Donald Trump Slams John Kerry Over Efforts On Iran Deal
WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump is attacking John Kerry after reports that the former secretary of state has been quietly promoting the Iran nuclear deal. Trump said on Twitter on Monday: “The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal. He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!”
The Boston Globe reported Friday that Kerry, the lead negotiator on the deal for the Obama administration, had been privately meeting with foreign officials to strategize on how to keep the US in the deal. Trump has been highly critical of the pact and has threatened to exit on May 12. Last week at an event in Dallas, Trump mocked Kerry over a bicycle accident he had three years ago.
