Following President Joe Biden's fall at the U.S. Air Force Academy graduation ceremony, former President Donald Trump sent him his best wishes. As Biden appeared to drop to his knees before falling backward, he required assistance from three individuals to regain his footing.

When former President Trump learned of the situation, he stated with concern, "[w]ell, I hope he wasn't hurt," while addressing his supporters at a rally in Iowa. This was in response to the viral video of Trump descending a ramp at West Point Military Academy. There was much online speculation about the incident, causing The Hill to later advise in an article that anyone in a similar situation should take caution, even if it means tiptoeing down the ramp. The incident sparked conversations about the possible effects of aging on physical abilities and raised important questions about talking points during political campaigns.

"How unfortunate. A horrible place to fall is there. That doesn't inspire me," he said.

During a speech at the 2020 West Point graduation ceremony, Trump reflected on the personal challenges he's faced, including negotiating a slick ramp. Despite the difficulty, he remained resolute and persisted, demonstrating his determination and resilience in the face of adversity. This drive to overcome obstacles is what makes great leaders, and it's a valuable lesson to remember in life.

A sandbag on the stage is what the White House is blaming for the misstep.

Since his time as President, Joe Biden has consistently been beset by age-related attacks, with critics suggesting he may not have the stamina or mental fortitude required of the office. This viewpoint has been reinforced by Biden's unfortunate tendency to make gaffes and relate awkward stories on the campaign trail, further compounding doubts about his fitness for public service.
