Carter Would Pick Trump over Cruz
For what it’s worth, former President Jimmy Carter said on Wednesday that he would pick Donald Trump over Ted Cruz.
“I think I would choose Trump, which may surprise some of you,” he said.
“The reason is, Trump has proven already he’s completely malleable,” Carter said. “I don’t think he has any fixed (positions) 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.”
The Hill reports:
Carter added that he had a “feeling” that Trump’s chances for the presidency would “fade away.”
“When people actually get ready to put on a ballot, ‘This is the person I want to lead me for the next four or eight years, I think they’ll have a little different opinion,’” Carter said.
Ultimately, he said he will support whoever is the Democratic nominee, noting he thinks Hillary Clinton “will still prevail” despite rival Bernie Sanders’s “remarkable showing, particularly among young people.”
