Mike Pompeo served as U.S. Secretary of State from April 2018 through January 2021. From January 2017 to April 2018, he was Director of the CIA.

As America’s top diplomat, Pompeo helped craft a foreign policy that put America first. The U.S. became a massive energy exporter and a force for good in the Middle East, cementing real peace through the Abraham Accords. He also emphasized renewing alliances with key allies, including India, Japan, Australia and South Korea.

His time at the State Department marked the end of naive engagement with the Chinese Communist Party.

Before joining the Trump administration, Pompeo was serving his fourth term as congressman from Kansas’ 4th District.

After graduating first in his class at the United States Military Academy in 1986, Pompeo served as a cavalry officer patrolling the Iron Curtain before the fall of the Berlin Wall. He also served with the 2nd Squadron, 7th Cavalry in the U.S. Army’s Fourth Infantry Division.

Upon completing his active duty, Pompeo graduated from Harvard Law School. He worked at Williams & Connolly following law school graduation, and then had a successful career in business before entering government service.
