Jimmy Carter, the former U.S. president, has a few words of advice for President Donald Trump on Inauguration Day.

Carter attended Trump’s ceremony.

TMZ interviewed the 39th president at the Reagan National Airport, where Carter gave a short answer. The reporter asked him on how to avoid being a “one-term president” like Carter.

He responded with, “Oh, just do a good job and tell the truth.”

Regarding what former President Barack Obama can do now, he told the reporter: “He can come down to the Carter Center. We’d be glad to have him.” The Carter Center “seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health,” according to Independent Journal Review.

Carter served only one term, leaving office in 1981. He went on to become a humanitarian in the decades that followed.
