Biden Acknowledges His Age is ‘Legitimate’ Issue

Former Vice President Joe Biden said on Tuesday evening that his age would be a “legitimate” and “relevant” issue in 2020 if he decides to run against Donald Trump for the presidency.

“I think age is a totally legitimate thing to raise,” the 75-year-old Biden said at a Michigan event. “I think it’s totally appropriate for people to look at me and say if I were to run for office again, ‘Well God darn you’re old.’ Well chronologically I am old.”

Biden, who has said he will make a decision on a 2020 run after the midterm elections, added: “Every voter is entitled to know exactly what kind of shape you’re in. You owe it to them. It’s a legitimate question and so I think age is relevant.”
