US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo described Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar as “my friend” and “great diplomat” and said on Tuesday that the United States and India “have never been close”.
Pompeii wrote on Twitter, which relate to a speech he visited New Delhi in June 2019, that “the relationship between the United States and Asia’s most populous democracy is closer than ever, from trade to military cooperation and more.”
In that speech, he said: “We, India and America, must see the world as it is and see each other. Great democracy, world power, good friend. We have the ability to build new kinds of collaborations not just for us, but for the region and the world.”
He then tweeted to his Indian counterpart, “As my friend, with a great diplomat and leader, the US-India relationship has grown stronger,” adding a hashtag to the Atlanta rally of President Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Modi campaign slogans: #HowdyModi, #ModiHaitoMumkinHai.
Pompeo tweeted about foreign policy milestones such as talks with North Korea and the points of the Trump administration, and eventually did not make much, and defended the criticism that Russia was weak and harsh against European allies.
Some have described the tweet as a “soft launch” of running for the White House, but this seemed to be saying goodbye to the Secretary of State and cannot be confirmed officially. President Donald Trump has not admitted defeat and continues to falsely claim that he won the November election.
