaffes, is currently the oldest person to occupy the White House. The US president is running for re-election in the 2024 election, while Donald Trump, also a candidate, will celebrate his 77th birthday. The latter regularly criticizes his successor regarding his age and state of health.
