Statement by U.S. Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo| site |

(January 25, 2020) - - Today (January 25, 2020), the U.S. Department of State published the following Press Statement that it indicated is by Michael R. Pompeo, Secretary of State:

NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly lied to me, twice. First, last month, in setting up our interview and, then again yesterday, in agreeing to have our post-interview conversation off the record. It is shameful that this reporter chose to violate the basic rules of journalism and decency. This is another example of how unhinged the media has become in its quest to hurt President Trump and this Administration. It is no wonder that the American people distrust many in the media when they so consistently demonstrate their agenda and their absence of integrity.

It is worth noting that Bangladesh is NOT Ukraine.
