Former President Jimmy Carter said he couldn’t have handled the presidency at 80 years old — seemingly taking jabs at some presidential candidates who are well into their 70s.
Carter, 95, served as the 39th U.S. president from 1977 until 1981, when he was in his 50s. Speaking during his annual report at the Carter Center in Atlanta, Ga., on Tuesday, he said he hopes “there’s an age limit” to serving in one of the most powerful positions in the world.
The article goes on to state the following:
“If I were just 80 years old, if I was 15 years younger, I don’t believe I could undertake the duties I experienced when I was president,” he told the crowd after being asked about whether he would run in 2020 since he can technically still run for office.
“For one thing, you have to be very flexible with your mind,” Carter continued. WATCH his remarks in the video below:
