(TheRedAlertNews.com) – In an interview with ABC’s David Muir that aired today, President Joe Biden, the oldest president in U.S. history at 80 years old, was pressed about and addressed concerns about his age in regard to potential reelection in 2024.
Biden admitted that it is “legitimate” for people to raise questions about his age, but he also dismissed those legitimate concerns by saying “Watch me.”
The issue of Biden’s age has been a topic of discussion among both Democrats and Republicans, with former South Carolina governor and potential 2024 presidential candidate, Nikki Haley, suggesting that individuals over 75 should be subjected to a mental competency test.
Former President Donald Trump agreed with Haley.
However, the White House has brushed off these attacks, with the deputy press secretary, Andrew Bates, stating that Republicans have failed in their attempts to play the “age card.”
Despite concerns about his age, President Biden showed confidence in his ability to carry out his duties as commander-in-chief.
He acknowledged the recent statement made by first lady Jill Biden that he would run for a second term, saying “he’s not done.” He added that he has other things he wants to finish before he dives into a full-blown campaign.
More than a few political observers have raised the issue of President Biden’s age and acknowledged it is a legitimate concern for the future of the country.
With the president being the oldest in U.S. history, it is important to ensure that he has the mental and physical capacity to carry out the responsibilities of the presidency.
The American people deserve to have a president who is capable of making critical decisions, and at 80 years old, there are valid questions about Biden’s ability to lead the country.
It is also important to consider that the presidency is a demanding and strenuous job, and the physical and mental toll it takes on a person is significant. For American voters, it is their duty to ensure that the best interests of the country are at the forefront, and that includes ensuring that the president is in good health and capable of serving the American people.
