Family Research Council Statement on the nomination of Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State
WASHINGTON, DC – Today President Trump announced that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will be replaced by CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following reaction:
“President Trump has been an agent of change in Washington. It is hard to identify another federal agency that is in more need of change than the State Department, which has historically and consistently been at cross purposes with American values and principles. Mike Pompeo is a proven leader, and I am very confident that he will be the desperately needed agent of change at State,” concluded Perkins.
