John Kerry doesn’t rule out potential 2020 run – Trump mocks

In an interview with CBS News, former Senator and Secretary of State John Kerry, was asked whether he was planning on running for President in 2020. Kerry declined to answer, saying “no” as to if he had made a decision or not.

“I’m really not thinking about it,” Kerry said. “Talking about 2020 right now is a total distraction and waste of time. What we need to do is focus on 2018.”

“I think that’s the most important work we can do right now, is trying to elect people on a national basis and restore the leadership that the country needs,”

Kerry is planning on hitting the campaign trail for other Democrats ahead of the November elections.

President Trump in response to the potential of Kerry running in 2020, took to Twitter lambasting him. Trump stated, “I see that John Kerry, the father of the now terminated Iran deal, is thinking of running for President. I should only be so lucky – although the field that is currently assembling looks really good – FOR ME!”

Kerry would join handful of others that are planning on running, that group is currently perceived as potentially weak, the group includes: Senators Kamala D. Harris (Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), former vice president Joe Biden, Starbucks executive chairman Howard Schultz, and Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing Stormy Daniels.
