Why I’m seeking reelection despite my age — Biden 

Joe Biden, America’s oldest-ever president, said Monday he understood a focus on his age but that he was running for re-election because Donald Trump wanted to “destroy” US democracy.The 80-year-old usually avoids the age issue but addressed it during a fundraiser at a Broadway theatre in New York, saying his experience helped him deal with crises like Ukraine and Covid.”A lot of people seem focused on my age,” Biden said. “I get it believe me, I know it more than anyone.”

He added: “I’m running because democracy is at stake because in 2024 democracy is on the ballot once again. And let there be no question: Donald Trump and his MAGA Republicans are determined to destroy American democracy.”
