'I'm a young, vibrant man!' Trump says he'll beat Joe Biden 'easily' and claims 76-year-old former VP is making him look spry at 72

President Donald Trump said Friday morning that he expects to make quick work of former Vice President Joe Biden if he survives the grueling Democratic primary season.
'I think we beat him easily,' he told he told DailyMail.com outside the White House amid a reporter scrum as he left for a National Rifle association Speech in Indianapolis.
And he suggested that Biden, who would be 78 years old on Inauguration Day if he should win the 2020 election, is already showing his age on the campaign trail. Trump, 72, called himself 'a young, vibrant man.'
'I look at Joe, I don't know about him. I don't know,' he said. 'I would never say anyone's too old but I know they're all making me look very young both in terms of age and in terms of energy.'

BIden, at 76, would be the oldest president to take office in 2021; he's four years older than Trump, who currently holds that record; but Trump said Biden makes him look young and vibrant by comparison


As of April 25, 2019 there were 21 declared major party candidates in the 2020 presidential election.

Biden, the Democratic front-runner, is not the oldest person to challenge him for his job. That honor goes to Vermpont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who would be 79 on Day One at the White House if he were to win.
'I think that I feel like a young man. I'm so young!' a gleeful Trump exclaimed. 'I'm the youngest person! I'm a young, vibrant man.'
Biden has conceded that his age is a fair issue to raise as he makes his third attempt to win the White House.
'I think it’s totally appropriate for people to look at me and say, if I were to run for office again, "Well, God darn, you're old",' Biden told a crowd at the Economic Club of Southwestern Michigan in October
'Well, chronologically, I am old,' he said.
Trump was the oldest president to move into the White House in 2017, at 70 years, 220 days. Ronald Reagan entered office at 69 years, 349 days.

Hillary Clinton would have moved back to the White House at age 69 if she had won the presidency in 2016.
