Pompeo reminds State Dept staff of America’s ‘essential rightness’ in world affairs

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has delivered a pep-talk to his State Department staff, urging them to regain their “swagger” and to believe in the “essential rightness” of the US in global affairs.

Pompeo said that American diplomats should act with confidence in carrying out the Trump administration’s foreign policy, safe in the knowledge that the US is always right. The event was closed to the press, but the department released excerpts of Pompeo’s remarks.

“Swagger is not arrogance; it is not boastfulness, it is not ego,” Pompeo said. “No, swagger is confidence; in one’s self, in one’s ideas. In our case, it is America’s essential rightness.”
