Mike Pompeo, Trump’s new CIA chief is unlike anyone we have currently in the Obama administration. He is a well-respected army veteran, pro-life advocate, and an evangelical Christian. And he’s already established himself as a strong force in the national security community.
Based on his recent speech at a church in Wisconsin, he could be just the man this country needs to protect Christianity and take a final stand against radical Islam.
“Muslims who think Islam is the only way needed to be dealt with—this threat to America is from people who deeply believe that Islam is the way and the light and the only answer,” Pompeo told the crowd. “These folks believe that it is religiously driven for them to wipe Christians from the face of the earth. The abhor Christians.”
He then commented on the Boston terror attack.
“It’s been just under two months since the attacks in Boston, and in those intervening weeks, the silence of Muslim leaders has been deafening,” he argued, before concluding, “Jesus Christ our savior is truly the only solution for our world.”
Pompeo is also a shrewd businessman, starting out at Thayer Aerospace, selling it up and moving on to Sentry International, which makes equipment for oilfields. Pompeo has also voted to defund Planned Parenthood, calling it the “largest commercial provider of abortions in the United States.”
President-elect Trump said in a statement that he was proud to nominate Pompeo as director of the CIA. “He has served our country with honor and spent his life fighting for the security of our citizens.” The president-elect continued, “He will be a brilliant and unrelenting leader for our intelligence community to ensure the safety of Americans and our allies.”
Pompeo said he was truly honored by the opportunity to serve and work alongside Trump “to keep America safe.”
“I also look forward to working with America’s intelligence warriors, who do so much to protect Americans each and every day.”
