Mike Pompeo campaigning for the midterms and considering running for president
As he tours throughout the nation helping Republican politicians in the 2022 midterm elections, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ponders a presidential bid. He asserted that the party is acting consistently with what we could expect in the lead-up to a critical time. Pompeo then said that this doesn’t mean that this is what the leaders have decided. Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State in 2022, spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida, on February 25, 2022.
Will he be running for the 2024 Presidential election?
For his part, Pompeo told CBS News’ top Washington reporter, Major Garrett, in an interview on “The Takeout” podcast this week that, should he decide to run for president, his campaigning effort this autumn will serve as the foundation for his presidential campaign. According to him, you can’t perform a presidential run from a stationary position. When asked about the possible influence of former President Trump if he decides to run, Pompeo said that it would have no bearing on his personal choice. He acknowledged that running against his old employer would be difficult, and he thought it would also be difficult for President Trump. While Pompeo stated he would support Trump if he won the 2024 election, he also added that he would be happy to serve in his government again if asked. A presidential candidacy was discussed, and he indicated he would not turn down the chance if he could assist the party in creating a change in the nation and delivering things effectively that meant most to his family, his countrymen, and the country. In other words, it doesn’t imply that Trump hasn’t made errors, according to Pompeo.
What does he think of Trump?
According to him, the attack on the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, was in some way the fault of the previous president.
While Pompeo arrived at the State Department that day, he did not feel Trump’s participation merited an effort to remove him from office under the 25th Amendment. Even though he was said to have talked about the issue with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, he denied that there had been any serious talks about it among Trump’s Cabinet members. According to Pompeo, he did not have a meaningful discussion on the 25th Amendment with anybody. He said he would have started the talk if he thought it was essential to eliminate the previous president.
What does he believe?
Russia’s most recent attack
In response, Pompeo said that the most significant danger to the nation comes not from Vladimir Putin but the Chinese Communist Party. The stakes are quite high for this. At first glance, it seems that the powerful Chinese Communist Party and the Russian Federation will be a strong threat to the United States. The Gun Control measure
Secretary of State Pompeo indicated he couldn’t support it. Making sure everyone is safe is easy in other ways. Guns are a few things that have been taken away from them.
Roe v. Wade’s overturning
He is sure that Roe made it impossible for the democratic process to have a logical conversation about something very important to many Americans at the time. According to him, every human being has the right to be born.
