PLANO, Texas — Pastor Jack Graham, who has prayed and spent time with CIA Director Mike Pompeo, issues the following statement in light of his nomination to replace Rex Tillerson as secretary of state:
“Knowing Director Mike Pompeo and the strength of his faith and character and his unparalleled intellect, I’m thrilled to hear he has been nominated for secretary of state. I can think of few leaders who are not only qualified for the position but who also possess the moral courage to lead in a time when there are so many opportunities to pursue peace and to resolve some of the world’s most persistent conflicts. Director Pompeo will likely prove to be the most competent, principled and effective secretary of state in modern memory, and America will be better for it.”
