About "Mike Pompeo"
Mike Pompeo was confirmed last week as Secretary of State for the United States of America. After Rex Tillerson’s firing due to personal and ideological disagreements with the President, Trump was reportedly looking for a more loyalist candidate. In Mike Pompeo, that’s exactly who he found.
Pompeo is a former representative from Kansas with robust ties to the Tea Party. He graduated at the top of his class at West Point, went on to become the editor of the Harvard Law review, and as a representative participated in the House Intelligence Committee as well as the energy and commerce panel. After that, he became CIA director in the Trump Administration. The man has a resume.
Yet, he is not without opposition. Many democrats and conservative commentators call him too hawkish on foreign policy issues. His views on Russian meddling in the election run in direct contradiction with the President’s position. Further, many are saying he’s too loyalist and won’t be able to stand up to Donald Trump. Is he the right choice?
This week’s final round goes deep into Mike Pompeo’s confirmation. Other topics include Kanye West, the NRA, Gaza protests, the possibility of a deadly flu epidemic, Subway restaurants, diarrhea (not associated with Subway), Paul Ryan, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and more!
