Mika Brzezinski to John Kerry: Why Wouldn't You Run For President During This Crucial Time?


Former Secretary of State John Kerry weighed in on the president's phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, expressing "shock and amazement," Monday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

At the end of the interview, co-host Mika Brzezinski asked Kerry why he is not running for president: "So, Mr. Secretary, before you go, of course, we won’t put you in the awkward position of talking about the other Democratic candidates. But some might ask why wouldn’t you run, during this crucial time, for president of the United States?"

"Because I’m doing what I’m doing right now," Kerry replied. "How’s that?"

"Pretty good," Mika replied.

Kerry lost the 2004 presidential election and later served as Secretary of State during Ukraine's 2014 government coup and the subsequent war with Russia in which Vladimir Putin seized Crimea.
