President Donald Trump fired back at former president Jimmy Carter Saturday after Carter called Trump an illegitimate president because of Russian interference.
Trump went on to mock Carter as a “nice man” who was “trashed by his own party.”
“Russia, Russia, Russia,” Trump said during a news conference at the G20 summit Saturday, according to the Washington Post. “He’s a Democrat and that’s a typical talking point.”
Trump piled on further, saying that Carter’s efforts to deal with Iran when 52 Americans were held hostage for 444 days were a “disaster.”
“They tied him up in knots,” Trump said. “That’s probably why Ronald Reagan became president.”
