On Wednesday, Secretary of
Pompeo sat down with Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle,” and said the former secretary of state “fundamentally got it wrong with Iran, and we’re trying to make it right for America.”
“Secretary Kerry can’t seem to get off the stage, and you have to,” he said. “When I’m the former secretary, I’ll get off. Every previous former secretary has done that, too.”
Last week, Pompeo blasted his predecessor for “actively undermining” U.S. policy by holding meetings with Mohammad Javad Zarif, the foreign minister, since leaving office, whom he reportedly met with on several occasions and discussed the scraped nuclear deal.
Mike Pompeo said speaking with foreign governments is fine, as long as you are working on behalf of American foreign policy.
“They’re working for the foreign policy which is theirs, not the one that belongs to the United States,” he said.
