(WXIA) -- In a speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, Donald Trump took jabs at Democrats over policy, took on President Barack Obama, and declared former president Jimmy Carter dead.

Trump said the Republican Party should be cautious when it comes to dealing with undocumented immigrants. He said those potential new voters would not vote for the GOP in any event.

He compared Obama's performance thus far on the handling of the Ukranian crisis to that of Carter, insisting that Russian President Vladimir Putin was "toying with" Obama and the United States.

"We're getting into Jimmy Carter territory, and I never thought I'd see anything like that again," Trump said, referring to Obama. "I lived through that time, and it was not a good time, and we're pretty close. I think maybe by next month, we will have surpassed the late, great Jimmy Carter."

Carter is still alive and kicking at the age of 89. He remains active with Habitat for Humanity and with The Carter Center.
