President-elect Donald Trump's choice to be the next CIA director, Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., gets a thumbs up from the intelligence community, former CIA director and retired Gen. Michael Hayden told Sunday's "The Cats Roundtable." 

"The word from the intel community was they thought that was a pretty good pick,” Hayden host John Catsimatidis.

“I know the congressman's got a well-armed reputation for being a partisan Republican, tea party roots, was really focused on Benghazi and that whole email server thing. But even when he was doing that, what I hear from the guys in the community, John, he did his homework."

Pompeo stands a good chance to get confirmed in the role by Congress, because of his diligence and the intel community support.

"He’s going forward, assuming he’s confirmed of course, he’s going forward with I think a lot of folks in the agency are going to be happy to see him."

Also in "The Cats Roundtable" interview, retire Gen. Hayden pinpointed North Korea as the first country to test Trump's administration, because that is what it does to get attention. There is a "New World Order" to be sorted out, too, he added.

"What I would want to press upon the new president is that we are seeing major tectonic shifts in the global strategic situation," Gen. Hayden said.
