Inhofe Praises Senate Confirmation of Mike Pompeo

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement after CIA Director Mike Pompeo was confirmed as Secretary of State:

“As America faces grave threats from around the world, especially with the rise of China and Russia, I am confident that Mike Pompeo is the right choice to serve as our next Secretary of State. We share a commitment to strengthening American leadership and diplomacy around the world so our allies can trust us and our enemies will fear us once again. I congratulate him on his bipartisan confirmation and look forward to working with him as we consider the implementation of the National Defense Strategy and the future of the flawed Iran Nuclear Deal.”
