June 14, 2016 -- Donald Trump celebrates his 70th birthday. Real estate developer, business magnate and TV personality Donald Trump is bidding to become the 45th President of the United States in the election of November 2016. Perhaps the wealthiest man ever to run for president, Trump’s net worth is estimated at $4 billion. Trump's outspoken views, particularly on immigration, have earned him popular support in much of middle America despite frequent controversies in the media.

GN NEWSAHEAD: Donald Trump turns 70 with his sights set on being elected president on Nov 6. Should the Republican achieve his goal, he will make history as the oldest U.S. president-elect, a title held at present by the late Ronald Reagan.

Age appears to be the least of widespread concerns about a Trump presidency, possibly because so many of his party rivals are not far behind. Meanwhile, Democratic contender Bernie Sanders is five years older than the New York billionaire and television personality.

Three-times married Trump was born on Jun 14, 1946 in New York City and his doctor has attested to his current good health.

Age no longer carries the stigma it did in previous eras, but according to the New Yorker Magazine, Americans have tended to choose younger men for the highest office. Franklin D. Roosevelt was 50 when he won his first term; John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama were in their forties. Even Eisenhower, grandfatherly affect and all, was only 62 when he took the White House for the first time.

Trump's fellow Republican Reagan turned 70 a short time after his election; age had dominated discussion about his eligibility in the late 1970s. At 69, Democrat Hillary Clinton would be just a few months younger than Reagan was, if she were elected. Age has not been mentioned as a handicap for her. Some two-thirds of the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates were over 60, with virtually no questions about whether they are too old to govern - the question that dogged Reagan. The only exception is Sanders, whose age has been raised as a potential drawback.
