Jimmy Carter Tears Trump’s America To Shreds, Claims It’s ‘An Oligarchy With Unlimited Political Bribery’
The oldest living U.S. president Jimmy Carter shamed Donald Trump’s America during an interview with radio host Thom Hartmann, claiming that it has turned into an oligarchy with “unlimited political bribery.”
“Our Supreme Court has now said, ‘unlimited money in politics.’ It seems like a violation of the principles of democracy. What are our thoughts on that?” Hartmann asked.
“It violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system,” Carter replied.”Now it’s just an oligarchy, with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or to elect the president. And the same thing applies to governors and U.S. senators and congress members.”
“So now we’ve just seen a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect and sometimes get favors for themselves after the election’s over,” he lectured. “The incumbents, Democrats and Republicans, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves.”
“Somebody’s who’s already in Congress has a lot more to sell to an avid contributor than somebody who’s just a challenger,” Carter warned.
