President Joe Biden refused to call people wrong for saying he should stop down after one term due to his age.
Biden argued instead that he has more work to do that requires a second term in serving the American people.

“They’re not right or wrong,” Biden told CNN in an interview that aired Sunday. “Look, to use the phrase again, I think we’re at an inflection point. I think the world is changing. And I think there is one thing that comes with age, if you’re — been honest about it your whole life, and that is some wisdom.”
“I think we’re on the cusp of being able to make significant positive changes in the world,” he said.

The news comes as yet another poll shows Americans believe Biden is too old to serve a second term.
"And while Mr. Biden fares better than either of his would-be opponents, the incumbent president nevertheless remains chained to concerns about his age, which dominated the minds of most voters that asked for their one-word summation of him," Newsbreak reported.
"Altogether, the poll results signaled that Americans are largely unsatisfied with the options they have for leadership over the next half-decade," it added.
At 80 years old, Biden is already the nation's oldest serving president. He would be 86 at the end of a second term.
The president's numerous gaffes also add to concerns about his older age as he seeks to win a second term in 2024.
The battle may be in his favor however if he faces Trump in a rematch. Trump is 77, just three years behind the age of the current president.
