On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” former Obama administration Secretary of State John Kerry said America was in a “dangerous place” under the leadership of President Donald Trump.
When asked if Trump could “bumble” us into a war with Iran, Kerry said, “Yes, obviously he could. I mean he almost did.”
He continued, “He has obviously not achieved anything with North Korea.”
He added, “He pulled us out of the Paris Agreement. Everybody in the world knows that the evidence of what is happening in terms of climate change facts on the ground is growing and growing and growing with extraordinary danger to the world. Americans are already dying from this in fires, in floods, in storms, in mudslides. And the president is sitting there saying this is a Chinese hoax. So we’re in a very dangerous place. Nuclear arms agreements have been chucked away.”
“The INF agreement, now START treaty, is also at risk,” Kerry continued. “When you start running the list. And what is worse, our president, the president of the United States of America, the leader of the free world goes to a meeting of NATO in England and the leaders of the rest of the world are laughing at him, so much so that he picks up his marbles like a kid in a schoolyard and goes home and then starts to just tweet in solitude. We are in a dangerous place, and I think people know it.”
