President-elect of the United States, Joe Biden, has a microfracture on his right foot after a fall while playing with one of his dogs over the past weekend.

According to the American press report, Joe Biden, 78, was playing with Major, one of his two German shepherds, at his home in Wilmington, Delaware, when he slipped and fell.

As a precaution, the President-elect went to an orthopedics clinic in Newark, Delaware, on Sunday, having undergone several tests that, while not indicating a serious injury, detected a micro-fracture in his right foot, which will force Joe Biden to wear a orthopedic boot for “several weeks”, according to orthopedist Kevin O’Connor, who assisted him.

In a post on the social network Twitter, Donald published a video of Joe Biden leaving the orthopedics clinic, accompanied by a message wishing the President-elect “quick improvements”.

The injury happened on the eve of Joe Biden receiving this Monday his first briefing presidential, a meeting with members of the Trump Administration at which the President-elect will have access to confidential information, one of the fundamental stages of the power transition.

For several weeks, Donald Trump refused to start the transition process. However, last Monday, the director of General Services Administration, Emily Murphy, gave the green light for funds to be released for Joe Biden’s team, while also allowing the President-elect to meet with federal agencies, including secret services.

Trump, however, has not yet acknowledged Biden’s victory and continues to try to challenge the results in court, despite accumulating successive defeats.

Usually, the President-elect and the Head of State meet during the transition process, however, so far, there is no date set for a meeting between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, although the Democrat has already shown availability for such.

Women’s team

The inauguration of the new President is scheduled for 20 January. Until then, Joe Biden continues to compose his presidential team and, on Sunday, announced that the communication department will be entirely composed of women, the first time this has happened in the country’s history.

The communications team will be led by Kate Bedingfield, until now the deputy director of the Biden campaign, who takes over as director of communications for the White House.

Among other appointments to highlight the choice of Jen Psaki – director of communications during the presidency of Barack Obama -, as press secretary.

Ashley Etienne and Symone Sanders will be the communication director and spokesperson for Kamala Harris, respectively. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Alexander will be responsible for the communication office of Jill Biden, future first lady.

“I am proud to announce the first White House communication team composed entirely of women. These qualified and experienced communicators bring different perspectives to their work and a shared commitment to rebuild this country ”, said Joe Biden in a statement.
