United States President Joe Biden fell to the ground this Saturday during a bike ride near the beach in the state of Delaware, where he is spending the weekend with his wife, Jill Biden.

The 79-year-old president lost his balance when he stopped to greet several neighbors but members of the Secret Service quickly helped him.

“I’m fine,” the Democratic leader responded to the press, who explained that he fell because his shoes got caught in the pedals.

The mishap occurred during a morning bike ride with his wife, dressed in sportswear, helmet and gloves, in Rehoboth Beach (Delaware), where he spends the weekend, since Monday is a holiday.

Questioned about other issues, he stated that he is studying a possible reduction in tariffs on China and that “soon” he will speak with his counterpart from the Asian giant, Xi Jinping.

He also said he was “happy” with the agreement of a group of Democratic and Republican senators to push through a bill with some gun control measures.

In March of last year, Biden tripped three times while climbing the stairs of the presidential plane, Air Force One, but the White House downplayed the matter.
