39th President Jimmy Carter does not believe that President Trump truly won the election in 2016. Carter stated as much during a Friday event at the Virginia-based Carter Center.
Carter’s remarks mirror the assertions of many critics who dislike the president and believe that Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
A Closer Look at Carter’s Statements about Trump
Over the course of Donald Trump’s presidency, various critics have raised questions about the legitimacy of his 2016 victory. Despite a nearly two-year-long investigation, certain Americans still believe that the president’s ascension to the White House is the result of Russian interference.
This is something which Trump has denied on multiple occasions. Furthermore, Mueller’s probe failed to prove the occurrence of collusion; the investigation did not even result in the president facing a criminal charge. Weeks later, Mueller came out and admitted that he and his team did not feel comfortable enough to charge Trump with a crime.
