Donald Trump referenced the “late, great Jimmy Carter” during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday night.

One problem.

Carter is alive and well.


The real estate mogul was comparing the Obama administration to Carter’s presidency, saying, “We’re getting into Jimmy Carter territory. And I never thought I’d see anything like that again. I lived through that time and it was not a good time and we’re pretty close.”

“I think maybe by next month we’ll have surpassed the late, great Jimmy Carter,” Trump added.

The former president’s grandson, James Carter, responded to the “Apprentice” creator’s remarks on Twitter, writing, “I’m pretty sure I would have heard about that.”
