Last year, Donald Trump made history when he took the oath(宣誓)of office as the 45th president of the United States. At 70 years old, he became the oldest elected president. Before Trump, Ronald Reagan was the oldest person to take office. He was 69 years old when he became president in 1981.

As the first billionaire president, Trump also replaced John F. Kennedy, the 35th president, as the richest president. Kennedy still holds the record for the youngest person to be elected president. He was 43 when he took office(就职). Kennedy is also the youngest president to die in office. He was assassinated(暗杀)) in 1963 in Dallas, Texas. He was only 46 years old.
