Mike Pompeo: 'All In' to Serve Under Trump

By    |   Tuesday, 25 June 2024 02:59 PM EDT

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that he's "all in" to serve under a potential second Trump Administration.

Speaking with Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday on a wide range of issues, when asked if he would serve in a potential second term of former President Donald Trump, Pompeo replied, "100%. If I get a chance to serve and to make a difference and try to help this country that's been so great to me, I am all in, Hugh."

Pompeo told Hewitt that much of the chaos around the globe stems from the Biden administration projecting weakness and stressed they have insisted on telling their adversaries what they "won't do," which "emboldens the bad guys."

"This is how you lose deterrence. It's how we lost, you know, 1,000 Israelis and a bunch of Americans on October 7. It's how we ended up with the disaster in Afghanistan. When you're constantly reminding your adversaries of the things you won't do, and reminding them that you are so fearful of escalation that you may not even help your friends in their most dire time, this is a bad recipe for the security of the American people," Pompeo said.

The former Director of the CIA said that the "Chinese Communist Party is most certainly watching" how the current White House conducts international affairs and suspects the Taiwanese and Saudi's are watching with apprehension.

"To see them slow-walk to our most important ally and friend in the region [Israel], to slow-walk weapons systems so they can do the simple task of preventing the death, further death of Israelis, is both indecent and a huge mistake for the region," Pompeo added. "Does he [Biden] have the intestinal fortitude to make very clear to the Chinese Communist Party that we don't just defend, we won't just put Patriot batteries into Taiwan, we won't just defend the island, but there will be enormous hell to pay inside of your own country if you go down that path."

While the issue of immigration continues to be a top issue in the upcoming presidential election, Pompeo said the failure of European leaders to secure their own borders has led to many nations experiencing a rightward shift.

"I think the whole world is coming to see how important sovereignty is, how important lawful borders, lawfully closed borders are. We'll all get lawful immigration right, but you have to correct this piece. And the European convulsions as a result of this failure to do the most basic duty of a government is going to reverberate for the next 12 months," Pompeo said.

When it comes to former President Trump, Pompeo was assured that his administration would bring more stability on the world stage.

"I am very confident of President Trump, who will restore that will [to confront adversaries] and that deterrence," he said.
