Pompeo: the Biden admin. is on the verge of throwing away Trump’s foreign policy successes

American foreign policy under the Biden administration appears to be headed in the wrong direction, according to a former member of the Trump administration.

During a recent interview with Newsmax, Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expressed his concern that the Biden administration is about to squander some of the foreign policy gains that were made by the Trump administration. 

Coddling Iran

Among Pompeo’s biggest concerns is the Middle East, particularly Iran.

“I do worry that the [Biden] administration wants to coddle the regime in Iran, wants to hug them close and appease them, those are the kinds of things that create risk in the Middle East, and when you create risk the Middle East, nations are no longer in place where they can do the right thing every day and always,” Pompeo said.

Pompeo, in part here, was likely referring to the Biden administration’s plan to rejoin the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. This Obama-era policy was scrapped by former President Donald Trump because it was costly and ineffective. Trump replaced it with economic sanctions which have proven more effective.

But, according to Pompeo, in reentering the Iran nuclear deal, the Biden administration will “throw . . . away” the Trump administration’s success.

“It’s why President Trump very quickly convened a strategy, effort, and we put together a plan that put real pressure on the [Iranian] regime,” Pompeo said. “And now they’re about to throw that all away in exchange, for what appears to be, almost nothing.”

Effective foreign policy

In the interview, Pompeo also talked about what effective foreign policy looks like.

“When you’re tough, when you’re strong, where you establish deterrents, then securing American freedom is possible to do,” Pompeo said. He added, “whether it’s China or Iran or threats from malign actors in other parts of the world, terrorist organizations, what they understand is strength. They understand a leader who is prepared to do the right thing to secure American freedom every day.”

Pompeo said that based on what he has seen so far, the Biden administration has “a very muddled understanding” of what led to the Trump administration’s successes.

Pompeo also expressed concern that the Biden administration will throw these successes away simply because they were “from another administration.”

Pompeo, as is usually the case, was right on the money in this interview.

This Clown, is Brain dead and a Communist, trying to destroy America. Hopefully, we the people will not let that happen, We need to wake up America and let your voice heard, or We will be a communist country. Buzz Tuell

  4. Former President Donald J. Trump took a broken, dangerous foreign policy with Iran and an unfair trade policy with China and turned them around for the welfare and protection of hard working American tax payers. We now have an administration that is undoing the policy to the detriment of Americans. “If it’s not broken, then don’t fix it”. By undoing what is or was in place will greatly hurt our country and makes one wonder who is our real adversary.

    1. This vendetta against the Trump administration is just sick. They are not willing to save any of the great things done by Donald Trump and it is just because his accomplishments were in fact great and many. All good for the USA and it’s citizens and the safety of many countries around the world, which in turn were good for national security. The democratic hatred is accomplishing nothing and bringing America to its’ knees. And we have become a laughing stock n the process. I feel nothing but contempt for Biden and his joke of an administration for what he has and is doing to America and it’s proud citizens.

  5. Make China great. Make Iran great (with another $150 Billion in cash) and open up our borders to the world!!!! Isn’t The Sniffer great????? BTW, the thousands of those jobs that The Sniffer destroyed??? Well, they can just start pan-handling right???? SMDH!!!!

  6. This is the third term of B. Obama who hates the USA. By wrecking all the good things Trump did for the USA and her people–we now see Biden throwing all of that hard work away and Biden buying his way into the good graces of the the Communist Tyrants of the World.. He is too far gone to realize that giving away the strengths of the USA will come back to bite us all in the Azz, How much longer this can go on until China just steps in ad invades the USA?.
