President Donald Trump was quick to clean house when he took office, or what he referred to as ‘draining the swamp,’ but at least one former Ambassador is ready for some revenge.
Former Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy is no stranger to public office. She’s the daughter of former President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and sister of the late John F. Kennedy, Jr. Despite not having a replacement, Trump let her go when he became president.
He has another think coming if he thinks she’s done with politics, though.
According to the New York Post, Kennedy is planning on running for the senate in 2018. Assistant Secretary of the State Department Daniel R. Russel said:
“She transformed herself from a celebrity into an influential public figure statesman. [She] became trusted, respected, liked and listened to.”
Which is the polar opposite of Trump, who has an approval rating somewhere in the 40s to lower 30s.
Running for the senate may not be the only thing on Kennedy’s mind, though. All of the little Trumpkins might be excited about him winning again in 2020, unless this whole Russia collusion blesses us with an impeachment, but Kennedy might just have her eyes on the White House.
According to an anonymous Kennedy friend:
“Caroline had a successful ambassadorial run in Japan and feels really very confident about putting her hat in the ring for a New York congressional or senate seat, with even possibly bigger political objectives down the road. The presidency is on her mind now, believe me.”
If Trump thinks he can defeat yet another woman by playing his misogyny card, he’d do well to think twice with Kennedy. Fumio Kishida is Japan’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and said:
“I think most people don’t know about this, but Ambassador Kennedy was an exceptionally tough negotiator. When she gave me a firm negative response, I thought it was time for the Japanese side to come up with an alternative idea.”
Which is again unlike Trump, who chooses to act like a toddler on Twitter:
