Mike Pompeo's Path To Foggy Bottom Becomes Clearer

Mike Pompeo's Path To Foggy Bottom Becomes Clearer

Japan's Asahi Shimbun newspaper reported on Monday that Kim adopted a friendly approach to Donald Trump's emissary, who is set to replace Rex Tillerson as USA secretary of state, and apparently informed Mr Pompeo that he is ready to offer to scrap his nuclear arsenal when he sits down for full talks. "I also met with and spoke to Director Pompeo", Paul tweeted Monday.

Mr. Trump told reporters last week that Mr. Paul has "never let us down" and that "he's a good man".

"After calling continuously for weeks for Director Pompeo to support President Trump's belief that the Iraq war was a mistake, and that it is time to leave Afghanistan, today I received confirmation that Director Pompeo agrees with President Trump", Mr. Paul wrote.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said there were enough votes in the full Senate to confirm Pompeo this week.

In any case, North Korea will be the ultimate test for Pompeo and Trump's foreign policy. Mr. Pompeo apologised for the incident later. "I understand the polarization we have as a nation", Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, the committee's chairman, said Monday.

Isakson was delivering the eulogy for a friend in Atlanta, and was unable to return to Washington until later in the evening.




Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who was undecided on Pompeo's confirmation, also offered his support on Monday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted to move his nomination to the chamber's floor.

Trump deserves considerable credit for making this all happen.

"Senate confirmation of anti-LGBTQ Mike Pompeo could have serious consequences for the United States and LGBTQ people around the globe", said Griffin in his statement. Whatever their motivation, though, the fact that they have come out in favor of Pompeo's nomination essentially means that he will be easily confirmed by the end of this week.

Then Trump chose Pompeo, a close ally who had already been confirmed by the Senate as Central Intelligence Agency director previous year.

Mr. Pompeo faced the prospects of an unfavorable vote by the Committee until the last minute, when Republican Rand Paul withdrew his objection and voted 'yes.' All 11 Republican members voted for Mr. Pompeo.
