US President Donald Trump’s nominee as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described the United States as ‘unique and exception’ while declaring only the former applied to Russia during his confirmation hearing in Washington DC.

Pompeo was asked by US Senator Tim Kaine if regime change was a legitimate foreign policy goal for the US and whether other nations may be permitted to follow it as an objective if America can.

He responded by saying: “Russia behaves in ways that are deeply different from what we ever ought to contemplate.”

Pompeo was later confirmed as Secretary of State, succeeding Rex Tillerson who left his post at the end of March.
