Former President Donald Trump mocked President Joe Biden for using the ‘children’s stairs’ to board Air Force One and for photos that showed him napping on the beach, during a Monday afternoon rally in New Hampshire.
Trump visited the Granite State Monday to make his candidacy official, visiting the New Hampshire statehouse in Concord to register his name on the 2024 Republican ballot for the nation’s first primary.
He then spoke to supporters for around 100 minutes in nearby Derry, where he gleefully slapped around Biden.
‘Crooked Joe can’t even walk up the children’s stairs on Air Force One,’ Trump said to laughs.
After several stumbling incidents, the 80-year-old commander-in-chief has been using the shorter staircase to board and deplane Air Force One.

President Joe Biden is seen boarding Air Force One in July using the shorter set of stairs. He has boarded and deplaned the presidential aircraft using these stairs after several stumbling incidents
Trump took notice, telling his crowd Monday that they probably would like to see someone walk off Air Force One ‘nice and high … wave to everyone.’
‘This guys goes to the little stairs. We call them the children’s stairs. And now he’s made it a common practice because he can’t quite make it up or down,’ Trump said. ‘He has a bigger time making it up. Usually that’s easier,’ the 77-year-old ex-president noted.
Axios reported in September that Biden was working with a physical therapist and wearing sneakers more in an attempt not to trip.
Earlier Monday on Truth Social, Trump had shared an Instagram post from the rapper 50 Cent who had posted a DailyMail.com story previewing the Bidens Rehoboth trip with the commentary, ‘hey Joe, get the fvck up, we in trouble man.’
The photo used in the story was one of the president asleep on the beach in August alongside first lady Jill Biden who was reading a book.
The president and first lady were returning to the White House from Rehoboth in the hours ahead of Trump’s campaign event, making Biden’s beach-going ways ripe fodder for the ex-president.
‘You know he goes to the beach alot right?’ Trump said during one portion of his speech. ‘If he would have gone to the beach and not done anything, we would have the best border,’ the ex-president claimed.
Trump shared a post from rapper 50 Cent that used his image from August and then ridiculed President Joe Biden for sleeping on the beach when ‘we have potentially World War III going on.’ The Bidens visited Rehoboth over the weekend but the president didn’t sleep on the beach

The ex-president also brought up Biden’s speech last September, in which the president spoke in front of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, lit up in red, and warned the country about Trump and his MAGA Republicans.
‘I watched Biden with that one, remember the one with the red background? Looked like the devil,’ Trump recalled. ‘The same set designer who does the same set of him at the beach,’ the ex-president joked.
‘Somebody think he looks good at the beach,’ Trump continued. ‘I don’t think so.’
‘You know those chairs are meant so a child can pick them up,’ the former president added.
Despite Trump’s many trips to Mar-a-Lago and Bedminster to golf during his four years in office, the ex-president characterized Biden’s beach trip as a dereliction of duty.
‘You see this guy walking around. And then he sleeps on the beach all day long. And we have potentially World War III going on,’ Trump said. ‘It’s horrible. It’s horrible to watch, it’s horrible to see.’
‘But he made that speech with that horrible red background and that background might have been worse than the beach,’ Trump said, circling back to last year’s address. ‘And he talks about MAGA, MAGA, MAGA,’ Trump said.
Biden was not photographed napping on the beach during this weekend’s trip to Rehoboth.
He was pictured walking along the beach with his wife, going to church and going to a restaurant.
