Former President Jimmy Carter said that he does not support certain Democrats’ desire to impeach President Trump in an interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox Business Network Tuesday afternoon.

WATCH:

“Mr. President, there are many in your party who are salivating at their prospects in the midterms. Talk of a blue wave.  Many of them are mentioning the “I-word” —  impeachment — if they get control of the House. What do you think of that?” Cavuto asked.

“Not me,” Carter responded.” I don’t talk about impeachment, I think that’s the wrong thing for Democrats to do. And I think they … 2018 elections are just completely unknown now. I’m not actively involved in politics anymore as you know, but I’ll be helping the Democrats the best I can, and I presume you’ll be voting Republican. I don’t know for sure, but you don’t have to tell me. But I think that the American people will make the right choice.”

Back in May, Carter said he would even support a Nobel Peace Prize for President Trump pending the outcome of the president’s continued talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. (RELATED: Jimmy Carter Would Endorse A Nobel Peace Prize For Trump Over North Korea Talks)
