John Kerry is spending a lot of time in foreign countries these days actively agitating against the president of the United States.

So it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that at the annual World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday, the former secretary of state called on President Trump to resign from office.

Asked whether he would have any words of advice for the president if he had the opportunity to talk to him directly, Kerry responded:

“I can’t play that. I just — I would — but I know that — you see, because he doesn’t take any of this seriously. He doesn’t have the ability to have that kind of conversation,” Kerry started, before concluding that he would tell the president: “Resign.”

Earlier in the conversation, the Obama administration official claimed that “people will die” because the Trump administration pulled out of the Paris climate accords, a decision that saved the American taxpayer hundreds of billions of dollars. 

“People will die because of the president’s decision,” Kerry said at a “The Future of Our Oceans” panel.

This is far from the first time that John Kerry has registered his displeasure with the president. In fact, Kerry has frequently attempted to foil this administration’s American foreign policy. In the past year, Kerry has advised rogue adversarial regimes on how to get the best of the Trump administration

In September, Kerry was spotted in Europe advising representatives from the terrorist regime in Iran on how to thwart U.S. sanctions. President Trump condemned the disgraced former secretary of state, describing his actions as “illegal.”

Last year, the former secretary of state was advising Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on how to thwart President Trump’s Middle East initiatives.

“Hold on and be strong,” Kerry told an adviser to the Palestinian president, insisting that the Palestinians should not “yield to President Trump’s demands.”
