Biden won't commit to 1 term, says age is 'legitimate' issue

April 26, 2019 - 12:12 pm

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Vice President Joe Biden says he has no plans to limit himself to one term if he's elected president in 2020.

The 76-year-old Democrat told ABC's "The View" on Friday that his age is a "legitimate question" and that voters can decide whether he is up to the demands of the presidency.

Biden would be the oldest president in American history. He said he hopes to show that age has brought "wisdom and experience that can make things a lot better."

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is the oldest Democratic presidential candidate. He's 77, the same age as Ronald Reagan when the 40th president left office at the end of two terms.

President Donald Trump is 72. In 2017 became the oldest newly inaugurated president.
