Jimmy Carter says he’s concerned that the Trump administration’s approach to foreign policy will hasten declining support for human rights in other countries.

The former U.S president spoke with The Associated Press on Tuesday as dozens of human rights activists gathered at The Carter Center in Atlanta to discuss the rise of populist and authoritarian leaders around the globe.

Carter specifically cited a portion of President Donald Trump’s inaugural address promising that the U.S. would not “impose our way of life” but instead act as an example.

Carter says he worries that approach to foreign policy will lower the United States’ commitment to peace and human rights.

Carter, 92, said he hopes this week’s event will spread the word of activists’ experiences and influence global leaders’ approach to human rights.
