I have been concerned at some of the things he’s decided. I think his last choice for national security adviser was very ill-advised. I think John Bolton has been the worst mistake he’s made. He has advocated preemptive war against North Korea, Iraq and even Iran.

At 93 years of age, Carter is still going strong — writing, speaking and frequently lending a hand at Habitat for Humanity.
And even offering to help Trump navigate North Korea and keep it away from Bolton’s paws. www.cbsnews.com/…
