Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that former President Donald Trump was too old to be president of the United States.
Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Your campaign keeps a running list and keeps tweeting a running list of Donald Trump’s fumbles and accidents and confused moments, that’s what they call them, saying this is why his handlers won’t let him debate, noting times that trump has forgot what state he is in, times he has confused Biden and Obama, confused Kristi Noem and on and on. What do you think about Donald Trump’s mental fitness? Do you think he’s too old to be president?”
DeSantis said, “I have said publicly the president is not a job for an 80-year-old. Donald Trump will be order on July 2025 than Biden was in January 2021.
