Secretary of State Mike Pompeo talks about the presidential transition in an interview with FOX News host Bret Baier on Thursday.
BRET BAIER, FOX NEWS ANCHOR: Joining us now is secretary of state Mike Pompeo. MIKE POMPEO, U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE: Good to be back with you Bret. BAIER: The last time we talked you had just come off saying that the Trump administration would be into its second term essentially. You have come to the conclusion that this transition process is happening even as the legal challenges continue. Will you be right seat, left seating with the incoming team? POMPEO: Oh no. I remember when I was the incoming guy at the Central Intelligence Agency. The United States has one secretary of state at a time. There’ll be no right seat, left seat. We’ll have one secretary of state, one president for the duration. But those things that are required, that the president has directed us to do in compliance with the decision that the GSA made yesterday, we’ll do all of those things. It’s a legal requirement, and we’ll always honor that promise.
