(FILES) (COMBO) This combination of file pictures created on February 16, 2022 shows former US President Donald Trump during a visit to the border wall near Pharr, Texas on June 30, 2021 and US President Joe Biden during a visit to Germanna Community College in Culpeper, Virginia, on February 10, 2022. - While the stakes could hardly be higher for American democracy, voters are increasingly turned off by the apparently inevitable rematch between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Joe Biden has joked about it, ignored it and suggested it makes him wise. A year out from the US presidential election, the issue of his age just won’t go away. Donald Trump was impeached twice. He has been found liable in fraud and sexual abuse lawsuits. He is charged with 91 felonies, accused of recklessly endangering national security, and of conspiring to defraud the United States. Young US voters have been through graduations, new jobs and the end of Covid restrictions since the last presidential election, but next year's likely Trump-Biden rematch has left many Americans in their early 20s with an uneasy sense of deja vu.
