Biden stumbled on the steps twice before falling to his left knee. The president then pulled himself up and boarded the plane, which then took off for his scheduled trip to Atlanta, Georgia.
From one witness’s camera angle, Biden fell far enough to disappear from view on the tarmac stairs.
Another angle more clearly shows Biden stumbling and hitting his knee:

On Thursday, Biden raised eyebrows when he referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as “President Harris” and did not correct himself.
