Well according to a report by CBS News on Thursday, March 21, Jimmy Carter will now add another title to his achievements after he was recognised as longest-living USA president.
Along with his newest feat, he was also the first USA president to be born in a hospital.
America's founding president, George Washington, was the youngest former president to die - at 57 years and 67 days - in April 1789, almost three years after he left office.
Carter also has the longest post-presidency in U.S. History, now at 38 years, 60 days.Читайте также: Brazil Ex-President Temer Arrested Amid Corruption Investigation
"We at The Carter Center are grateful for his long life of service that has benefited millions of the world's poorest people", Deanna Congileo, a spokeswoman for the Carter Center said.
After his presidency, Carter was dubbed the "active ex-president", received a Nobel Prize in 2002 and cemented the title with his continued participation in Habitat for Humanity through the Carter Work Project.
As president, he played a major role in the negotiations that led to 1979′s Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty. Ronald Reagan trounced Carter in 1980 with Bush as his vice presidential running mate. Adams, America's second president served from 1797-1801 and was the only president to turn 90 in the nineteenth century. He and his wife have long volunteered with the Georgia-based non-profit Habitat for Humanity, and their efforts significantly raised its profile.
He started the Carter Center in 1982, which works to prevent and resolve worldwide conflicts, improve health and freedom and democracy.
He is also the author of numerous books, with his 32nd, Faith: A Journey for All, released in 2018.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
