What difference does it make,Trump has demonstrated time and again,that the only opinion he values is his own.This guy will serve as his puppet.
He'll never be a diplomat, no matter the title. And how lovely to put an ex-torturer (and former head of one of those infamous secret prisons) in charge at the CIA too. More horrific appointments from Trump.
Another anti position cabinet post completely at odds with the position to be filled. It's bad enough to happen with the environment, education, health, but bringing an aggressive hawk into the international diplomatic stage does not bode well for the health of the country or world.
So, another unqualified member of the Administration? Well as history has shown- within this Administration...his career will be short lived. We are far from the bottom people, so strap in..
Pompeo is a proponent of torture & is unfit for the role of Secretary of State.His deputy, Gina Haspel, also a proponent & practitioner of torture, is unfit to replace him as Director of the CIA.The Senate must protect the progress, such as it is, of minimizing the consequences of the United States' decision to torture prisoners.
Who is Gina Haspel, the nominee to run the CIA? She was allegedly involved in running one of the CIA’s “black sites” where detainees were tortured, and was, according to The Intercept, “centrally involved in the worst abuses of the CIA’s Bush-era torture regime.”
if everyone was whining that rex 'big oil' tillerson was sec of state and was about to make some wild oil deal with russia... shouldn't you be happy about the change?
Once again, the all talk, no action, bloviating, sackless coward in the Oval Office who doesn't have the courage to face those he fires strikes again. I only fire the best should be his motto. Well hopefully Tillerson will finally say what he truly thinks of this moron.
Trump promised that his administration would be staffed with "only the very best of the very worst." A man of honor, Trump has kept his word.
Might be a great time to open up a new temporary employment agency consisting of ex-government employees. I was in South Korea when I served in the US Navy years ago - maybe Trump will hire me to handle the negotiations with North Korea!
