Pompeo traveled to North Korea before his confirmation in his role as CIA director to conduct a meeting ahead of an expected summit between President Donald Trump and the North Korean leader. The shock meeting was revealed weeks later with Trump expressing optimism of the results of the meeting.

“They had a great meeting,” Trump said of the summit Thursday on Fox & Friends noting that he did not give up any concessions in exchange for the meeting. “This is a much more dangerous ballgame now, but I will tell you it’s going very well.”
