U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo congratulated several foreign leaders on their recent election victory and praised them for accepting the “democratic process” “admirably”, prompting many Americans to question the United States in November. The situation of the general election.
According to the report, Pompeo praised the Pacific island country Palau on the 21st. Like the United States, Palau held presidential and legislative elections on November 3. But Pompeo seemed to reject the results of the U.S. election on the 10th, and in a speech to the State Department, he said: “We will make a smooth transition to the second Trump administration.”
Critics say Pompeo, who disdains the results of democratic elections at home, joins other Trump administration officials in pushing for elections abroad, exposing the hypocrisy of the United States and the decline in American integrity overseas.
Pompeo tweeted on the 21st: “It is my pleasure to congratulate Sarangel Whipples on his election as the 10th President of the Republic of Palau, and to congratulate the people of Palau on their democratic process.” The State Department’s website also said: “We also congratulate the people of the Republic of Palau on their admirable adherence to this democratic process.”
The report noted that the comment immediately drew disdain from some Americans who questioned whether Pompeo had recently visited his country and whether he planned to congratulate Biden before congratulating the recently elected foreign leader.
One of the most read tweet responses on the 21st morning read: “But you are not very interested in the election in the United States, are you? What about the United States?”
“At the same time, Trump’s Secretary of State continues to ignore the results of free and fair elections in the United States and undermine the transition process,” said Christopher Miller, a correspondent for the U.S. “buzzfeed” news website. Earlier this month, Miller wrote: “Pompeo likes to preach peaceful power transfer – when the power transfer occurs in other countries.”
