US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the assassination of Qasem Soleimani and newfound energy self-sufficiency during a speech in Florida on Thursday. Pompeo justified the assassination of the Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani who was «continuing to plot against America,» and described him as a «really bad guy» who «killed over 600 Americans.» The secretary of state praised the Ukrainian president, whom he is set to meet with next week in Kiev, as he «stood against Russian tyranny and delivered defensive weapon systems to the Ukrainian people so they could defend their own freedom.» And finally, Pompeo praised the US energy policy: «President Trump freed energy resources all across great places like Kansas and Texas, and we no longer now have to rely on oil that comes from dangerous places in the world.» Pompeo's speech coincided with Trump's visit to Miami to attend the Republican National Committee meeting. The speech was an official event, yet, it was widely promoted by groups supporting Trump's 2020 re-election efforts.
