John Kerry says he has one word for President Donald Trump: 'Resign'

Former secretary of state and potential 2020 hopeful, John Kerry used his time in the spotlight at Davos for some light Trump bashing by calling for his president to stand down.

During an appearance at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, this week, Kerry called for President Donald Trump's resignation.

Mr. Kerry made the remark when pressed by CNBC reporter Tania Bryer, who asked him a hypothetical question: What his message for Trump would be if he were sitting next to him?

Kerry gave a one-word response, saying: "Resign."

The former U.S. senator said, "He doesn’t take any of this seriously.”

Kerry, who lost his bid for the presidency in 2004, made the comments during a panel at the event where world leaders gather to discuss global policies.

President Trump didn't attend this year's convention, but at the 2018 forum, he told other leaders he will put America first, before their nations, advising them to start putting their own countries first too.

According to Fox News, Trump was scheduled to travel to Davos for the summit but canceled due to the ongoing partial government shutdown.

The president ridiculed the media early Tuesday in a Twitter post acknowledging this year’s absence.

"Last time I went to Davos, the Fake News said I should not go there" he tweeted.

"This year, because of the Shutdown, I decided not to go, and the Fake News said I should be there."

Kerry has been a consistent Trump critic.

After the September release of Bob Woodard’s book “Fear,” which claimed to provide inside knowledge of the Trump White House, Kerry said the alleged details scare him.

Following the resignation of former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis earlier this year, Kerry slammed Trump’s "pull-out, walk-away presidency" and described Trump’s decision to pull out U.S. troops from Syria a "moment of shame."

When the former Democratic presidential nominee was asked if he would consider running again in 2020, Kerry said he hasn't "taken anything off the table."
