Today, the Senate confirmed Mike Pompeo as the U.S. Secretary of State. Competitive Enterprise Institute director of the Center for Energy and Environment Myron Ebell says Mike Pompeo will be a forceful advocate for Americans’ interests and the importance of affordable, reliable energy.
CEI Center for Energy and Environment Director Myron Ebell:
We’re pleased the Senate has confirmed former member of Congress and CIA Director Mike Pompeo as the next U.S. Secretary of State. Pompeo has a track record of protecting American interests, and we’re confident he will continue to stand up to foreign bureaucrats who threaten the security and economic well-being of our nation. Pompeo also understands the importance of affordable, reliable energy to Americans’ health and ability to provide for our families. He will be a forceful advocate of President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the unlawful and economically destructive Paris climate treaty.
