President Trump: Jimmy Carter Was a TERRIBLE President

Fact checked
President Trump slams Jimmy Carter as a terrible president

President Trump hit back at former President Jimmy Carter on Saturday, referring to him as a “terrible president”.

“Look, he was a nice man. He was a terrible president,” Trump told reporters in Japan during the G20 summit.

“He’s a Democrat. And it’s a typical talking point. He’s loyal to the Democrats. And I guess you should be,” he added. “As everybody now understands, I won not because of Russia, not because of anybody but myself.” reports: Trump said Saturday that he won the election because he worked harder than Clinton, adding that he’d “felt badly” for Carter because he’d “been trashed within his own party.”

“He’s been badly trashed,” Trump continued. “He’s like the forgotten president. And I understand why they say that. He was not a good president.”

Trump’s remarks came after Carter said Friday during an event in Leesburg, Va., “There’s no doubt that the Russians did interfere in the elections 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,” Carter said. When asked if he thinks Trump is an illegitimate president, he added, “Based on what I just said, which I can’t retract.”

Former special counsel Robert Mueller found Russia did interfere in the 2016 election to help Trump win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. But neither Mueller nor the U.S. intelligence community has said Russia’s efforts, which included hacking Democratic organizations and a disinformation campaign, contributed directly to Trump’s victory.

Mueller also did not find sufficient evidence to charge any members or associates of Trump’s campaign with conspiring with Russia in its interference efforts, though he also declined to exonerate the president.

Trump has maintained his innocence, repeatedly casting doubt on the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the election in order to help his candidacy.


  1. I don’t give a damn what Mueller said, he’s a known LIAR and fixer for Clintons. He is corrupt as hell. The author of this article is being very sneaky, trying to make Trump look guilty – but, WHY would Putin favor Trump over Hillary? Hillary sold him 20% of U.S. uranium, he could have done business with her to weaken America. And Trump did NOT collude with Russia to win, why would he do that? He won fair and square, Hillary lied she did NOT win by 3 million votes. Trump won because he found Hillary’s crooked algorithm that would have made her won. He found it and fixed it, that is why he won.

  2. Carter’s campaign slogan when he ran was…”Jimmy Who?!” And today who cares what the most pathetic President of modern times has to say! Jimmy Who?
