The 2020 election was one of the most contested in recent memory, and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been at the center of it all. In a recent interview with Sky News, Pompeo shared his thoughts on the election, the January 6th attack on the Capitol, and the potential 2024 presidential election. Read on to discover what the potential 2024 presidential candidate had to say about the 2020 election and the peaceful transition of power.
When asked why his new book, “Never Give an Inch: Fighting for the America I Love”, does not focus more on the January 6th attack on the Capitol and former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the election, Pompeo defended the outcome of the election and praised it as an example of a “peaceful transition” of power. He condemned the violent aspects of the attack, but blamed security officials, and not Trump, for the violence at the Capitol.
Pompeo was also asked about his comments days after the 2020 election that there would be a smooth transition to “a second Trump administration.” He argued that his remarks were taken out of context and that he spoke decently about the United States of America. He also said that there were “lots of anomalies” in the election and that we can’t have that in the United States.
When asked about Trump’s potential candidacy in the 2024 presidential election, Pompeo said that Trump will “make his case to the American people” and that there will be many others from both parties who will also believe they should be the next leader. Trump himself said that whether or not he would support another Republican if they were to win the GOP nomination next year would depend on who the nominee was.
It’s clear that Mike Pompeo is ready for the 2024 presidential election, and that he is not backing down from his support of Trump. His comments on the 2020 election and the peaceful transition of power, as well as his thoughts on Trump’s potential candidacy, show that he is a potential force to be reckoned with in the upcoming election. We’ll have to wait and see what happens in the future, but it’s clear that Mike Pompeo is ready for the challenge.
