On Thursday, President Joe Biden laid out his foreign policy objectives, making it clear that the United States would fully support its allies and punish foes such as Russia for daring to cross the United States, telling State Department employees:
“America is back, diplomacy is back at the center of our foreign policy.”
Just a few hours later, former Trump administration Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was sniping at Biden, something that even former President Donald Trump has avoided since leaving office.
During an appearance on Fox News, Pompeo remarked:
“I don’t think the American people can afford to go back to eight more years of Barack Obama‘s foreign policy. I hope they’ll move forward with a foreign policy, much more like our America First foreign policy.”
Attention Mike Pompeo: Trump lost the election! You don’t to make policy. Just sit down and be quiet!
Pompeo then added:
“We worked hard to prevent Russia from interfering in our election. I’m proud of the work that we did. I’m proud of the work we did to push back against Russia.”
Ha! Trump and Pompeo coddled Russia and Putin for four solid years.
The former State Department chief’s comments drew widespread criticism on Twitter:
Mike Pompeo is just mad that his wife lost her Federally funded indentured servants, so now he has to actually take his own dry cleaning in.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lied to the world after the November election and said: “There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration.”
I don’t care what Mike Pompeo thinks about President Biden. After defending Trump, this man has no credibility. pic.twitter.com/Y6IXAKojb9

Hey Pompeo remember only a short time ago a number of countries told you that you weren’t welcome to visit their countries? 😂😂😂

church bells rang throughout Paris when Biden was elected. The western world was jubilant that Trump didn’t get a second term. Part of that joy was in knowing that Pompeo would no longer be secretary of state

To be fair, some night managers at Red Lobster aren’t smug partisan ham hocks who believe in “alternative” facts & participate in sedition.😉

Much like the clown he used to work for in the White House, Mike Pompeo can’t accept that he’s now completely irrelevant.
