predecessor rex tillerson and to listen strained relationship with the president. well what we're seeing you know with with mike pompei oh somebody who is is much more hawkish than what we saw with rex tillerson rex tillerson was a moderating voice within the administration and he was at odds with the president on a lot of issues including iran. pompei always in the military when he was in congress he was very very critical of the deal although during his confirmation hearing he said that he would be open to try to keep the u.s. in the deal but now that he's there he does have the president's ear they are they do sort of walk in lockstep with each other so you would expect that you don't have this moderating voice like you had before with rex tillerson and he may be more of
