Jimmy Carter: ‘Proud’ of Obama for Cuba


On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” former President Jimmy Carter offered his approval on President Barack Obama’s actions toward Cuba.

“This is the kind of thing that has been long overdue, and I’m very proud and grateful that President Obama has shown such wisdom and also I think political courage in taking these long overdue steps,” Carter said.

“The best way to bring democracy and freedom to Cuba … is to have full opportunity for Americans to go there, trade, to invest,” he added. “I think this will open up the Cuban people to the realization that they need to move towards more freedom and more democracy.”
