Wednesday on MSNBC’s The Last Word, John Kerry declared that President Trump “doesn’t stop to understand” how to negotiate with Iran or “an awful lot of other things that are important to the presidency.”
“I will be amazed if this Iranian regime will negotiate with Donald Trump,” Barack Obama‘s former Secretary of State said. “They found out he’s not trustworthy. They’ve seen his lies as we have seen his lies, and that is not the basis on which to invite people to a table. Nor is it possible to squeeze and force them to that table.
“If we learned anything in our negotiation with Iran, it’s they pride themselves in a more than 5,000-year history as a nation-state, as a culture, as a presence. And I think this president just doesn’t stop to understand those kinds of things, let alone an awful lot of other things that are important to the presidency…”
What Kerry doesn’t stop to understand is that he is confusing “negotiation” with “appeasement.” And it speaks volumes about him and Obama that he views Trump to be untrustworthy but not Iran.
