(PartiallyPolitics.com) – In a new interview with ABC’s David Muir, President Biden said that the concerns regarding his age are “totally legitimate.” The President’s age has become a topic of discussion as many are questioning whether Biden will choose to seek a reelection campaign.

During the interview, Muir directly asked Biden, 80, whether his age was a consideration when he made the decision on whether or not he would run again. Biden replied it was not a consideration, but that the concerns that people have raised regarding his age were completely “legitimate.” He added that the only thing that he could tell those with concerns regarding his age was to “Watch me.”

Biden is the oldest president in U.S. history. If he were to win reelection in 2024, then he would be sworn into office at 82. This has led to many criticizing his age from both sides.

Republican Nikki Haley when launching her 2024 presidential campaign said that she would try to make mental competency tests mandatory for all those working who are over the age of 75. However, the White House dismissed Haley’s comments, with White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates stating that the Republicans have tried the age criticisms before and were unsuccessful.

During the ABC interview, Biden also acknowledged his wife, first lady Jill Biden’s comments from an interview last week in Kenya, in which she said that “He’s not done.”

Biden proceeded to note that he had a few more things to finish before launching a “full-blown campaign.”
