For Immediate Release: March 13, 2018
It’s hard to believe that Donald Trump could find an even worse candidate to be Secretary of State than Rex Tillerson. But he did.
Mike Pompeo threatens to further diminish the United States reputation in the world. His views on torture and human rights are despicable. He has spent his political career undermining the rights and dignity of women and girls, LGBT people and other vulnerable populations. He refuses to acknowledge the threat that climate change poses to civilization.
All of this – plus that fact that putting the head of the CIA in charge of diplomacy is one of the worst ideas ever floated – disqualifies him from being the next Secretary of State. The Senate should act quickly to reject this dangerous nomination.
