"That reporter couldn't have done too good a job on you yesterday", Trump said to Pompeo, the chief United States diplomat, during a presentation of his Middle East proposal, prompting laughter from the crowd of officials and dignitaries gathered at the White House. "I don't think reporters should be treated that way, in any way, and I don't think presidents should say that it's a good thing to treat a reporter like that". "Think you did a good job on her, actually". "Are you running for Senate?" "We're all tempted to do that, but I like Mike Pompeo's views on the Middle East and that's what I'm supportive" of.
Following the interview, Kelly said Pompeo cursed at her and repeatedly "used the F-word" and asked her: "Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?" "You're doing a great job, don't move".

After the interview, Pompeo summoned Kelly to his private quarters in the state department and launched into a foul-mouthed tirade that she said lasted as long as the interview itself.
In a statement on Saturday, Pompeo said the reporter had lied in setting up the interview and in agreeing to conduct the post-interview conversation off the record. Kelly, who has a master's degree in European studies from Cambridge university and many years experience as a foreign correspondent, said she pointed to it right away.
"We respectfully ask the State Department to reconsider and allow Michele to travel on the plane for this trip", Tandon of SDCA said.
Trump asked Pompeo if he meant to run for a U.S. Senate seat in Kansas and added, "I guess the answer is 'no, ' after that".
