Trump Has Embarrassing Moment Boarding Air Force One
As US president, people are watching you all the time no matter where you go and at what time of day. So there’s little room for gaffes.
Yesterday, US President Donald had an embarrassing moment when boarding Air Force One. After attending a rally in Minneapolis, President Trump was headed to another event in Rochester, Minnesota. Upon exiting the presidential limo at Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) airport, Trump ascended the stairs of the Boeing C-32 with an extra addition to his outfit.
There appeared to be toilet paper, or a tissue of some kind, stuck to the bottom of the president’s shoe.
With his hoards of aides and secret service surrounding him constantly, it’s a bid odd that no one notified him before he got out of the limo that there was something attached to his shoe.
The aircraft Trump was flying on is not his main ride, the Boeing 747-200. This appeared to be what the Vice-President usually travels on, a variant of the Boeing 757-200. But whenever a sitting US president is aboard a jet, that aircraft is then designated Air Force One.
This isn’t the first time a US president has had an embarrassing moment on Air Force One’s stairs. In 1975, President Gerald Ford slipped down the stairs while deplaning in Austria on rainy day.
In July, President Trump authorized the $3.9 billion purchase of two new Boeing 747-8 which will become Air Force One aircraft. Trump also plans on changing the iconic color scheme of the presidential jet to an American flag themed red, white and blue.
