Kerry Admits Meeting With Zarif Several Times, Says Did Not 'Coach' Him

The Trump administration has spoken out regarding controversial meetings that former Secretary of State John Kerry had with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif.

Earlier this week, Trump tweeted that Kerry's meetings with the "hostile" Iranian regime were "illegal", and that the Obama administration member was "BAD".

During interviews this week Mr Kerry has accused the Trump administration of pursuing a policy of regime change in Iran.

In his tweet, Trump asked whether Kerry had complied with the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

Kerry and Maher spoke about the "Mean Girls" mentality coming from Trump's office with Kerry ultimately defending his decision to have discussions with Iran since leaving his role.

Later Wednesday, during an appearance on Fox News' "The Daily Briefing", Kerry did not deny the suggestion he told Iranians to "wait out" Trump until the next Democratic president.

Former secretary of state John F. Kerry speaks during a Commonwealth Club of California event in San Francisco this month.

"I don't have personal knowledge of those meetings, but, if that is happening, again, I would find it very inappropriate", said State Department official Manisha Singh.

Pompeo said former secretaries of state from either political party ought not to be engaged in US foreign policy.

Kerry, who helped lead the Obama administration negotiations for the multi-nation nuclear deal reached with Iran in 2015, insisted that there is "absolutely nothing unusual" about ex-diplomats continuing to meet with officials from other countries.

Such meetings, between a private USA citizen and foreign official, are not against the law and not necessarily inappropriate or a violation of federal regulations, but Trump and his allies say they are evidence that former Obama administration officials are trying to subvert Trump's policy.

Trump withdrew the U.S. 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.

"I wasn't in the meeting, but I am reasonably confident that he was not there in support of United States policy with respect to the Islamic Republic of Iran", Pompeo said.

It all started when Maher asked Kerry why Trump seemed to be mad at him, to which he replied, "I don't know".

Mr Trump withdrew the U.S. from a nuclear deal that Mr Kerry clinched in 2015 between Iran and six world powers.

He also criticized Kerry's meetings with Iran, questioning how former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is being tried for allegedly violating the Logan Act. "BAD!" Trump tweeted on Thursday. The controversy flared as the USA pressures countries to stop doing business with the Islamic Republic ahead of new oil sanctions planned for early November. I've also seen reports that he is apparently providing, according to reports, advice to the Iranian government. "He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!"

Kerry continued by explaining how he and the late John McCain had brought America too far forward for them to regress under Trump's administration.
