Video shows Ms Harris confidently stepping down the stairs with her husband Doug before taking a little stumble.

Her foot appears to slip down the step which catches on her heel – sending her briefly lurching forward.

Kamala managed to steady herself however, and carry on – raising her hand as she appeared to assure those nearby that she was fine.

The incoming VP however did look slightly nervous as she narrowly averted what could have been a rather nasty and embarrassing blunder before she take offices.

Several beady-eyed viewers appeared to catch the mishap and took to social media.

"Someone throw Kamala’s shoe away. She almost trip down the stairs" one Twitter user wrote.

Another added: "kamala don’t think i didn’t jus watch u trip over ur step in the inauguration live stream. i saw it."

Others said "we need the step that made Kamala trip taken out" and "nice save on that almost trip, Kamala".

"I’m so glad Kamala Harris caught herself from that lil trip down the stairs lol," another wrote.

And one added: "That little trip of Kamala’s and her relieved reaction of making it to the bottom of the stairs broke me."
