Kerry: Trump Saying He’ll Negotiate Better Climate Deal Is Like O.J. Saying He’ll ‘Find the Real Killer’

Former Secretary of State John Kerry appeared on Meet the Press today to again slam President Trump for his decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord.

He said he assumed that common sense and science would prevail, asking Chuck Todd what Trump knows that his Secretary of State, tons of CEOs, and other world leaders don’t that would lead him to this decision.

And Kerry then went so far as to say this:

“When Donald Trump says to the world, ‘Well, we’re gonna negotiate a better deal,’ I mean, you know, he’s gonna go out and find a better deal? That’s like O.J. Simpson saying he’s gonna go out and find the real killer. Everybody knows he isn’t gonna do that, because he doesn’t believe in it.”
