John Kerry: Trump Saying He’ll Negotiate Better Climate Deal Is Like O.J. Searching For ‘The Real Killer’

Former Secretary of State John Kerry said President Trump’s vow to negotiate a better Paris climate deal is like O.J. Simpson’s famous 1995 pledge to find the person who killed Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.

“When Donald Trump says, well, we’re going to negotiate a better deal, you know, he’s going to go out and find a better deal? That’s like O.J. Simpson saying he’s going to go out and find the real killer,” Kerry, who helped negotiate the historic international agreement to mitigate global warming when he was secretary of state under President Barack Obama, said​ Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”




​”​Everybody knows he isn’t going to do that because he doesn’t believe in it,” Kerry ​added​.

“If he did believe in it, he wouldn’t have pulled out of Paris. America has unilaterally ceded global leadership on this issue, which for years, even Republican Presidents George H.W. Bush pushed in this direction.”




Trump announced he would withdraw the US from the 2015 agreement during a White House speech last Thursday. ​​

“We are getting out,” ​Trump said. “But we will start to negotiate, and we will see if we can make a deal that’s fair. And if we can, that’s great.​”

Trump has repeatedly claimed that the ‘climate change’ concept is a hoax created by the Chinese government.

On Jan. 25, 2014, Trump tweeted, “NBC News just called it the great freeze — coldest weather in years. Is our country still spending money on the GLOBAL WARMING HOAX?”

On Jan. 29, 2014, Trump tweeted: “Snowing in Texas and Louisiana, record setting freezing temperatures throughout the country and beyond. Global warming is an expensive hoax!”

That very same day, Trump tweeted, “Give me clean, beautiful and healthy air – not the same old climate change (global warming) bullshit! I am tired of hearing this nonsense.”
