Jimmy Carter Reveals Who He’d Choose for President if Forced to Pick Between Trump and Cruz
Former President Jimmy Carter said Wednesday that he would prefer businessman Donald Trump as president over Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
Following a speech at the U.K.’s House of Lords, Carter took questions and was asked by a BBC reporter for his analysis of the 2016 election.
The former president then turned his attention to the race for the Republican nomination. He said he had a “feeling” Trump would ultimately “fade away” — then made an unexpected statement.
If he had to choose between Trump and Cruz, Carter reportedly said, “I think I would choose Trump, which may surprise some of you.”
“The reason is, Trump has proven already he’s completely malleable,” Carter explained, according to the Atlanta-Constitution Journal. “I don’t think he has any fixed [position] he’d go the White House and fight for. On the other hand, Ted Cruz is not malleable. He has far right-wing policies he’d pursue if he became president.”
