Rand is going to support the nomination of interventionist war hawk Mike Pompeo to be the next Secretary of State.
I just finished speaking to @realDonaldTrump, after speaking to him several times today. I also met with and spoke to Director Pompeo.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) April 23, 2018
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 the Director Pompeo agrees with @realDonaldTrump— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) April 23, 2018
President Trump believes that Iraq was a mistake, that regime change has destabilized the region, and that we must end our involvement with Afghanistan.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) April 23, 2018
Having received assurances from President Trump and Director Pompeo that he agrees with the President on these important issues, I have decided to support his nomination to be our next Secretary of State.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) April 23, 2018
Mike Pompeo quotes:
Legal and bureaucratic impediments to surveillance should be removed.
Edward Snowden should be brought back from Russia and given due process. And I think the proper outcome would be that he would be given a death sentence.
We have to get rid of ISIS, have to get rid of ISIS. We have no choice.
