Trump sent the well wishes on Twitter Monday afternoon - hours after Carter fell at his Plains, Georgia, home and had to have the surgery.

President Jimmy Carter fell at his Plains, Georgia home Monday morning while preparing for a turkey hunt, according to a release from The Carter Center.

Carter, a Democrat who served as Georgia's governor beginning in 1971, was elected president in November 1976, narrowly defeating Republican incumbent Gerald R. Ford, the former congressman who served out the end of Richard Nixon's term. "I've had thousands of friends, I've had an exciting, adventurous and gratifying existence". The former president was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for co-founding the Carter Center, an Atlanta-based organization to promote and expand human rights.

Since leaving the White House, Mr Carter has remained active, carrying out humanitarian work with his Carter Center in recent years. He continues to hold Sunday School in Georgia, and visits Habitat for Humanity projects across the country.

The White House said last month that Carter and President Donald Trump spoke by phone for the first time in a conversation the White House said was focused on trade talks with China.
