As the 2024 presidential election in the United States of America approaches, a myriad of speculations and discussions have been going on in the political space, with some candidates engulfed in controversies.
The latest to add his voice to the political discourse is Meek Mill, who argues that the current president, Joe Biden, is too old to seek reelection as president of the country.
In a tweet, Meek Mill argued that Biden’s age would be a challenge as he may find it difficult to effectively lead the nation. He said, “Joe Biden is too old to be our president ‘respectfully.”
At 82 years old, he would be the oldest president in U.S. history if he were to seek and win re-election.
While age should not be the sole determining factor in evaluating a candidate’s suitability for office, many have expressed it is a legitimate concern that deserves careful consideration.
One of the primary concerns surrounding President Biden’s age is his health and stamina.
While the POTUS has shown resilience and vigor thus far, there is a valid concern about whether he can sustain the demanding nature of the presidency for another four years.
Aside from his age, Meek Mill also expressed concerns about Biden’s comments about crime in cities like New York City and his native Philadelphia, taking into consideration Mill is an advocate for criminal justice.
Radio host Charlamagne Tha God, has also expressed his disapproval of Joe Biden.
As the guest host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” last month, Charlamagne cited Biden’s old age and poor polling as reasons he isn’t the best bet to beat Trump, who is the 2024 GOP presidential primary front-runner.
He urged Biden to deliver the “ultimate Christmas gift” to America by dropping out of the race.
