Former Secretary of State John Kerry trashed President Donald Trump’s foreign policy in an appearance Saturday night on CNN, hosted by David Axelrod, former political strategist to President Barack Obama, their mutual boss.

As reported by The Hill, Kerry criticized what he called Trump’s “pull-out, walk-away presidency.” He claimed the 45th president “has isolated America,” that he “is not negotiating,” and “capitulates to the president of Russia.”

Kerry - Trump - Decision - US - Troops

Kerry even criticized Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria. And he vowed to keep up his criticism, possibly by running for president in 2020: “”I’m going to be in the middle of the debate no matter what, period.”

No doubt Kerry and Axelrod are fuming over current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s recent speech in Cairo, which was a point-by-point demolition of Obama’s own speech there, and the policy of appeasement he adopted.

Then-Sen. Kerry (D-MA) later supported Obama’s effort to pull out of Iraq prematurely, despite the gains of the “surge” in Iraq — a decision that led to the rise of the terror regime known as the so-called Islamic State, or ISIS.

As Secretary of State, Kerry accepted the dubious job of carrying out Obama’s foreign policy, which was driven by the notion that the U.S. was not a force for good in the world except in retreat, militarily and economically.
