Former Secretary of State John Kerry hinted at a potential second run for the White House this week; saying he was “thinking about” another bid for the Oval Office against President Trump in 2020.
The 2004 Democratic candidate was speaking at Harvard University Tuesday when he was pressed to comment on whether he may seek the party’s nomination in the coming months.
“I’m thinking about how the hell to get out from under that question fast,” Kerry responded. “I’m not taking anything off the table… I haven’t been running around to the most obvious states, laying any groundwork or doing anything.”
“Am I going to think about it? Yeah, I’m going to think about it,” he added.

KERRY COLLUSION: Nikki Haley Slams John Kerry’s ‘ANTI-AMERICAN’ Meetings with Tehran
US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley unloaded on former Secretary of State John Kerry Wednesday; blasting the ex-diplomat for his continued meetings with Iranian officials since leaving office.
Haley was speaking with Fox News when she was asked to comment on Kerry’s recent admission he had met at least “three or four times” with his Iranian counterparts in recent months.
“What Secretary Kerry did was not only disrespectful, it was hurtful to America,” Haley said. “When we are sitting there trying to get Iran to come to the table in a way that they understand that the ballistic missile testing has to stop, the support of terrorism has to stop, they have to quit selling arms to the Houthis–to have another American go in and say, ‘Don’t worry about it,’ that absolutely is anti-American.”
KERRY COLLUSION: Sen. Rubio Calls for DOJ PROBE into Kerry’s ‘ILLEGAL’ Iran Meetings
Sen. Marco Rubio fired-back at former Secretary of State John Kerry Tuesday; blasting the senior Obama official and requesting a thorough investigation into whether he broke the law by engaging in “Shadow Diplomacy” with Iranian officials.
Rubio sent a scathing letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week asking for an official investigation into Kerry’s dealings since leaving office; saying the former diplomat may have violated the Logan Act or the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
The American people “deserve to know that U.S. laws are enforced regardless of any individual’s past position,” writes Rubio.
Last week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasted Kerry’s “unseemly” actions, saying his high-level meetings are without “precedent” in American history.
“You can’t find precedent for this in U.S. history, and Secretary Kerry ought not to engage in that kind of behavior,” said Pompeo.
