With one day left in his tenure, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took to his taxpayer-funded Twitter account and denounced multiculturalism, saying it is "not who America is."

Washington (CNN)With one day left in his tenure, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took to his taxpayer-funded Twitter account and denounced multiculturalism, saying it is "not who America is. "

Career diplomat Conrad Tribble said on Twitter that multiculturalism "is one of our greatest strengths as a country, and I go to that well often as an American diplomat.

The Association of Black American Ambassadors, where Ray serves as communications director, said in a statement Tuesday that "while it was disheartening to read outgoing Secretary of State Pompeo's tweet, we are pleased to note that Secretary-designate Blinken, in his statement for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has expressed his 'commitment to having a diplomatic corps that fully represents America in all our diversity . . .

"

In a July 2020 unveiling of a report from his "Commission on Unalienable Rights" that purported that "more rights does not necessarily mean more justice," Pompeo fanned flames of division stoked by Trump, warning that "the very core of what it means to be an American, indeed the American way of life itself, is under attack" amid nationwide protests for racial justice and against police brutality.
