The invasion of the Capitol by pro – Trump bandits has started exacting diplomatic tolls on the American nationalism, with the refusal of top European officials to meet with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, leading to the cancelation of his planned diplomatic trip.
In what appears to be the latest and among the most profound backlashes to the Trump administration after the assault on the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday, Pompeo harvested an appropriate rebuff as a chieftain of Trump’ belligerent refusal to acknowledge President-elect Biden’s triumph at the November poll.
That trip would have been his last shuttle as a top American diplomat, included visits to Luxembourg and Brussels to meet with top European Union officials; as well as a dinner scheduled with NATO
secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg.
But those officials have called off the meetings after the Capitol riot.
