The age of a U.S. President is outlined in Article II of the U.S. Constitution.
The Constitution specifies a minimum age – 35 – for a person to be elected President of the United States, but not a maximum age.
Age comes to mind as President Biden recently turned 80. If he runs for re-election and wins, he would exit the Oval Office at age 86. Former President Donald Trump is running again and would be age 78, if elected, and age 82 when his term ended.
But should there be an upper age limit for the presidency? After all, it’s reasonable to ask whether a person in his upper 70s and into his 80s might not be up to the rigors of such a challenging job.
