Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was mocked on-line after he was snubbed by European diplomats who’ve reportedly refused to fulfill with him attributable to final week’s violent assault on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump.
The snub prompted Pompeo to cancel a deliberate journey to Europe this week.
Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn slammed Trump as a “criminal” and a “political pyromaniac who must be brought before a court” in a radio interview with RTL.
Reuters reported that Asselborn, in addition to different European Union figures, had all declined to fulfill with Pompeo through the deliberate two-day journey. One diplomatic supply advised the information company that allies have been “embarrassed” by Pompeo after final week’s violence in Washington.
And Pompeo’s critics on Twitter are questioning what occurred to his self-described “swagger.”
Pompeo has repeatedly boasted of “swagger,” even reportedly calling the company the “Department of Swagger.” Earlier this month, he launched a boastful Twitter thread utilizing his personal made-up definition of “swagger” to pat himself on the again.
Now, with the U.S. status a shambles and key allies rejecting even a easy meet-and-greet, Pompeo’s critics are asking him the place the “swagger” went:
So a lot for “swagger”
