Now ALL living ex-presidents say they didn't tell Trump they regretted not building a wall with Mexico as Jimmy Carter joins Obama, Clinton and Bush to deny claim

Trump has not had much interaction with his fellow presidents; he's seen here with Melania, Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Jimmy and Rosslyn Carter, and George W. Bush at the late President George H.W. Bush's funeral

  • Jimmy Carter is the latest former president to deny he told President Trump he regretted not building a border wall during his time in the White House
  • Trump called a former president told him they regretted not building a wall 
  • 'Some of them have told me that we should have done it,' he said last week
  • But Carter joined Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush in saying it was not him 

All four living former presidents said they didn't tell President Donald Trump they regretted not building a wall on the U.S. Mexico border.
Spokespersons for Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter confirmed to The Washington Post that none of them said those words to Trump.
The president made the claim on Friday as he defended his decision to dig and hold fast for $5.6 billion to fund his border wall as the government shutdown continued.

George W. Bush

Barack Obama and George W. Bush have also denied it was them who spoke to Trump

'This should have been done by all of the presidents that preceded me,' Trump said during remarks in the Rose Garden. 'And they all know it. Some of them have told me that we should have done it.' 

But none of the past living presidents said it was them.

On Monday, Carter became the latest to deny it, joining his former fellow past presidents.  

'I have not discussed the border wall with President Trump, and do not support him on the issue,' Carter said in the statement issued through his Carter Center.

Eric Shultz, a spokesman for former president Barack Obama, pointed The Post to past remarks in which Obama spoke critically about the wall.

'Suggesting that we can build an endless wall along our borders, and blame our challenges on immigrants - that doesn't just run counter to our history as the world's melting pot; it contradicts the evidence that our growth and our innovation and our dynamism has always been spurred by our ability to attract strivers from every corner of the globe,' Obama said at Rutgers University in 2016. 'That's how we became America. Why would we want to stop it now?' 

Bush spokesman Freddy Ford told Politico the former president had not discussed the matter with Trump.

A spokesperson for Clinton said he hadn't discussed with Trump either. 

Clinton spokesman Angel Ureña said: 'He did not. In fact, they've not talked since the inauguration.'

Trump has not had much interaction with his fellow presidents; he's seen here with Melania, Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Jimmy and Rosslyn Carter, and George W. Bush at the late President George H.W. Bush's funeral

Trump has had little past interaction with his fellow members of the world's most exclusive club.

He attended former President George H.W. Bush's funeral with them but the atmosphere between the first couples was decidedly chilly. 

Only the Obamas greeted Trump. Hillary Clinton, who lost to him in the 2016 presidential election, pointedly ignored him. 

Trump also has a long record of exaggerations. The Post's fact checker noted he has made 7,600 false or misleading statements since he became president.

Talks between White House and Dems to end shutdown lead nowhere
