Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is confident President Trump will win re-election, despite what the polls and mainstream media tell us.
A reporter asked Pompeo on Tuesday if the State Department was ready to work with the Biden transition team, and if they were not prepared to do so, could a lack of “smooth transition” be considered a “national security risk.”
The Secretary of State replied: “There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration.”
He continued, “We’re ready. The world is watching what’s taking place here. We’re going to count all the votes. When the process is complete, there will be electors selected. There’s a process. The Constitution lays it out pretty clearly.”
Pompeo said the world should have “every confidence that the transition necessary to make sure that the State Department is functional today, successful today, and successful with the president who’s in Office on Jan. 20th a minute after noon will also be successful.”
Pompeo explained he has been through a transition in the past, and he has full confidence that national security will not be compromised, reports Breitbart.
“I’m very confident that we will do all the things that are necessary to make sure that the government—the United States government—will continue to perform its national security function as we go forward.”
Pompeo replied to whether he believes “widespread voter fraud” has occurred during the election.
“I’m the secretary of State. I’m getting calls from all across the world. These people are watching our election. They understand that we have a legal process. They understand that this takes time, right? It took us 37 plus days in an election back in 2000. We conducted a successful transition then,” he said.
“I’m very confident that we will count, and we must count every legal vote. We must make sure that any vote that wasn’t lawful ought not be counted. That dilutes your vote if it’s done improperly. We’ve got to get that right. When we get it right, we’ll get it right. We’re in good shape,” Pompeo said.
