Rice: Pompeo’s RNC Speech from Jerusalem ‘Outrageous’

August 26, 2020

Tuesday on MSNBC, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice called SecState Mike Pompeo’s RNC address from Jerusalem “absolutely outrageous.”

“Secretaries of state are supposed to honor the principle that politics end at the water’s edge. When you go overseas, as secretary or a junior foreign service officer, you’re representing the country, not a political party. What Mike Pompeo is doing from Jerusalem is absolutely outrageous. It’s an abuse of his office. It undermines the integrity of the State Department…”

Rice added, “Mike Pompeo has been an overtly religious secretary of state, which in itself is problematic, because, again, he’s supposed to represent all of America, all of our religions, all of our threads but he takes this to Jerusalem. And the real import of that is that it places Israel yet again under President Trump squarely in our domestic politics, which is not good for the United States, and it is not good for Israel.”

The real reason Rice is outraged is because she and her fellow Democrats are devoutly anti-Israel.
