Former US President is the latest in the list of people who spoke out their mind against President Trump. None have been ecstatic about Trump in the role of President since the day the election results were announced in 2016. Moreover, many accused him of using Russian interference to help win the world’s most popular election. So, Jimmy Carter suggested a full investigation in that matter. Besides, he suggested that this investigation would clearly show that Donald Trump never really won the 2016 election at all.
Former President accuses the present one of being an illegitimate one
So, in Jimmy Carter’s own words at The Carter Centre,
“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.”
Further when asked whether he believes Trump is an illegitimate President or not; Jimmy Carter paused and later chose an answer that burst the audience into laughter-
“Based on what I just said, which I can’t retract…”
Jimmy Carter has been the only living President who was anywhere near sympathetic to Trump. Though he crticised some of his policies, he never once gave the idea that he was not willing to help. But these statements are a complete turn from his previous comments. It’s unclear what made such a drastic turn of events.
Now that a suggestion has been put forward by the former President, the question is will such an investigation ever see the light of the day? Scroll and share your views in the comments section.
