Jimmy Carter is eager to talk with Kim Jong

Jimmy Carter is eager to talk with Kim Jong”

On North Korea, the 93-year-old former leader appeared to offer his services if needed for negotiations. "He's never, so far as I know, been to China".

He voiced concern that the young leader Kim may try pre-emptive action if he thinks Trump would act against him, and added, "I think he's now got advanced nuclear weaponry that can destroy the Korean Peninsula and Japan", as well as outlying territories in the Pacific and maybe even parts of the US mainland.

However, he said that the world's souring view of the United States "precedes Trump", though the current president might have helped contribute to the rise of such sentiments. Particularly to Kim Jong-un.

In fact, there were some illuminating quotes from Carter on issues ranging from Russia--"Carter is also not as bothered as some by Trump's Putin bromance"--to the Clintons to even NFL players kneeling during the national anthem: "I think they ought to find a different way to object, to demonstrate". Carter acknowledged being concerned about the current tension between the two countries and believes that Pyongyang already has advanced nuclear weapons that can destroy U.S. territories.

The former Democrat (1977-1981) said he had spoken to Trump's National Security Adviser, Lt. Gen. HR McMaster, with whom he had a good friendship, but for the time being he declined.

It would not be the first time Carter collaborated with a president or traveled to North Korea in a diplomatic mission.

"I told him that I'm available if you need me", he said.

Donald Trump's America First policy is "the height of American way of thinking that it is best if the U.S.is well-off at the expense of the whole world".
