Look at Wake Up Singapore using Donald Trump’s age doing a comparison on why Trump can be a President at 70 but Minister Tharman is considered “old” to be the PM.
Since when did anyone said Tharman is too “old” to be the PM when he had already clarified that it is not his ambition to be the PM! What lies!
“I know myself, I know what I can do and it’s not me. I’m good at policy-making, good at advising my younger colleagues and supporting the PM, not being the PM. That’s not my ambition and that’s not me,” he said.”Just think back to our early years, when we had people like Dr Goh Keng Swee and Mr Rajaratnam. Their contributions to Singapore were immense, and till today they are in a league of their own, but even they would not have been ideal as a Prime Minister,” DPM Tharman said.
