The Latest: Trump pleased that Pompeo is secretary of state

The Latest: Trump pleased that Pompeo is secretary of state

The Latest on CIA Director Mike Pompeo's nomination to serve as secretary of state (all times local): 2:10 p.m. President Donald Trump is applauding the Senate's confirmation of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state. Trump says, 'Having a patriot of Mike's immense talent, energy, and intellect leading the Department of State will be an incredible asset for our country at this critical time in history.' He adds that Pompeo 'will always put the interests of America first,' and says the outgoing CIA director has his full trust and support. Pompeo on Thursday secured the votes of 57 senators, with 42 voting no and one senator absent. It was one of the slimmest margins for the job in recent history. Pompeo is expected to be sworn into office immediately and then depart within hours of the vote for Europe on his first trip as secretary of state. ___ 1 p.m. The Senate has narrowly confirmed Mike Pompeo to be secretary of state. The outgoing CIA director secured support from 57 senators, with 42 voting no and one senator absent. It's one of the slimmest margins for the job in recent history. Every past nominee since at least the Carter administration has received 85 or more yes votes, with the exception of Trump's first secretary of state, Rex Tillerson. He got 56 yes votes. Pompeo is a former Republican congressman from Kansas. He is expected to be sworn in almost immediately so he can begin serving as top diplomat. Pompeo has been deeply engaged in the administration's efforts on North Korea and recently traveled to Pyongyang. ___ 11:30 a.m. Outgoing CIA Director Mike Pompeo is expected to clear his last hurdle to become secretary of state when the Senate votes midday Thursday to confirm him. Pompeo's confirmation narrowly made it out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Monday after last-minute support from Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky. He's expected to have an easier time in the full Senate, though the tally will still likely be close. If confirmed, Pompeo will replace Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil CEO fired by President Donald Trump on Twitter last month. Pompeo is expected to be sworn in almost immediately. A long list of pressing issues awaits him including a decision on the Iran nuclear deal and Trump's upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

President Trump’s choice for VA Secretary withdraws his nomination

Facing numerous questions about his past work record, White House physician Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson withdrew from consideration for VA Secretary on Thursday morning, calling a variety of claims about him, ‘false and fabricated.’

“If they had any merit, I would not have been selected,” Jackson said in a written statement. “I am regretfully withdrawing my nomination,” Jackson said in a written statement.

“Unfortunately, because of how Washington works, these false allegations have become a distraction for this President and the important issue we must be addressing – how we give the best care to our nation’s heroes,” Jackson added.
