Former President Jimmy Carter threw some shade at President Barack Obama, saying his successes on the world stage have “been minimal” throughout his presidency at the Aspen Institute last week.
Carter made the claim about Obama’s accomplishment’s abroad, adding further there aren’t many nations where the U.S. has “a better relationship” since he took over. The 39th president also said John Kerry has been “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had.”
“I think [John Kerry’s] one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had. I think he’s outstanding.”
“On the world stage, I think they have been minimal,” Carter said when asked about Obama’s accomplishments abroad. “I think he has done some good things domestically, like the health programs and so forth. But on the world stage, just to be objective about it as I can, I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than we did when he took over.”
“If you look at Russia, if you look at England, if you look at China, if you look at Egypt and so forth. I’m not saying it’s his fault, but we have not improved our relationship with individual countries and I would say that the United States’s influence and prestige and respect in the world is probably lower than it was six or seven years ago,” Carter said.
Carter’s most recent foreign-policy criticism is not the first time when the former president has insulted President Obama. (RELATED: EPIC FAIL: Now JIMMY CARTER Is Calling Obama An Incompetent Loser)
