President Donald Trump on Friday called himself “a young, vibrant man,” taking a dig at Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, who eclipse him in age by a few years.
“I think that I just feel like a young man,” Trump told reporters on the White House lawn. “I’m so young. I can’t believe it, I’m the youngest person.”
The 72-year-old president has said he anticipates taking on one of the two Democratic front-runners in the 2020 general election — Biden, who is 76, or Sanders, who is 77.
“They are all making me look young both in terms of age and, I think, in terms of energy,” Trump said to reporters. “I think you people know that better than anybody.”
