President Trump responded Saturday to criticism from former president Jimmy Carter by calling him a “terrible president” and asserted that Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) got “too much credit” for her debate performance following two days of intensive meetings with foreign leaders here.
Trump mocked Carter — who a day earlier suggested his presidency was illegitimate because of Russian interference in the 2016 election — as a “nice man” who was “trashed by his own party.”
“Russia, Russia, Russia,” Trump said in an exasperated tone during a news conference at the end of the Group of 20 summit. “He’s a Democrat and that’s a typical talking point.”
The irony of this simple fuck calling any of his predecessors a “terrible president” is mind-numbing.
However, we knew that after Carter called him an illegitimate president that he would never be able to let that go.
Speaking of terrible presidents this idiot is now suggesting that despite the fact that Kim Jong Un has undermined denuclearization talks that he would still like to have a photo op with him.
After some very important meetings, including my meeting with President Xi of China, I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon). While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!

During a brief photo-op with reporters Saturday, Trump said he “put out a feeler” to Kim for a potential handshake on the DMZ in order to advance their warm friendship.
“All I did was put out a feeler if he’d like to meet,” Trump told reporters in Japan, where he is meeting with leaders on the sidelines of the G20. “He sent me a very beautiful birthday card.”
Trump told reporters later Saturday that Kim was “very receptive to meeting.”
“I can’t tell you exactly but they did respond very favorably,” Trump said of the possibility of a meeting.
Trump also told reporters he would feel “very comfortable” stepping foot in North Korea when he visits the DMZ Sunday.
“Sure I would,” Trump said when asked whether he would step foot into the country.
“I feel very comfortable doing that. I would have no problem,” Trump said in Osaka.
It should be noted that no sitting president has crossed the border into North Korea and that doing so would be a huge coup for Kim Jong Un and signal to his terrified people that he was more powerful than the leader of the free world.
Every other president understood that, but not Donald Trump.
All he knows is that somebody working for the North Korean dictator wrote him a “beautiful birthday card.”
