Donald Trump is assembling a war cabinet.
Trump has already selected Iraq-war architect John Bolton to be his new National Security Adviser. And he has nominated uber-hawk Mike Pompeo to become America’s next Secretary of State. Bolton and Pompeo have both openly lobbied Trump to kill the Iran deal and called for bombing Iran.
We can block Pompeo from becoming Secretary of State and ensure Trump is unable to build his war cabinet.
Mike Pompeo’s nomination is subject to a Congressional vote – and it is already in jeopardy. Republican Rand Paul has announced he will vote against him, stating that he cannot endorse “people who loved the Iraq War so much that they want an Iran War next.”
We are within reach of securing enough votes to defeat Pompeo’s nomination and deliver a crucial blow to Trump and Bolton’s plans for Iran.
But we need other Senators to come out now against Pompeo. Take action and demand the Senate reject warhawk Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State and help block Trump from assembling his war cabinet!

“Hi, I’m a constituent and would like to urge the Senator to stop Pompeo’s nomination for Secretary of State. A vote for Pompeo is a vote to kill the Iran deal and set the stage for war. Will the Senator oppose Pompeo’s nomination?”
