Secretary of state nominee Mike Pompeo continues to oppose marriage equality


Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo, who is President Donald Trump’s pick to be the nation’s next secretary of state, says that he still opposes marriage between same-sex couples.

Pompeo’s comments came during an exchange with Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who grilled the CIA director about comments in which the former congressman once suggested that gay sex was a “perversion.”

“You’re going to be representing this country and their values abroad in nations where gay individuals are under untold persecution, untold violence. Your views do matter,” the senator said.
