At no point has Mike Pompeo even pretended to take his job seriously during his tenure as Donald Trump’s Secretary of State. Pompeo has spent most of his time Ukraine-related crimes and carrying out Trump’s corrupt bidding. Now that the United States is in a crisis, he’s still refusing to do his job.
Mike Pompeo is now openly bragging on Twitter about how he’s sitting at home doing nothing. This is what most Americans are supposed to be doing right now, but when you’re Secretary of State, it’s a different story. Pompeo is refusing to work with anyone to bring stranded Americans home. Democratic Congressman Joe Neguse just ripped him to pieces for it:
My staff is working around the clock to help get constituents home from Peru.
Over 60 of my colleagues joined me yesterday in imploring the Secretary of State to help.
But he can't be bothered.
Mr. Secretary, pick up the phone and help us get our fellow Americans home. https://t.co/YLtmXYRrPz
