“I had the opportunity to speak with the president for a while today and I think he spoke with his entire national security team today,” he said.
“This is a team that is mature and capable. We are fully prepared for all that is to come. We had a good conversation. I’m not going to say what it’s going to do. But we made sure that the president was in control of everything that happened around the world. Got a little extra guidance for this trip, now I’m looking forward to it, “Pompeo said.
