Best Answer

No - only a minimum age.

According to Article II, Clause 5 of the US Constitution:

No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of

the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall

any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty

five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

Practical considerations limit the maximum age since the human body wears out to such a degree and campaigning is so grueling that it is unlikely that anyone would be running for president when they were in their 90's.

The two major candidates in the 2016 Presidential election were 70 (Trump) and 69 (Clinton).

When he takes office, Trump will be the oldest person to be elected to a FIRST term as President of the USA (at 70 years, 220 days)

Ronald Reagan was 69 years, 349 days when he first took office. He was 73 when he ran for (and won) his second term as President and served until he was 77 years, 349 days old.

Had she been elected, Hilary Clinton would have been the second oldest President-elect, behind Reagan.

No- there is no fixed maximum age for the US President. Of course, there are practical age limitations.

NO, there is not a limit to how old a President can be. As long as they can work well and are in their right mind it is perfectly fine to campaign for presidency even if you're over 80.
