On Monday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to call out the Democrats who might vote against Mike Pompeo as new Secretary Of State, calling them ‘obstructionists.’
Hard to believe Obstructionists May vote against Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State. The Dems will not approve hundreds of good people, including the Ambassador to Germany. They are maxing out the time on approval process for all, never happened before. Need more Republicans!

So far, every Democrat along with Republican Rand Paul have stated that they will vote against Mike Pompeo, making it a close call whether or not Pompeo will get the congressional recommendation of confirmation.
“They have to decide that they want to put the safety and the security and the diplomacy of our country ahead of their own political games, and we’re very hopeful that they will,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told Fox News.
It will be a close call… More details at later developments.
