Biden’s fall followed a row with China during which a Chinese diplomat told the US they are not qualified to negotiate with the Asian giants from a position of strenght. The exchange happened on US soil.
The fall also followed Biden’s row with Vladimir Putin who said the US leader, who accused Putin of being a killer, is also a killer. Putin also told Biden to take care of his health, and also challenged him to a live debate.
Biden is traveling to meet with Asian-American community leaders after eight people, including six Asian women, were killed in a shooting rampage at a series of Atlanta-area salons on Tuesday.
Former president Trump and his allies focused heavily on Biden’s age and alleged infirmity during the 2020 campaign, often highlighting the moments where Biden appeared to lose his train of thought while speaking publicly.
Biden became the oldest president to take the oath of office when he was sworn-in in January, but he has argued that his age and decades of experience in the Senate would give him an advantage in the presidency.
During last year’s election campaign, Biden bragged about being more capable of climbing stairs than Trump who was attacked by the media for touching a stairs railings once.
