Former President Donald Trump said comparing former President Jimmy Carter’s presidency to the Biden administration is unfair.
“I see that everybody is comparing Joe Biden to Jimmy Carter. It would seem to me that is very unfair to Jimmy Carter. Jimmy mishandled crisis after crisis, but Biden has CREATED crisis after crisis,” Trump wrote in a statement Wednesday.
Trump then listed off all of Biden’s self-inflicted crises.
“First there was the Biden Border Crisis (that he refuses to call a Crisis), then the Biden Economic Crisis, then the Biden Israel Crisis, and now the Biden Gas Crisis,” Trump wrote. “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!
Trump isn’t the only one to notice the similarities between the two Democratic presidencies.
“Joe Biden is the new Jimmy Carter: -Stagflation -Higher taxes -And rising gas prices 2021 meet 1979,” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan tweeted on Tuesday.

“President Biden has been in office for nearly four months and is already having his Jimmy Carter moment. This is crushing for our country and U.S. leadership around the globe,” said Rep. Mike Waltz in a statement. “As Jimmy Carter put it best, there is ‘a crisis of confidence’ and President Biden is lost in the wilderness.”

Twitter used Trump Jr.’s tweets to spin the topic and claim that Carter’s presidency was marked with successes such as the former Democrat president’s Nobel Peace Prize.
