President Biden’s officials reportedly “leave him alone” as often as they can on the weekends and tend to adjust his schedule to avoid tiring “an aging president,” according to the New York Times.
The outlet reported that officials have said they try to leave the president alone on weekends and tend to schedule all public appearances between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m.
A Democrat who chose to remain anonymous told the New York Times that Biden’s age was a popular discussion topic among prominent members of the party.
“At a small dinner earlier this year of former Democratic senators and governors, all of them in Mr. Biden’s generation, everyone at the table agreed he was too old to run again. Local leaders often call the White House to inquire about his health,” the outlet reported.
Biden officially announced he would be running for re-election in 2024 as voters have become increasingly concerned about his age and his ability to serve a second term.
The Times also reported that Biden’s aides limit his access to the press over concerns that he might make a major mistake.
Aides and officials that have known Biden for a while reportedly told the outlet that they have noticed “small changes” in the president.
“When he sits down, one former official said, he usually places a hand on his desk to hold his weight and rarely springs back up with his old energy,” the Times report read.
