VOA reporter demoted after asking Pompeo if he regrets saying Trump would have a second term

Source: The Hill

Voice of America's (VOA) White House reporter has been reassigned after asking Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday if he regretted saying President Trump would begin a second term in January.

Pompeo ignored questions from VOA reporter Patsy Widakuswara after his speech criticizing the government-funded outlet's reporting on the state of America. Widakuswara asked Pompeo about what he was doing to help fix the country's reputation and if he regretted saying Trump would have a second term after the election was called for President-elect Joe Biden in November.

Widakuswara was later taken off the White House beat by VOA Director Robert Reilly, The Washington Post reported.

The move sparked backlash among fellow journalists.

1. Let's hope other journalists ask him again. On camera.

3. That's it!

Keep the pressure on! He'll probably just hide like BunkerBoy is doing. Besides, he only has 1 week to go.

2. Well, fortunately it'll probably only be for 8 days. Pompeo is so oily I feel like

I need to take a shower every time I see him.

4. End of the road for Pompeo. He needs a solitary job in which he is

isolated from the public and co-workers. Maybe the guy who cleans the strainers at the water treatment plant, in a small town.
