Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo promised the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday that he was ‘going to let it rip.’
‘I’m not a diplomat,’ he reminded the crowd as he took the Orlando stage.
This allowed him to critical of President Joe Biden’s early moves on foreign policy, while touting what he viewed as successes during his time working under former President Donald Trump.
Pompeo lashed out at Biden’s domestic decisions, such as canceling the KeystoneXL pipeline, which the ex-secretary of state said ‘killed 10,000 jobs.’
He also said Chinese President Xi Jinping was smiling ‘every single minute’ about Biden’s decision to rejoin the Paris climate deal.
