Former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said it is “much too early” to be talking about 2020 when asked Monday about his plans for the future and whether he will run again for president in four years.

Sanders appeared at a CNN town hall broadcast with Chris Cuomo on Monday night to talk about issues facing Americans such as Trump’s appointees, the future of Obama's Affordable Care Act, and how the Democrat party will move forward after President-elect Donald Trump takes office next week.

When asked whether he would consider running for president again in 2020, the senator from Vermont said, “It is much too early to be talking about that.” He went on to talk about his campaign and its impact on the 2016 election.

“What we have got to worry about is how we deal with the issues that impact us today,” Sanders said. “One of the reasons that we had success in our campaign — we also surprised a lot of people — is that we talked about issues that people believed in,” Sanders said.

If Sanders did get elected president in 2020, it would make him the oldest president in U.S. history at age 79. Former President Ronald Reagan left office at age 77.

Other Democrats who might consider a 2020 Democratic run include Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and California Sen. Kamala Harris, The Huffington Post speculated.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton also has not officially ruled out running for president in 2020, but a confidante told CNN she didn't expect Clinton to run for any elected office again.
