Who Is Susan Pompeo?

A Beacon of Support for Her Husband
Mike has always had ties to politics and as a Republican, he ran for House of Representatives back in 2010. His wife has always been by his side and has even said how much she enjoyed campaigning—possibly more than her husband did!
“We decided we would do this together,” Susan told Wichita Magazine via Heavy. “We set out to do this like we would do any venture. I loved the campaigning part of it, much more than Mike did. We’ve laughed many times because there is no manual to tell you step-by-step how to do this, not even how to transition.”
Susan has also appeared in her husband’s campaign ads. She compared him to a pair of his old army boots, saying that he was “tough, durable and working step by step until the mission was done.” (Well, when you put it that way, it doesn’t sound so bad!)
Her Husband’s Secretary of State Nomination
The White House is becoming more known by many for its lack of job security and with the current secretary of state on his way out, it’s time for some fresh meat. According to CNN, Trump endorsed the CIA director and strongly believes they are on the same page.
“I have worked with Mike Pompeo for quite some time, tremendous energy, tremendous intellect,” Trump told reporters. “We are always on the same wavelength. The relationship has always been good and that is what I need as secretary of state.”
Over the years, Mike has grown close to the president and continues to send him classified briefings and updates, four times a week, in fact! Mike also praised the president for his ability process the briefings and other intelligence handed to him.
Trump took to Twitter to make the unofficial announcement and wrote that the secretary of state nominee was the perfect replacement. With the way things are going, the length of his new potential position is unknown but we know that Susan will be right beside him every single step of the way!
