Trump on John Kerry possibly running in 2020: ‘I should only be so lucky’

President Trump reacted to former Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent reluctance to rule out a 2020 run.

“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!” Trump tweeted on Monday.

During an interview with CBS News on Sunday, Kerry was asked about the possibility of launching a 2020 presidential campaign.

He didn’t specifically say “no.”

What he did say was, “I’m really not thinking about it. 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 added.
