Where Does Mike Pompeo Stand on the Issues? Too Close to Trump

Mr Pompeo is strongly opposed to the Iran nuclear deal, and Mr Trump said they have a "very, very similar thought process".
"We got along actually quite well but we disagreed on things", Trump said.
Scaramucci's hiring prompted press secretary Sean Spicer to quit after a six-month run that included a string of public slights by Trump, including the president excluding the devout Roman Catholic from a meeting with the pope during a trip to the Vatican.
Because of North Korea's nuclear weapons, an American president says he is willing to meet an Orwellian dictator of a small, bankrupt state. He said his tenure will officially end on March 31.
However, Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Steven Goldstein said the Secretary of State "had every intention of staying" in his job, and was "unaware of the reason" for his firing. Just hours later, Goldstein himself was sacked.
Goldstein also said that Tillerson only found out about his sacking in the tweet. Current and former White House officials said Pompeo has proven more adept at negotiating the shifting power structures inside the administration and in reading and responding to the wishes of the president.
Pompeo said in a statement that "I look forward to guiding the world's finest diplomatic corps in formulating and executing the president's foreign policy".
Tillerson called on all State Department employees to treat each other with "integrity and honesty", suggesting a contrast to the way he was removed.
Tillerson has pushed Trump to remain and had been pursuing a delicate strategy with European allies and others to try to improve or augment the Obama-era deal to Trump's liking.
The US President has publicly undercut Tillerson's diplomatic initiatives many times, including this week when the former Secretary of State's comments about Russian Federation appeared at odds with those of the White House.
Pompeo described President Obama's effort to cut carbon pollution at home (through the Clean Power Plan) and overseas (through the Paris climate deal) as a "perverse fixation on achieving his economically harmful environmental agenda" and as "worshiping a radical environmental agenda".
Trump's next opportunity to reimpose sanctions lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal falls on May 12.
Pompeo will need to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate, which now has an extremely narrow Republican majority. "He will do a fantastic job!"
"I think the world of Gina", Clapper said.
Pompeo is also likely to also oppose the commercial illogic of the Iran nuclear agreement, which enriches the Islamic clerics who rule the nation for their nuclear restraint and then allows them to use billions of dollars to underwrite their aggressive regional ambitions.
