“Trump Didn’t Win The Election, The Russians Put Him In Office” – Jimmy Carter Breaks Silence
Ex-US President Jimmy Carter suggested today that a full investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election would show that Donald Trump didn’t win the presidency.
“There’s no doubt that the Russians did interfere in the election. And I think the interference, although not yet quantified, if fully investigated would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016. He lost the election and he was put into office because the Russians interfered on his behalf,” Carter said at the Carter Center’s retreat in Leesburg, Virginia.
Asked if he believes Trump is an illegitimate president, Carter paused for a moment.
“Based on what I just said, which I can’t retract,” Carter said to audience laughter.
