President Donald Trump celebrated his 73rd birthday Friday.

Trump is the oldest president ever sworn in for a first term. Before Trump took office in 2017, Ronald Reagan was the oldest person to take the presidential oath of office. He was 69 years old at his first inauguration in 1981.

Reagan marked eight birthdays during his time in the White House, including his 72nd.

Two years ago on his birthday, Trump, continuing a long-standing tradition, declared the week to be Flag Week.

"I am blessed to have shared my birthday with the Star Spangled Banner and the US Army for 71 years now. Again, on Flag Day, I am deeply grateful to live under the red, white and blue, and all for which it stands," he said in a written statement.
