Pompeo confiirmation hearing

Pompeo's comments came during an exchange with Sen.

Pompeo, a former Republican congressman from Kansas, has a reputation for his hawkish approach to American security.

'In syria, now, a handful of weeks ago, the Russians met their match.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D., N.H.), during Pompeo's confirmation hearing to be the next secretary of state, questioned the adequacy of the Trump administration's actions in implementing sanctions against Russian Federation.

Pompeo also said he has "never advocated for regime change", though in July he appeared to suggest taking just such a step.

"Vladimir Putin's not yet received the message sufficiently".

"The decision to nominate anti-LGBT Mike Pompeo could have serious consequences for the US and LGBT people around the globe", Griffin said in a statement. Trump also generally fumed about the Russian Federation investigation, which Comey had confirmed just two days prior. In his opening statement, Mr. Pompeo signaled that he planned to harvest a forceful diplomacy.

Mike Pompeo: "Senator, I continue to hold that view".

Separately, Trump on Thursday commended China for helping set up a meeting with Kim, a process that is ongoing.

Senators also asked about Iran, another country on which Pompeo is known to have hardline views.

At a campaign-rally-style speech in OH before spring break, Trump vowed "we'll be coming out of Syria, like, very soon" as the USA will "let the other people take care of it now". "It depends, clearly, if we're close", he said.

Pompeo says bad behavior by Russian Federation is responsible for the poor relationship.

The protester shouted about Pompeo, "This man is no diplomat!".

Trump added that Pompeo would be "great" as the country's top diplomat.

"If there is no chance to fix it, I'll recommend to the president we do our level best to work with our allies to achieve a better outcome and better deal".

Pompeo has opposed the agreement, which limited Iran's nuclear activities for a time, while lifting global sanctions.

More recently, Pompeo told CBS News that while Obama didn't want to upset Iran during the nuclear negotiations, the situation now is different. But FBI Director Christopher Wray said in January that it is becoming more hard bypass encryption - an argument frequently made in the push for devices that have a "back door" in their operating systems to allow law enforcement to access data when needed.

"My connection with President Trump is because to one issue: we've revealed value to him in the Central Intelligence Agency". Pompeo declined to provide any details about his advice.

During his prepared remarks, Pompeo opened with a charm offensive, outlining his family life and his background in the military, and assuring the committee he would restore the U.S. State Department and quickly fill the many vacancies at the department with top-notch candidates. ISIS maintains positions in the Middle Euphrates River Valley and south Damascus, and the US -allied Syrian Democratic Forces have had some of their manpower pulled away from the MERV fight to defend Kurdish cities from a Turkish onslaught.
