The Question:

Do you have to be 35 to be the president?

The Answer:

The U.S. Constitution sets out the following requirements for the presidency.

"No person except a natural-born citizen, or citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States."

So yes, the minumum age is 35.
