UPPER Age Limit For President?

Should we ever adopt an upper age limit for President, what should it be?

IMHO, I'd say one must be UNDER age 70 on 1st day on job (Jan. 20th) as President.

BTW: Ronald Reagan turned 70 about two weeks after taking office.

Trump would be grandfathered in (pun intended) obviously.

The expected life expectancy for my generation is 90 years. Gen Z will only be middle age when age reversal treatments become a thing. An upper age limit will end up handicapping 1/2 the potential canadates once all the Baby Boomers die off. The better option is to lower the age to 25 to help get new blood in and add mental health requirements so crazies and demented people don't get in.
