Trump Speaks With Jimmy Carter About China Trade

President Donald Trump spoke over the weekend with former President Jimmy Carter about his China policies and “numerous other topics.”

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley says Trump reached out to Carter on Saturday after the former president wrote him “a beautiful letter” about ongoing trade negotiations between the U.S. and China.

Trump’s norm-breaking presidency has strained relations among the traditionally genial club of former presidents, and he has publicly feuded with the families of the other three former living American leaders. He was not asked to speak at the funeral last year for former President George H.W. Bush.

Gidley says Trump “has always liked” Carter and his wife Rosalynn, and that Trump “extended his best wishes to them on behalf of the American people.”



  1. As long as you say nice things about the dear leader and write beautiful letters to him he will like you. It makes no difference if you are Kim, Carter or Netanyahu. Praise the insatiable ego and he will repay you in kind.
