Mike Pompeo: There are 'significant national security concerns' about Trump endorsed Senate candidate Dr. Oz
Former President Donald Trump endorsed celebrity TV doctor Mehmet Oz for the United States Senate -- but now one of Trump's own top cabinet officials is trying to undercut his chances of winning.

Via Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, former Trump Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday announced he'd be giving a press briefing related to "significant national security concerns" related to Oz's candidacy.

In particular, Pompeo says he will focus on "unanswered questions on Mehmet Oz's close ties to the Turkish government and military."

Oz, who was born in Ohio as the son of first-generation Turkish immigrants, maintains dual citizenship between the United States and Turkey, and even spent two years in the Turkish military.

What's more, Oz voted in the 2018 Turkish presidential election, even though he insisted that he has "never been politically involved in Turkey in any capacity."

Attorney John V. Berry, who has expertise in security clearance procedures, told ABC that "the decision to vote in a foreign country's election is problematic from a security clearance perspective."

Trump's endorsement of Oz rankled many of his own supporters, as they saw him as insufficiently committed to Trump's "America First" agenda.

Why has Pompeo not had a problem with Israeli dual citizens controlling our intelligence agencies and the pentagon?

Trump nominated Pompeo first as CIA director and then Secretary of State, confirmed unanimously by Senate Republicans.

How did Trump manage to get these types of things wrong so many times? I thought he was a 5D chess master with an IQ of the highest caliber in the universe? Only the best, seems to have been always the worst.

What gives?

When you're not a government lifer, you have to rely on assessments of people who you think you can trust.

Trump figured out too late that those closest to him were indeed his enemies.

He was too naive and believed he could just deal his way through everything.

They don't want deals, they want us dead.

Have you ever hired people? I have and I hired a lot of people. The company I worked for was considered the best in its industry and the office I worked from was the top office. My retention rate was vastly superior to the other offices and oftentimes I would differ in my evaluation of a potential hire from my colleagues - they often did not see the downsides that I did. So although I am analytical, I would say that hiring was more of an intuitive process, more of an art than a science and although I was very good at it, I loathed it.

So to summarize, very few people see the negatives about others when hiring unless perhaps they are a cynic. So no, Trump was not necessarily bad at hiring.

Although I spoke of this process as if I have an ego, I really do not and if possible I would live from now until I am dead without ever seeing or speaking with another person. I have nothing to prove to anyone and I prefer not to interact with anyone, that way I will not have a chance to do them wrong in their eyes. Fair enough?

There is no question that Trump is full of himself and considers himself the father of the vax as an ego boost. Just because he has a big ego does not make him a net negative person though because I have met several people like that who were above average in their generosity and kindness.
