US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo avoided answering the question of whether he is worried by mail during his appearance in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee after President Donald Trump proposed the opportunity to run the presidential election because of the risk postpone a “fraud” in this form of voting.
Foreign diplomats and service members in the United States often cast their votes in the mail, and Pompeo has stated that he “believes” that he voted in the mail, “when he was a soldier” and “when he was a member of Congress” .
However, he made it clear that “a small group of people voting by post is very different from deciding that you are doing a full voting by post,” as reported by the CNN television station.
In addition, Pompeo declined to answer a question as to whether the State Department would accept the certified results of the U.S. presidential election, even if Trump didn’t. “I’m not going to speculate,” he decided.
