Jimmy Carter Thinks Trump Is An Illegitimate President
NEW: Former president Jimmy Carter says a full investigation “would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016….He was put into office because the Russians interfered.” Does that mean he’s an illegitimate president? “Based on what I said, which I can’t retract.” pic.twitter.com/Y3UFUBIIDy

Former President Jimmy Carter: If fully investigated, it 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.

These are strongest words spoken by any former president about the 2016 election. Former president Carter has spent decades working around the world monitoring elections. President Carter knows what a crooked election looks like when he sees it.
Carter said it, and he didn’t water it down or take it back. Trump was put into office through Russian election interference and is not a legitimate president. It isn’t an accident that Carter would make this statement on the same day that Trump was seen joking around with Putin about Russia interfering in the 2020 election.
Jimmy Carter said what most Americans believe. Donald Trump was not legitimately elected, and the concern of many voters is that he is going to try to get illegitimately elected to another term in 2020.
