Former President Jimmy Carter thinks the United States is no longer a democracy, calling the nation an 'oligarchy' during an interview with Oprah Winfrey. The comment came from a trailer for an upcoming episode of the talkshow host's SuperSoul Sunday, which will have its season premiere this Sunday.

'We've become now an oligarchy instead of a democracy. And I think that's been the worst damage to the basic moral and ethical standards of the American political system that I've ever seen in my life,' the 90-year-old former president told Winfrey.
