Joe Biden will most likely take on Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis in the 2024 General Election.
DeSantis and Trump share similar views when it comes to the issues of the day.
But Ron DeSantis just revealed one major issue that he believes sets him apart from Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
One of the biggest issues clouding Joe Biden’s reelection bid is his old age and severely declining mental faculties.
Biden is the oldest President in American history but thinks he can convince voters to keep him around for another four years.
But polling suggests otherwise.
One poll taken last month by the Associated Press-NORC showed a staggering three fourths of Americans believe Biden is too old to serve four more years in the White House.
But Joe Biden is not the only candidate facing questions about his age.
Donald Trump is 77 years old and would be 82 by the end of his second term.
Of course, there is a huge difference between Trump and Biden’s health.
Donald Trump’s mental and physical abilities are top notch while Biden’s have been in rapid decline for quite some time.
But Trump is still getting up there in age and will eventually succumb to the forces of nature.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who turned 45 on Thursday, did not shy away from admitting that Trump’s age is a “legitimate concern” for voters.
During an interview on CBS Evening News, DeSantis told host Norah O’Donnell he believes both Trump and Biden’s age are very legitimate concerns.
“I think that’s absolutely a legitimate concern,” he said. “The Presidency is not a job for someone who is 80 years old.”
However, DeSantis pointed out that of course he believes “there’s nothing wrong with being 80.”
“Obviously, I’m the Governor of Florida,” he said. “I know a lot of people who are elderly.”
“They’re great people,” DeSantis continued, before adding “but you’re talking about a job where you need to give it 100%.”
America needs “an energetic President,” DeSantis told O’Donnell.
DeSantis then turned the conversation back to Joe Biden and why he can defeat him in 2024.
Biden is twice DeSantis’ age, and the Governor believes “a lot of Americans are going to want to see a generational passing of the torch.”
