USA has become more an 'oligarchy than a democracy': Jimmy Carter

Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn made a public appearance Tuesday night to discuss their plans for peace and health initiatives around the world.

Carter also addressed the current situation with North Korea. "He said if he would send his "top person to Pyongyang immediately" if he were in office".

"Until we're willing to talk to them and treat them with respect as human beings, which they are, then I don't think we'll make any progress", the former president said.

Trump warned of "fire and fury" if North Korea continues to threaten the U.S.

More than eight months into his presidency, Trump has yet to make a clear stance on the issue and his statements have always been tainted with a degree of bias towards Israel.

Carter criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a Trump ally, for having "no intention at all of having a two-state solution".
