Former President Carter visits White House

  • Follow Latest News

WASHINGTON - Former President Jimmy Carter has dropped by the White House to greet President Barack Obama and discuss international affairs with the president's national security adviser.

National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer said Carter and national security adviser Tom Donilon discussed several foreign policy issues Tuesday.

Rising tensions on the Korean peninsula likely were on the agenda because of Carter's expertise with the region, and his recent visit to North Korea where he helped secure the release of an American prisoner.

The U.S. is participating in military exercises with South Korea and planning talks with other Asian allies after a North Korean artillery attack that killed four South Koreans.

I can't believe you guys trying to feed us this story.

The real reason Carter was there is he was requested to return the trophy that he got when he left office... the one that said "Worse President Ever". That trophy has to be re-awarded.
