President Trump blasted John Kerry for having "illegal meetings" with members of the Iranian Regime and questioned whether the former secretary of state was registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
"John Kerry is out giving advice to Iran about how to maneuver around what Donald Trump is doing, it's insidious", said former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer.
Trump suggested that it was "illegal" for Kerry to meet with Iran and tell them "to wait out the Trump Administration!" "You can't find precedent for this in United States history".

Trump withdrew the USA from the landmark agreement forged under Barack Obama, saying it was "defective" and unable to rein in Iranian behavior or halt the Islamic Republic's quest to develop nuclear weapons. Was he registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act? "And we all have conversations [about] the state of affairs with the world in order to understand them". That statute requires those who represent the interests of foreign governments in a "political or quasi-political capacity" to disclose those relationships and details about their activities.
A day later he added: "John Kerry can't get over the fact that he had his chance and blew it!"
