Pompeo’s conservative allies growing increasingly upset as he pushes Trump’s protectionist agenda
On Tuesday, trade talks with China appeared to stall. The diplomatic standstill wreaked havoc on the stock market. And now, it appears that by promoting Trump’s position on trade, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is angering free trade proponents on the right.
CNBC reports that Pompeo has begun to frustrate conservatives who believe in open borders by seemingly embracing Trump’s anti-trade agenda. That in turn might complicate his chances if he runs for office.
