President Joe Biden turns 80 on Sunday, making serval ask “how old is too old to run the White House?”

Biden’s 80th birthday means that he is the first octogenarian president in U.S. history, making him the oldest person to serve as President.

The President has hinted that he will run for re-election in 2024, however many, including Democrats, have voiced concern that Biden is not mentally fit to be in a position of power. 

If he would seek another term, Biden would be 86 by the time his second term ends. 

According to a Reuters/ Ipsos poll, 68 percent of voters believe Biden is too old to be president, while 86 percent of Americans say that age 75 or younger should be the cutoff in which a serving president can be.

Why yes, Mr. President you are slowing up, and it’s shows in every speech you give. 

If Biden would decide to run in 2024, he would break his own record he set in 2020 of being the oldest president to serve the U.S.

Meanwhile, Former President Trump announced his bid for presidency in 2024 earlier this week, should he win, he would be 82 years old by the time his second four year term ends.
