Jimmy Carter: Four More Years of Trump 'Would Be a Disaster'
Former president worries about Trump being re-elected in 2020
Former President Jimmy Carter believes that if President Donald Trump wins in 2020 would be a “disaster” for the United States.
Additionally, the former first lady, Rosalynn Carter, said the Presdient “encourages racism.”
Carter's scathing criticism of Trump came during an event at the Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
The former president did not say who he would be voting for in the upcoming Democratic presidential primary but revealed he wants a candidate who has the ability to beat Trump, according to The Atlanta-Journal Constitution.
“I don’t know who I will vote for, but I will vote for one of them,” Carter said.
“I voted for [Vermont Sen.] Bernie [Sanders] the last time.”
“But one of the major factors I have in my mind is who can beat Trump,” he continued.
“Because I think it would be a disaster to have four more years of Trump.”
Carter's wife, Rosalynn, blamed Trump for the current racial climate in the country.
“I am so disturbed about white power,” she said.
“[Trump] says he is not a racist and maybe he is not. But some of the things he says encourages racism.”
Carter also touched on he subject of age in the presidency.
“You know, if I were just 80 years old, if I was 15 years younger, I don’t believe I could undertake the duties that I experienced when I was president,” Carter said.

“For one thing, you had to be very flexible with your mind,” he added.
“You had to be able to go from one subject to another and concentrate on each one adequately and then put them all together in a comprehensive way.”
In June, Carter claimed if a 'thorough investigation' were conducted, it would find Trump lost the 2016 election due to 'outside interference.'
Speaking during a Carter Center conference on Human Rights Carter, the former presdient said an investigation “would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016.”
“He lost the election, and he was put in office because the Russians interfered on his behalf,” he said.
When Carter was asked if Trump is an illegitimate president, he replied, “[b]ased on what I said, which I can’t retract.”
