Pompeo To Visit Jamaica Next Week..


United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be in Jamaica on a two-day working visit, beginning next Tuesday.

He is due to arrive on January 21, when he will have meetings with Prime Minister Andrew Holness and several other Caribbean leaders.

He is expected to discuss a range of matters, including the recent flare-up in the Middle East and outstanding issues pertaining to Venezuela.

His visit comes almost a year after Holness and four other Caribbean leaders flew to Mar-a-Lago Estate to meet with President Donald Trump.

Trump dangled investment opportunities to the Caribbean leaders who had voted against the Maduro regime in an Organization of American States forum. Trump promised to send a high-level delegation from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the US development lender, to visit each nation within a 90-day period.

When pressed yesterday, the United States Embassy in Kingston said it was unable to confirm the visit.

2. I was thinking along the same line...at least some kind of money deal for Trump.

And, there is Venezuela, again. Why do I smell Russia?

There must have been a lot going on at Mar-A-Lago over the holidays.

I thought there was an investigation, but you know how that goes with the Repukes in control.

8. I'm wondering if much like Mulvaney said, they do this all the time

The only ones they don't Quid Pro Quo, are likely the ones that won't take part in the corruption of the Trump administration.
