According to a leaked account of a secret meeting John Kerry had with a Palestinian operative, the former presidential candidate is thinking about throwing in his hat to run against Donald Trump in the 2020 election for the White House.
The Jerusalem Post reported he hinted about this to a close associate of Palestinian boss Mahmoud Abbas during the meeting, suggesting it was an act of “resistance” to Trump.
Leaked intel on the meeting suggests Kerry told Abbas’ aide, Hussein Agha, that Palestinians should “hold on and be strong” because Trump won’t last another 4 years. Kerry allegedly added Abbas needed to “stay strong in his spirit and play for time, that he will not break and will not yield to President Trump’s demands.”
“Maybe it is time for the Palestinians to define their peace principles and present a positive plan,” Kerry said.
Kerry ran for president in 2004 and lost to George W. Bush. He went on to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State for Obama, once she left that position.
In the meeting Kerry disclosed to Agha that people in the Department of State and the U.S. intelligence community do not like President Trump; and encouraged Abbas to start launching personal attack against Trump to get him enraged, hoping to force the president into an error or two.
Via Breitbart: Kerry’s alleged assurances to the Palestinian strongman that the U.S. would soon be able to acquiesce to Palestinian Authority demands are reminiscent of the time then-President Barack Obama was heard on an open mic assuring Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that after he was safely re-elected, he would be better able to bow to Vladimir Putin’s demands.
The former Massachusetts senator’s secret visit aimed at undermining U.S. foreign policy in favor of an enemy is also reminiscent of another Massachusetts senator’s secret efforts to aid an enemy. In 1983, Sen. Ted Kennedy sent overtures to the Soviet Union promising his help in undermining the policies of President Ronald Reagan if only the USSR would, in return, help him launch a successful bid to beat back Reagan’s re-election and place Kennedy in the White House.
