US secretary of state: Pompeo to face Senate confirmation hearing

If confirmed, some say Mike Pompeo will eagerly embrace President Donald Trump's 'America First' approach to foreign policy.

    US President Donald Trump's choice for the next secretary of state will begin his confirmation hearing later on Thursday.

    Mike Pompeo is currently the director of the CIA.

    President Trump selected him to replace Rex Tillerson, who was fired last month.

    Al Jazeera's Rosiland Jordon reports from Washington, DC.
