Washington (CNN)Secretary of State Mike Pompeo canceled a trip to Europe this week after being snubbed by officials in Luxembourg in the wake of the deadly assault on the US Capitol, according to two State Department officials familiar with the planning.

State Department sources told CNN that officials in Luxembourg canceled planned meetings with Pompeo prior to Monday's trip announcement, but that the trip in its entirety was not turning out the way that Pompeo and his team had envisioned, particularly given the criticism that President Donald Trump has faced from world leaders after the Capitol invasion.

"There is not a whole lot you can do as the secretary of state when there are just days left, the President is being impeached and the world is watching in horror," said one State Department official familiar with the planning and cancellation of the trip.
