KERRY: Trump Should Resign Because He Doesn’t Take Presidency Seriously

(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Former Secretary of State John Kerry told a consortium of globalist elites gathered in Davos, Switzerland, that President Donald Trump should step down because he can’t take the job seriously.

At the World Economic Forum, Kerry sniped that if he could say one thing to Trump, it would be: “Resign.”

“I can’t play that—I just—I would,” Kerry said, according to CNBC. “But I know that, see, because he doesn’t take any of this seriously. He doesn’t have the ability to have that kind of conversation.”

The longtime Massachusetts senator referenced the ongoing partial government shutdown and said the reason the government isn’t open is because Trump can’t sit down with party leaders and negotiate.


Kerry found out the hard way that Trump viewed negotiating differently when the president dispatched with his crowning achievement as secretary of State: an Iran nuclear treaty that bribed the rogue caliphate billions in U.S. dollars and provided for little in the way of verification or enforcement.

Kerry, who lost his 2004 White House bid to George W. Bush, has regularly criticized the Trump administration as he toys with the notion of a potential 2020 run against the current president.

“There’s no secret about how chaotic this is, and increasingly, there is no secret about how corrupt it is,” he told MSNBC.

“And it’s obviously not just corrupt on a question of criminality,” he added. “It’s corrupt in terms of keeping faith with American principles, keeping faith with the direction of the country, the way we need to go and the way we need to govern ourselves.”

After the resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Kerry called Trump a “pull-out, walk-away presidency,” and said the president’s decision to bring U.S. troops home from Syria was a “moment of shame.”

The Vietnam veteran first made a name for himself by testifying to Congress about the atrocities of war he claimed to have witnessed.

However, many—including those he served with—have called into question his version of the facts, for which he received multiple Purple Hearts.

Trump was scheduled to travel to Davos for the summit, where he surprisingly received rock-star treatment last year, but canceled due to the ongoing shutdown.

Trump took to Twitter to scorch the media for its hypocritical coverage of his decision to stay in Washington, D.C.
