Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke out on Sunday to say that when he hears Joe Biden’s administration talk about “taking America back,” he believes they are talking about back to when “America was weak” during Barack Obama’s time in office.
While appearing on Fox News, Pompeo was asked by host Chris Wallace to respond to Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s interview, which aired right before his.
Pompeo Sounds Off
“Well, generically, when I hear the administration talk about taking America back, they are talking about back to what President Obama did for eight years where America was weak,” Pompeo said. “We might have been liked — a lot of people talk about how they are having this really fun time over at the G-7, everybody likes President Biden.”
“What’s important is not that they like America, but that they respect us, that we deliver good outcomes for the American people,” he continued. “We need to focus on the things that matter most to America.”
Not stopping there, Pompeo went on to talk about the concerns he has about climate change being the top of the agenda for the G-7, saying that he feels that policies like the Green New Deal won’t make lives better for the American people.
Pompeo Talks Keystone XL Pipeline
Pompeo also talked about Biden killing 10,000 jobs with the Keystone XL Pipeline in the U.S., but allowing the Russian pipeline, Nord Stream 2, to continue to be built.
“We shut down 10,000 jobs with the Keystone Pipeline here in the United States of America and then they permitted the Russian pipeline to continue to be built that will threaten the heart of Europe’s energy infrastructure and of course you were referring to the cyber attack on the Colonial Pipeline,”Pompeo said.

“President Trump and our team were very clear about what we would do in response to cyber attacks. We changed,” he added. “It’s a pretty arcane idea, but we changed the NSPM, the rules that permitted us to respond to these attacks. I hope that the Biden administration will use the tools that we provided.”
