Mike Pompeo, who was the former United States secretary of state, is hinting at a presidential bid against his previous boss Donald Trump in 2024.
Pompeo told The Times that he is likely to seek the presidency in 2024, even if Trump decides to run again:
Recent weeks have seen Mike Pompeo touting “America Last” policies backed by the GOP and Democratic establishment in Congress. He feels that America was correct to spend tens of billions on a proxy conflict against Russia and should commit hundreds of billions more to this dangerous situation, which has the potential for World War 3.
“Putin’s illegal, aggressive war is a planned genocide, which the United Nations has defined as the purposeful annihilation of an identity, as established in 1948,” Pompeo claimed before an audience of neocons in Washington D.C., uttering laughably false nonsense. “Each genocide is unique, although they are all relevant to the individual.”
“This genocide, like the Holodomor created by Stalin that killed millions of Ukrainians, must be named to be combated,” he continued.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that peace is not an option in the quarrel between Russia and Ukraine, and the United States must continue to prop up Ukraine’s corrupt ruling class no matter how many soldiers die uselessly or how much money is wasted.
“The United States and the nations of the world cannot pretend that the war in Ukraine may be ended through a negotiated peace, which placates Russia, since such a peace can’t be negotiated with Putin,” Pompeo added.
“If Ukraine is to achieve peace, independence, and freedom, it must win this war decisively.”
There have been allegations that while serving as Secretary of State, Pompeo, a former CIA deep-state spy who boasted about deceiving the public, purposely subverted Trump’s “America First” foreign policy:
“Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has created the appearance that he is one of President Donald Trump’s most devoted followers, but before entering government service he was a vicious “Never Trumper.”
“You know, the other day Donald Trump said that if he tells a soldier to commit a war crime, the soldier will simply go and do it.” He made the statement when stumping for ‘Little’ Marco Rubio during the Kansas GOP presidential primary in 2016.
In his capacity as Secretary of State, Pompeo has allowed other “Never Trumpers” to join high-ranking government posts.
