ALERT: Pompeo Abruptly Cancels Trip to Germany


Secretary of State Mike Pompeo abruptly canceled a scheduled trip to Germany, where he was planning to meet with Chancellor Angela Merkel "due to pressing issues," according to the State Department.

From CNN:
No specific reason was given for the cancellation. The press pool traveling with Pompeo has not been told where they are going next, and have been warned they may not be able to report from the country they are going to until after their departure...
There are few countries where press traveling with US officials are barred from reporting until after departure, with Iraq and Afghanistan being the most common...
The secretary had been in the midst of an overseas trip and had been due to meet Tuesday with Merkel and German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.
