Nikki Haley made another argument for why President Joe Biden, 81, and former President Donald Trump, 77, are too old for another term.
The 52-year-old presidential candidate mentioned other careers with an age limit of 65, such as pilots and military officers.
Haley also argued during a NewsNation interview Tuesday night that Republican front-runner Trump is distracted. She mentioned that his mind is on multiple lawsuits against him and non-campaign-related companies, like his new gold sneakers that sell for $399, instead of doing what’s best for Americans.
The age issue comes amid growing concerns specifically about Biden’s fitness for office after a Justice Department report released this month called the president an “older man” with a “poor memory” and “diminished faculties.” “.
Nikki Haley told NewsNation in an interview Tuesday night that Donald Trump and Joe Biden are too old for office as they addressed their risk of dementia.
Donald Trump showed up at Sneaker Con Philadelphia over the weekend in a gold pair of Never Surrender high-tops that sell online for $399.
Special prosecutor Robert Hur concluded that he would not recommend charging Biden in the classified documents case because a jury would hesitate to convict a man they do not believe has the “willful state of mind” to commit a “serious crime.”
“I think if you ask any doctor, they’ll tell you that when you’re 80, you’re prone to that.” [dementia],’ Haley told NewsNation when asked about Biden and Trump’s mental state in their older ages.
“Look, there’s a reason pilots can’t fly after age 65. There’s a reason the military forces you to retire before age 65,” the former United Nations ambassador added. “We have serious problems.”
“None of that is normal behavior from either of them,” he said, referring to Biden allowing open borders and focusing on gender pronouns in schools and Trump “mocking military members” by questioning their whereabouts. of her deployed husband.
‘What I’m saying is that Americans say in polls that 70 percent want normality again, they don’t want chaos. “They don’t want this mess,” he added.
While the ages of Biden and Trump are increasingly in question, Haley is also questioning the former president’s priorities amid an avalanche of lawsuits and figuring out how to continue moving his life and legal battles forward.
At a sneaker conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, over the weekend, Trump debuted his $399 pair of gold shoes called the Never Surrender High-Top Sneaker.
“This is something I’ve been talking about for 12 years, 13 years, and I think it’s going to be a huge success,” Trump said during his remarks at Sneaker Con Philadelphia.
President Joe Biden, 81, has faced growing doubts about his fitness for office after a Justice Department report described him as an “older man” with a “poor memory” and “diminished faculties.”
Haley says this is just another avenue to make money.
“It’s not focused on the American people,” Haley told NewsNation. “He’s focused on the shoes.”
‘I think you can see it in his campaign reports: he spent $50 million in campaign contributions on his personal court cases. Think about it.’
“I mean, look where all his attention is going,” he added. “Look at his tweets, look at the gold shoes, look at the campaign contributions — it all has to do with his court cases.”
‘How are you going to focus on the American people, when you’re completely distracted by your court cases? That’s the point I’m trying to make. “We can’t afford that,” Haley said.
“We can’t have a presidential candidate who goes on and on about the victim he is and focuses on how he’s going to pay his legal fees and doesn’t focus on the American people.”
Trump’s new sneakers were unveiled a day after a New York judge ordered him to pay $355 million as part of a civil fraud case that alleged the Trump Organization inflated the value of his properties.
