Mike Pompeo made clear during a Fox News interview that he is not concerned about running against Donald Trump in the 2024 primaries, as the former secretary of state lays the groundwork for a presidential run.
Pompeo was on Neil Cavuto’s program to discuss Trump and Biden’s documents scandals and debt hike talks when the host asked, “In the meantime, you’re running for president, aren’t you?”
“Good, Neil. Yeah. Nice try. Yeah, I like that. I like that little passive-aggressive. Perfect. We’re doing all the things that one would do to get to get ready. But we’re, we’re still trying to figure our way through it. We don’t have anything to announce today,” replied a smiling Pompeo.
Would it be impacted at all by Donald Trump?” Cavuto asked. “I mean, he is running. He’s the only announced candidate. You know, you worked with him. And obviously he has said of Ron DeSantis, of course, if he runs it, it’s to paraphrase, it would be a little disloyal. He’s done a lot for them. Do you feel that way?”
“Oh, goodness no,” replied Pompeo. “Well, I was incredibly loyal to America and to the work that President Trump wanted done. The American people will decide who the next Republican nominee is, and anybody who throws their hat in the ring has the responsibility to go out, compete, make their case, make the arguments to the people of Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina. And let the American people sort through who they think got to lead this country forward.”
