Trump takes another shot at John Kerry for meetings with Iranian officials

President Trump on Thursday night took fresh aim at former secretary of state John F. Kerry, accusing him of engaging in “illegal” meetings with Iranian officials.

In a radio interview this week to promote a new book, Kerry said he had met with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif “three or four times” since leaving office and that their discussions included the nuclear deal that Trump has since scrapped.

Kerry said such meetings are appropriate, later explaining during a television interview on Fox News that “every secretary of state, former secretary of state continues to meet with foreign leaders, goes to security conferences, goes around the world.”

In a Thursday night tweet, Trump took a different view, echoing criticism from conservative pundits from recent days.

“John Kerry had illegal meetings with the very hostile Iranian Regime, which can only serve to undercut our great work to the detriment of the American people,” Trump said. “He told them to wait out the Trump Administration!”
