Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday likened President Biden to one-term Democratic President Jimmy Carter, whose popularity plunged due to a gas crisis and conflict in the Middle East with Iran.
Trump, who says he may seek a rematch against Biden in 2024, said, “I see that everybody is comparing Joe Biden to Jimmy Carter. It would seem to me that is very unfair to Jimmy Carter.”
Trump blamed Biden for the crippling hack of the Colonial pipeline, which is causing gas stations across the Southeast to run dry, and for renewed clashes between Israel and Palestinians.
“Jimmy mishandled crisis after crisis, but Biden has CREATED crisis after crisis,” Trump wrote.
Trump added: “Joe Biden has had the worst start of any president in United States history, and someday, they will compare future disasters to the Biden Administration —but no, Jimmy was better!”
