U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Linda Thomas-Greenfield rebuking the Constitution as having underpinnings of “white supremacy” is “reprehensible” and “disqualifying” for an American diplomat to hold anti-American sentiment, according to former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
“America is a noble place,” Pompeo told Sunday’s “The Cats Roundtable” on WABC 770 AM-N.Y. “I heard our ambassador to the United Nations this week talk about our founding as fundamentally corrupt and flawed and not noble and good. I couldn’t disagree more.”
Pompeo was responding to Thomas-Greenfield saying, “the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents.”
“Quite frankly, I think it’s disqualifying to have a UN ambassador who expresses a moral relativism and doesn’t understand the exceptional nature of the country in which we all live,” Pompeo told host John Catsimatidis.
American exceptionalism is not a racist, nationalist, nor “not a partisan issue” either, Pompeo noted, particularly as masses of migrants rush to come to America.
“You see people wanting to immigrate here,” he said. “You see people attracted to this shining city on the hill. To have our American ambassador to the United Nations denigrate the founding principles of the United States and America the way that she did this week is truly reprehensible, and, in my view, if she truly believes that, she ought to resign and allow someone who believes in the greatness of America to take her place.”
