Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Tuesday took an apparent dig at President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump over their ages, saying the role of commander in chief “is not a job for someone that’s 80.”

Biden, the Democratic incumbent, would be 86 by the end of a potential second term, while Trump would be 82 by that time.

In a new interview, DeSantis said age is an “absolutely legitimate concern” for voters as we head into the 2024 presidential election cycle.

“The presidency is not a job for someone that’s 80 years old,” DeSantis told “CBS Evening News.” 

DeSantis explained the position requires someone who can perform at 100%.
