Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtonexaminer.com: “Jimmy Carter praises Trump during Sunday school lesson”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Carter, 94, offered the rare praise for Trump on Sunday while addressing an audience of about 500 at his home church, Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia. Carter's one term as president was marked by the Iran hostage crisis.

The comments came two days after Trump called off retaliatory airstrikes against Iran for shooting down a U.S. drone. Trump said the reason he decided to halt the military action was because the estimated 150 fatalities was not proportional to the loss of one unmanned drone.

Carter, a Navy veteran, is famously dovish and told those in church Sunday that he doesn’t think most recent wars have been justified.
