President Jimmy Carter called Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton “quite unpopular.”
The quote from the former President of the United States of America came on Monday during a session with The Associated Press.
President Carter clarified that Hillary Clinton is a much more qualified candidate and that he will undoubtedly vote for her during the November general election.
“It’s been an exciting and unprecedented kind of campaign this year, and unfortunately, the way it’s turned out, both choices in the major parties are quite unpopular,” said Carter. “But I don’t have any doubt that one of the candidates is better qualified than the other.”
“Everybody knows that I’m a Democrat, and I’ll be voting Democratic,” claimed Carter at a Habitat for Humanity construction project site in Memphis, TN.
Carter does not often lend his voice to political topics as he tends to work with both sides of the aisle and many religious groups through his volunteer work.
Carter, 90, a world renowned voice for Habitat for Humanity, has recently been battling cancer, but is now back to his humanitarian work with Habitats for Humanity.
In August, 2015, Carter announced that he had been diagnosed with a melanoma. Reports were confirmed that the melanoma had spread to his brain.
In March, Carter announced that he was no longer undergoing cancer treatment.
“Now I feel pretty certain about my cure and the cancer being in remission, but the doctors are still keeping an eye on me,” remarked Carter.
