Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo highlighted former President Donald Trump’s achievements in Israel on Sunday, claiming President Joe Biden is reversing the historic progress made during the previous administration.
The remarks were made during the Zionist Organization of America’s gala on Sunday where Pompeo served as a keynote speaker.
“I was proud to lead in the fight in the defense of Israel, the Jewish people, and the perennial cause of religious liberty,” he said. “You should know I’m going to continue to do so.”
“We can’t allow the current administration to reverse the historic change—the historic progress we brought to the Middle East,” declared former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. https://t.co/Tdyg4v93Jz

During Pompeo’s tenure, he served as the first acting Secretary of State to visit the Western Wall of Israel, among other achievements, such as moving the embassy to Jerusalem.
The strong speech showed Pompeo’s unwavering support of Israel, a contrast with changes among some in the current Biden administration.
