Trump Has Now Somehow Picked Someone Even Worse Than Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State

WASHINGTON - In response to Donald Trump replacing Rex Tillerson with Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State, Greenpeace USA Climate Director Naomi Ages said:

“Donald Trump has now somehow picked someone even worse than Rex Tillerson to run the State Department. Greenpeace has been opposed to Tillerson as Secretary of State from the moment he was nominated, and we continue to believe that the U.S. government cannot and should not be run by fossil fuel industry flunkies. Mike Pompeo, though, is uniquely unqualified to be Secretary of State in an entirely different way than Rex Tillerson was. In addition to being a climate denier, like his predecessor, Pompeo is Koch brothers' shill who will denigrate the United States’ reputation abroad and make us vulnerable to threats at home.”
