Trump searching for possible Pompeo successor – media
More speculation concerning the future for U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo comes with an op-ed published by the Washington Post.
But building on previous reports, the article claims U.S. President Donald Trump is already searching for his next Secretary of State, indicating a possible Pompeo senate run.
Rumors that Pompeo could step down from his role as Secretary of State to run for the soon-to-be-vacant Senate seat of retiring Pat Roberts have been circulating for months.
The Washington Post article lists several potential replacements as Secretary of State, including National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien or Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
Pompeo has denied the rumors, saying he will continue serving in the Trump Administration as long as the president will have him.
