Biden, 80, had just touched hands with a student and was heading back to his seat after delivering the military academy’s graduating address.
Air Force soldiers assisted him in getting back up, and he did not appear to require any additional assistance.
As he stood up, Biden pointed to the item that appeared to have seized his foot. On the stage, it looked like a little black sandbag.
Shortly afterwards, White House Communications Director Ben LaBolt tweeted, “He’s OK. While he was shaking hands, there was a sandbag on stage.”
Biden is the oldest president in history, and he is running for re-election in 2024. This year, his official doctor’s report pronounced him physically well, and he exercises on a daily basis.
In November 2020, shortly after defeating incumbent Donald Trump in the election, Biden fractured his foot while playing with a beloved dog.
