The real reason Pompeo's last trip was cancelled

Luxembourg, EU snub Pompeo in final Europe trip, diplomats say

BRUSSELS/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cancelled his Europe trip at the last minute on Tuesday after Luxembourg’s foreign minister and top European Union officials declined to meet him, European diplomats and other people familiar with the matter said.


Pompeo had originally planned to go to Luxembourg, but that leg of the trip was scrapped, one diplomatic source said, after officials there showed reluctance to grant him appointments. The Brussels leg was still on until the last minute.

But Pompeo’s final visit schedule in Brussels was not going to involve any meetings with the EU or any public events at NATO. A third diplomatic source said allies were “embarrassed” by Pompeo after the violence in Washington last Wednesday.

**** So he is an embarrassment abroad.... take that, you loser and sycophant to a madman!

1. So we don't have to pay for his last minute European vacay!

Plus, let's keep that in our little file for when he tries to run for POTUS in '24.
