AMCD Supports Pompeo for Secretary of State

Mike Pompeo Donald Trump's new pick for US secretary of state needs the approval of the Senate to take up the role

President Trump nominated Pompeo to replace Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State.

Robert Menendez, the leading Democrat on the committee, took the opportunity to press Pompeo on President Donald Trump and the special counsel investigation into links between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. Pompeo, who tweeted about rolling back the deal as a House lawmaker, avoided a direct answer when asked if he would tell Trump to leave the deal, if a compromise can't be found.

Pompeo is to say "President Trump isn't one to play games at the negotiating table, and I won't be either".

"In the event that we conclude that we can't fix this deal ... then the President is going to be given best advice including by me", Pompeo said.

"Russia continues to act aggressively, enabled by years of soft policy towards that aggression", Pompeo will say, according to excerpts released on the eve of his nomination hearing. As the briefing was wrapping up, Trump asked everyone to leave the room except for Coats and CIA Director Mike Pompeo. He says in his remarks that the Trump administration considers Russian Federation to be "a danger to our country". "I intend to ensure that the Department of State will be just as central to the president's policies and the national security of the United States".

Pompeo is expected to say that as he met with State Department workers recently, they all said they wanted to be "empowered in their roles" and clear about Trump's mission.

Pompeo faces a rough hearing with anti-interventionists such as Sen.

Members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee have said they would press Pompeo on the administration's strategy on Syria, relations with Russia, North Korea's nuclear ambitions and plans for dealing with China's growing global clout. If the Senate acts very fast, Pompeo can start that effort this month at the Group of Seven ministerial meeting on April 22 and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ministerial meeting later that week, he will say. This long-held policy position may prove consequential as Trump mulls potential military action in Syria in response to an alleged chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta on April 7.

"We expect Director Pompeo to be able to explain exactly what financial entanglement he had with the Chinese government and why he failed to disclose it", Juan Pachon, the committee's communications director, told MClatchy.

Sen. Bob Corker, the committee's Republican chairman, said it was too early to tell how the vote would go and said even he had not decided how he would vote, though he had a "very good first meeting with him and a good conversation".

But he followed up this sober analysis by complaining about how China is dependent upon poaching American technology: "If you look at them, they are probably trying either to steal our stuff, or make sure they can defeat it", he said.

Pompeo has been far more critical than Trump of Moscow's alleged attempts to interfere with the 2016 USA presidential election.

"But there is much diplomatic work left to do, including supporting the President's intent to meet with the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un", he said.

Mike Pompeo, " the congressman-turned-CIA director who's been decided on to be secretary of country promised Thursday to create their state Department as essential to federal security conclusions regarding the intellect agency.

There is one month until a May 12 deadline that Trump set to either address "flaws" in the 2015 agreement or withdraw from it. Pompeo said Thursday that fixing the deal is in America's best interest.
