READ: Jimmy Carter Says Donald Trump Is a ‘Disaster In Human Rights and Taking Care of People and Treating People Equal’

Whoah.

Former President Jimmy Carter isn’t known to jump to public criticism. The retired peanut farmer has mostly focused on working with Habitat for Humanity and enjoying retirement.

However, in a recent interview with The Washington Post, Carter didn’t mince words when discussing the current president:

I think he’s a disaster In human rights and taking care of people and treating people equal.

His wife, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, concurred:

 The worst is that he is not telling the truth, and that just hurts everything.

The Post article highlighted the differences in lifestyle between the two presidents, noting the stark contrast of Carter’s modest ranch to Donald Trump’s infamous gold-plated properties which, to many, invoke King Midas more than a president. Carter alluded to this as well when discussing the current emphasis on wealth overtaking American culture, lamenting that “Money is now preeminent. I mean, it’s just gone to hell now.”

Many on Twitter noted Carter’s usual hesitation to criticize so publicly.

They also noted Carter’s reputation for decency as a whole–another difference between him and the current president.

While Carter’s statements in The Washington Post represent his most direct criticisms of the president, they’re not his first.
