Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, did not rule out a potential 2020 White House bid during an interview on Sunday. He said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that talking about the 2020 race is a “distraction.”
“Talking about 2020 right now is a total distraction and waste of time,” Kerry said. “What we need to do is focus on 2018. We need to win back the confidence of the country to move in a better direction and to do it in sensible ways. We are in a moment of crisis for our country. The world is in a moment of crisis.”
Kerry also said in the interview that he would “continue to be an activist” in areas where he was involved as secretary of State, including the Iran nuclear agreement and the Paris climate accord.
Trump has pulled the United States out of both of those Obama-era agreements since taking office.
“I’m going to continue to fight,” Kerry said Sunday.
