Former President Jimmy Carter offered support for President Trump’s decision not to attack Iran after it shot down a U.S. drone.
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.
“I agree with President Trump on his decision not to take military action against Iran,” he said. “I had a lot of problems with Iran when I was in office.”
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.
Here in Plains for Sunday School with President Carter. First person in line got here at 8pm last night and camped out. Arrive after 2:30am? There are several overflow rooms. #gapol pic.twitter.com/sq592vN75g— Emma N. Hurt (@Emma_Hurt) June 23, 2019
