Today’s Action: Stop Trump’s nomination of Mike Pompeo

Your calls are working. CNN reported last week that Trump’s horrific nomination of Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State could be stopped in committee. But we’re not out of the fire yet.

Mike Pompeo is an Islamophobic, climate-change denying, torture-supporting warmonger. And in case that’s not a clear enough picture, Trump has even said of Pompeo, “We have a very similar thought process.”

Secretary of State serves as our country’s most important ambassador. If confirmed, we can have no doubt that Pompeo will work hard to spread Trump’s devastating ideology worldwide. He’s currently under consideration in Senate committee, so it’s crucial we act fast to stop his confirmation.

Contact your Senators and tell them to vote down Mike Pompeo’s nomination as Secretary of State.

Exactly how dangerous would a Pompeo confirmation be? A vicious opponent of President Obama’s historic anti-nuclear deal with Iran, Pompeo has already advised Trump to do all he can to dismantle the constructive relationship we worked so hard to achieve. He has even suggested invading North Korea.

Pompeo also opposed the Paris climate accord and dismisses most climate science. His leadership could send us reeling even more rapidly into the devastating effects of climate change.

Throw in: his attempt to ban ALL refugees, desire to bring back waterboarding, and repeated aggression toward American Muslims…this is absolutely NOT the person we want as our global ambassador.

Pompeo received 14 Democratic votes when he was confirmed as head of the CIA last year. We must work hard now to ensure not a single Democrat votes for Pompeo as Secretary of State, in addition to raising our voices to Republican senators.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand they oppose Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State. If they don’t, they’ll see our opposition to them during midterms.
