Carter advises Trump to "tell the truth for a change"

Jun 2013
1. Former President Jimmy Carter said Friday morning that Donald Trump is an illegitimate president due to Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Carter, 94, was speaking at a Carter Center event on human rights in Leesburg, Va., when he was asked how he would deal with Russian meddling in the last presidential election.

“The president himself should condemn it, admit that it happened, which I think 16 intelligence agencies have already agreed to say,” said Carter. “And there’s no doubt that the Russians did interfere in the election, and I think the interference although not yet quantified, if fully investigated would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016. He lost the election, and he was put into office because the Russians interfered on his behalf.”...

2. WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter on Tuesday accused President Donald Trump of stonewalling by preventing administration officials from testifying before the House impeachment inquiry.

"My advice to him would be to tell the truth, I think, for a change," Carter told MSNBC. "And also to cut back on his Twitter feeds and give the House of Representatives and also the Senate, and I would say, the general public, the evidence that — that we need to form a case, either for or against him."...

3. As Jimmy Carter is sure Jesus Christ swung a hammer a lot, it won't come as surprise to find possibly the most religious US president in history "swinging his big hammer" to advise the pathological liar to "tell the truth for a change". :)

Carters post presidency life is an admirable one, he was a horrible president...
Carters presidency would've a lot better if he'd have had some congressional support. He supported any and all means of creating energy here. He also wanted to fix our economic woes. Problem was, the American people didn't want to go through what it would've taken to fix it. Higher interest rates, gas prices and inflation were too much for the country.
So we ended up with Reagan and Reaganomics. Which as we all know, doesn't work. Volcker sabotaged Carter.
It's my understanding that Carter was all for drilling, nuclear power, coal, renewables etc etc. Anything and everything that could get us energy independent. But the oil companies here didn't wanna "drill baby drill." They'd rather just buy it from a foreign country and import it back here. Some of that was due to the lack of oil finding technology back then.

IDK, It just seems that Carter wanted to actually fix things. And the congress and the American people just wanted to kick the can down the road.

thanks for confirming my point


at this point, while I'd love to have another scandal-free presidency like Carter or Obama, I'd be cool with one that's not riddled with daily scandals, like trump.

Carter hits the nail on the head, and I wish people with dignity, like him, would be in office again.
