Joe Biden is 78 years old: how old were other presidents at the time of the inauguration
The average age of presidents who have taken office since 1960 is about 56 years. Trump was 70 when he became president in 2017. And President-elect Joe Biden turns 20 today, November 78, making him the oldest president in US history. More about the age of presidents told the publication USA Today.
Biden will be older than any other US president on his inauguration day. He will break the record set by his predecessor, President Donald Trump, who was 2017 when he took office in January 70.
The average age of presidents who have taken office since 1960 is about 56 years. When Trump took office, he barely broke the record for President Ronald Reagan (69). Reagan is still the oldest president at the time of leaving office - then he was 77 years old. But it is obvious that Biden will manage to break this record too.
Biden called his age an advantage, stating that it serves as a "bridge" to the next "generation of leaders."
Biden's election is an anomaly for the Democratic Party. Democratic presidents were usually younger than their Republican counterparts. Indeed, of the five youngest presidents ever elected, three were Democrats: John F. Kennedy (43), Bill Clinton (46), and Barack Obama (47).
Biden is the oldest except for one of the five living presidents, Jimmy Carter, who is now 96, making him the longest-serving president ever elected, but took office at the age of 52.
