Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Pres. Jimmy Carter hopes to push disease eradication with Trump administration
“…During a press conference Wednesday at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum, Carter said disease eradication programs, like the ones the Carter Center helps lead, depend on money from government agencies, such as USAID, and from other countries and private donors. Carter said he uses his influence to encourage governments and donors across the world to stay involved, including the U.S. ‘Of course, [disease eradication efforts] are dependent on USAID, and I’ll be meeting with President-elect Trump and also with his new secretary of state, who is in charge of USAID, just to let them know what we are doing,’ Carter said…” (Quinn, 1/11).
