President Donald Trump found sympathy from an unexpected source in the pages on The New York Times Sunday.
Former President Jimmy Carter told TheNYT’s Maureen Dowd at his home in Plains, Ga., that the press treats Trump worse than any chief executive in living memory.
“I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about,” Carter said. “I think they feel free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation.”
Carter is friendly with National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, and praised Trump’s diplomatic initiatives in the Middle East, he revealed in the interview. The indefatigable 93-year old has offered to serve the administration as a back channel envoy, communicating on Trump’s behalf with China and North Korea.
