Former Secretary of State John Kerry said "people are going to die" because of President Trump's decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement.
"People are going to die because of the decision Donald Trump made," Kerry said in an interview with The Guardian published on Friday. "My kids and my grandkids are going to face a difficult world because of what Donald Trump has done."
The Guardian questioned Kerry about a variety of subjects, including many he writes about in his book, "Every Day is Extra," that was released in September.
In it, Kerry details the Obama administration's work to secure both the Paris climate deal and the Iran nuclear deal. Trump withdrew the U.S. from both of the agreements in his first two years in office.
But Kerry said that he does not take Trump's actions personally, adding that he feels "better than a lot of people think about the Paris deal. He noted that Trump's withdrawal does not affect the other 194 countries that agreed to curb global greenhouse gas emissions through individual, nonbinding national plans.
He added that countries such as France, Britain and Russia have talked with the foreign minister of Iran to evaluate how the nuclear deal can move forward.
"Im sorry for the world," Kerry said. "Im sorry for my country, which looks ridiculous. Look, Ive known all my life that this is a tough business, that politics is hard that there are ups and down and if you personalize them youre never going to survive.
Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, has repeatedly criticized Trump throughout his presidency. He's attracted speculation about a potential run against Trump in 2020, and he told The Guardian that he hasn't ruled it out.
"Im just going to think quietly about whether I think its
necessary," he said. "Whether I feel I can bring something to the table thats essential, that somebody else cant."
I’m sorry you were ever born Lurch.
Nah. Everyone’s already dead due to net neutrality.
Give us real evidence YAAAAAWN. Where are some actual proof there is Global Warming.
People died because Jon Karry did not pay his fair share of taxes on his $4 million boat.
So globul warming is trumps fault?
Next to him at the bar sat a horse, who looked at John, and John at him, and the horse said "why the long face?"
Let Kerry volunteer to become carbon-neutral. Shaddup and go away.
I actually believe Lurch on this one. We will ALL die................eventually.
Everyone dies in the end, John.
You first Kerry
Kerry was the worst SOS. And thats not intended as a compliment.
People died because an asshole named John Kerry committed at least a moral act of treason during the Vietnam war.
A lot of people spent a lot of money to get this, were planning to make a LOT of money on that investment.
There are still people who believe CNN and MSNBC. I can’t understand it, but I know it to be true. They don’t reconise propaganda when they see it. Its like they look around and determine not what is true, or right, but rather, where the cool people are. So if Obama and George Clooney say something, its safer to agree with it.

This POS needs to be at the front of the line!
Everything is President Trump’s fault.
You first Skerry!
“Kerry: People are going to die’ due to Trump’s withdrawal from Paris climate deal”
Like you I hope.
Teresa is getting on in years and,I’ve read,is in failing health. Shouldn’t “Live Shot” (a nickname given to him by a local Boston talk host) be concentrating his efforts on finding yet another billionaire heiress?
