John Kerry: Trump Clearly Doesn't Understand America, Not "Capable" Of Being President


Former Secretary of State John Kerry sits down with CNN's Fareed Zakaria to discuss foreign affairs and the US political climate ahead of the midterm elections. Kerry also knocked President Trump for rushing to have a summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

JOHN KERRY, FMR. SECRETARY OF STATE: I think it's more than doesn't seem capable. We have confirmed now for more than a year and a half examples by virtue of people who write a book and talk to a person like [Bob] Woodward and tell him what they're saying and observing. Woodward is obviously a terrific reporter knows how to gather his facts and protect his flanks, so his credibility is very, very high.

Some of the evidence comes directly from the president himself. For instance when you tweet chastising the Attorney General of the United States for following the law and doing what the Justice Department is supposed to do, by holding Republican congressmen as accountable as anybody else and indicting them, and the president puts it in the context of affecting the elections, you have a president who clearly doesn't understand America, doesn’t understand the Constitution, doesn't understand the role of the Justice Department, the separation of powers, and that's dangerous.
