Former US President Jimmy Carter holds several records
The Carter Center issued an official statement. Sad.
“After a series of brief hospitalizations, former US President Jimmy Carter decided today to spend the remainder of his time at home with his family and receive palliative care rather than further medical intervention. He has the full support of his family and medical staff. The Carter family requests privacy during this time and is grateful for the care shown by their many supporters.”
Hospice care is provided to patients who have less than six months to live.
In 2015, the former president was diagnosed with melanoma, a malignant skin tumor. He metastasized to the liver and brain. Four months after the operation, Jimmy Carter announced that he was cured of cancer. But melanoma is complicated. She is back…
Democrat Carter was the owner of the White House between 1977 and 1981. In the next election, he lost to Republican Ronald Reagan.
On June 18, 1979, in the Austrian capital, Vienna, the heads of the two great nuclear powers, the Soviet Union and the United States, Leonid Brezhnev and Jimmy Carter, signed the important Strategic Offensive Weapons Limitation Treaty. (SALT-2). Then the American president unexpectedly kissed the Soviet leader. This kiss went down in history.
Unfortunately, after the entry of Soviet troops into Afghanistan, relations between the USSR and the USA deteriorated sharply. The states under Carter even boycotted the Summer Olympics in Moscow.
Carter holds several records.
In 2002 he received the Nobel Peace Prize. He is the only President of the United States to receive this award after resigning from a high government position.
Record holder of being in the status of former president of the United States. He left the White House 42 years ago. Former record holder Herbert Hoover lived after his retirement for 31 years.
On March 22, 2019, he became the longest-serving president in the history of the United States, surpassing George W. Bush, who lived 94 years 171 days.
On October 1, 2019, having celebrated his 95th birthday, he became the first and only of all US Presidents to reach that age. Jimmy Carter is now 98 years old. Whether he’ll live to see his 99th birthday in the fall is a big question.
