John Kerry: We Are in a ‘Dangerous Place’ Under Trump, 'People Know It'
Former Secretary of State blasts president over Iran
Former Obama administration Secretary of State John Kerry claimed President Donald Trump's leadership is putting America in a “dangerous place” during Monday's broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball."
Kerry was asked if Trump could “bumble” the US into a war with Iran, he replied, “yes, obviously he could I mean he almost did.”
Kerry also claimed the President had "not achieved anything with North Korea.”
"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," he added.
"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," Kerry claimed.
"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 of free world goes to 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.”

Last week, Kerry accused Trump of ruining everything he and former President Barack Obama achieved with the Iran deal.
In a forlorn 1,000 word op-ed for the New York Times, Kerry wrote:
“He put his disdain for anything done by the last administration ahead of his duty to keep the country safe."
Kerry argued that the Iran nuclear deal was 'working' before Trump threw it all away.
"There were no missile attacks on United States facilities. No ships were being detained or sabotaged in the Persian Gulf,” he wrote.
“There were no protesters breaching our embassy in Baghdad. Iraq welcomed our presence, fighting ISIS.”
