Nine Things President Trump Will Never Do Because John Kerry Did Them
Update: November 3, 2016
A year and a half later, with five days before Election Day, Donald Trump is still using this line.
Trump mocks John Kerry for his biking injury – "I promise you I will never enter into a bicycle race"

Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump make it clear to reportedly sold-out crowd at the American Airlines Center in Dallas on Monday that he would not make the same mistakes Secretary of State John Kerry has. Not only would he tear Kerry’s Iran deal to shreds, but he would never fall off a bike in the middle of negotiations, as the occasional Beacon Hill resident did.
“If I am elected president, I will never go into a bicycle race,” said Trump, who appeared on a 1989 cover of Winning magazine, a once popular cycling publication, and sponsored the biggest bicycle race in a America in the late 80s.
His remarks echo a similar quote he gave The Wall Street Journal in June:
I will stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons. And we won’t be using a man like Secretary Kerry that has absolutely no concept of negotiation, who’s making a horrible and laughable deal, who’s just being tapped along as they make weapons right now, and then goes into a bicycle race at 72 years old, and falls and breaks his leg. I won’t be doing that. And I promise I will never be in a bicycle race. That I can tell you.
If President Trump would avoid bicycle races simply because Kerry partakes, what else might he be missing out on?
1. Play hockey with Bruins legend Ray Bourque (in stars-and-stripes mitts, no less).
2. Take a leisurely ride along the beautiful Esplanade.
3. Go windsurfing in Nantucket.
4. Go snowboarding in Idaho.
5. Go skiing, also in Idaho.
6. Chat with Bob Kraft on the Patriots sideline.
(Though Trump’s good friend Tom Brady might still shoot him an invite.)
7. Chow down with the troops at a mess hall in Afghanistan.
8. Throw out the first pitch at Fenway Park.
9. High-five Kevin Millar.
