Secretary of State Mike Pompeo addressed CPAC on Friday afternoon and made it clear that America is no longer leading from behind.
Pompeo said the Trump foreign policy has always set clear expectations of what it means to be on America’s side.
Pompeo noted “The critics said we would never defeat the Islamic State, but now the caliphate is gone.
“They said Mexico and Canada would never agree to renegotiate NAFTA, but they did.
“They said we would never rescind the fatally flawed Iran deal, and not only did the President do it, but it is now regarded as one of his greatest successes.
“”They ridiculed Trump’s demands at NATO but the result is a record increase in allied defense spending.
“They said Trump was wrong to reverse Obama’s policy and to provide Ukraine with weapons, including javelin missiles. The result has been a peace treaty.
“They said taking out Qassem Soleimani would lead to WW III, but it’s actually made the world safer.
“In addition to Soleimani, we are ridding the world of demonic, evil people such as ISIS’s Al-Baghdadi, Hamsa bin Laden, and the leader of al Qaeda in Yemen.
“Our mission is to keep Americans safe and secure. I am frequently challenged by people who oppose America’s foreign policy.
“Friend or foe, they all know President Trump means business, and that America is a force for good.”
