As the new secretary of state, Mike Pompeo just inherited a worldwide political firestorm

President Donald Trump announced Tuesday that current CIA Director, Mike Pompeo, will replace Rex Tillerson as secretary of state. Trump praised his newest choice for the pivotal position, tweeting that Pompeo “will do a fantastic job!”

In his role as director of the CIA, Pompeo has taken a tough stance on foreign policy, which is a good thing given the political firestorm he’s just stepped into.

“He [Mike Pompeo] is inheriting a diplomatic mess. The world is on the verge of monumental change,” said Glenn on today’s show. “[Let’s] just go around the world with Mike, to get an idea of what he has now been bequeathed.”
