When interviewed by TIME magazine, President Biden dismissed concerns about his age and ability to serve as president into his mid-80s.

When asked if he could do the job as well at age 85 given the demands of the second term and polling that shows most Americans worry he is too old, Biden stated “I can do it better than anybody you know.”

He added he had not considered not running due to his age and told Americans to “watch me” and pointed to his legislative record so far.

“The last two years of Presidents, two-term President’s tenure are usually focused on foreign affairs. You are 81 years old, and would be 86 by the time you left office,” a reporter asked Biden. “Large majorities of Americans, including in the Democratic Party, tell pollsters they think you are too old to lead. Could you really do this job as an 85-year-old man?”

“I can do it better than anybody you know,” Biden said. “You’re looking at me, I can take you too.”

“Look, name me a president that’s gotten as much done as I’ve gotten done in my first three and a half years,” Biden added.

However, recent polls show a growing number believe Biden is declining as president and that his age would severely impact his ability to serve, though some polls also show views of no or little effect.

At 81, Biden is currently the oldest president in U.S. history and would leave office at 86 if re-elected to a second term.
