(National Sentinel) 39: Former President Jimmy Carter made some unexpected statements regarding the current president, his predecessor, his opponent and the NFL in a recent interview with far-Left New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd.
In discussing his role in security a deal with the North Koreans in 1994 to end their nuclear weapons program — which they cheated on just a few years later — the 39th president said he would definitely go back to Pyongyang today to try to secure a new deal, and peace, with leader Kim Jong-un if President Donald J. Trump asked him to go.
“I would go, yes,” he said.
As for Trump himself, Carter says the media has ravaged him more than any other president in the 93-year-old’s lifetime.
“I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about. I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation,” he said.
Asked if he supported Hillary Clinton last year, Carter responded that he and his wife, Rosalynn, supported her Democratic opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Okay, but did the Russian ‘steal the election’ for Trump, Dowd asked leadingly.
“Rosie and I have a difference of opinion on that,” Carter said. “I don’t think there’s any evidence that what the Russians did changed enough votes, or any votes.”
Carter also criticized President Barack Obama.
“He made some very wonderful statements, in my opinion, when he first got in office, and then he reneged on that,” Carter said of Obama’s Middle East policies.
The Left-wing columnist then attempted to draw comparisons between the Carter Center and the Clinton Foundation, but the former president wasn’t having any of that.
“Rosie and I put money in the Carter Center. We never take any out,” he said, implying the Clinton Foundation does.
What about the NFL player protests?
“I think they ought to find a different way to object, to demonstrate. I would rather see all the players stand during the American anthem,” Carter, a former U.S. Navy officer, responded.
