Elon Musk suggests that anyone over the age of 70 should be barred from running for political office

Elon Musk recently suggested that anyone over 70 years old should be barred from running for political office. 

In a tweet on Thursday, the SpaceX and Tesla founder said: “Let’s set an age limit after which you can’t run for political office, perhaps a number just below 70.”

While no specific lawmaker was mentioned in the tweet, the current president, Joe Biden and his predecessor, Donald Trump are both over the age of 70. And Senator Bernie Sanders, who Musk has previously squabbled with, is 80 years old.

Last month, in response to Sanders’ tweet demanding that extremely wealthy Americans “pay their fair share,” Musk said, “I keep forgetting that you’re still alive,” Insider’s Morgan Keith reported.
