Former Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gave her insights on what she thought about President Joe Biden and his age. His age has become a hot topic lately since he is 80 years old and competing for a second term.
Clinton, 76, is the wife of former President Bill Clinton who served from 1992 to 2000 so she understands the dynamics and stress involved of the person holding that office.
The former secretary of state and senator from New York recently shared her thoughts on Biden.
Hillary Clinton was asked about President Biden and his age by Financial Times Editor Edward Luce as the President slipped on his G7 trips.
Clinton didn’t hold back and said:
"It's a concern for anyone. We've had presidents who had fallen before who were a lot younger, and people didn't go into heart palpitations."
"But his age is an issue, and people have every right to consider it. But, you know, he has this great saying — and I think he's right — don't judge him for running against the Almighty but against the alternative. I am of the camp that I think he's determined to run; he has a good record that, three years ago, people would not have predicted would have gotten done. He doesn't get the credit yet for what is happening out in the country in terms of jobs and growth and planning for the future with CHIPS and other stuff.”
“So, I obviously hope he stays very focused and able to compete in the election because I think he can be re-elected, and that's what we should all hope for."
