AMCD Supports Pompeo for Secretary of State
The right man at the right time.
April 12, 2018
The American Mideast Coalition for Democracy (AMCD) fully supports President Trump’s pick for Secretary of State, CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Not only is Director Pompeo eminently qualified for the job, having held important posts all across the government, but more importantly, he is much more closely aligned with President Trump’s overall foreign policy on major issues which is shared by AMCD.
“It is urgent that the Senate confirm Mike Pompeo as quickly as possible,” said AMCD President John Hajjar. “Our country is facing a severe test with North Korea and Iran both racing to acquire nuclear first-strike capability. With the situation in Syria reaching a crucial juncture with Russia, the Senate needs to act quickly on this important nomination.”
“Mike Pompeo is a pragmatic and strategic thinker much like President Trump,” added AMCD Co-Director Tom Harb. “Along with UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Defense Secretary James Mattis and National Security Advisor John Bolton, Director Pompeo will implement Trump’s primary foreign policy vision which is peace through strength.”
“Iranian aggression abroad and oppression at home must be strongly countered,” said Iranian-American AMCD Vice President, Hossein Khorram. “I think Pompeo as Secretary of State will bring a strong commitment to those goals. He was a vocal critic of the Iran Deal and supports the President’s plan to eventually scrap it. All Iranians yearning for freedom from Islamist oppression should take heart with this nomination.”
AMCD calls on the Senate to quickly move Director Pompeo’s nomination forward and to confirm him as US Secretary of State as soon as possible. Our country’s future and indeed, the future of the world is at stake.
