Senator Joe Manchin (D – W.Va) has broken with his party’s line and will be the second Democrat to vote to confirm Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State.
Manchin tweeted, “After meeting with Mike Pompeo, discussing his foreign policy perspectives, & considering his distinguished time as CIA Director & his exemplary career in public service, I will vote to confirm Mike Pompeo to be our next Secretary of State.”
Pompeo likely has the votes to be confirmed, but Manchin’s vote is helpful considering Rand Paul will be voting “no.”
On Monday, President Trump called out the “Obstructionist” Democrats.
Trump tweeted, “Hard to believe Obstructionists May vote against Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State. The Dems will not approve hundreds of good people, including the Ambassador to Germany. They are maxing out the time on approval process for all, never happened before. Need more Republicans!”
It’s time for the Democrats to stop their crying and whining and jump on the Trump train!
