Book summary of Never Give an Inch by Mike Pompeo

In his memoir, Mike Pompeo, the former U.S. Secretary of State, shares his experiences and insights from his time in public service. From his upbringing in southern California to his time at West Point and Harvard Law School, Pompeo recounts how his background influenced his worldview and his approach to leadership. Pompeo's career took him from the Army to Congress, and eventually to the CIA, where he served as director under President Trump. He became Secretary of State in 2018, serving until the end of the Trump administration. Throughout his time in public service, Pompeo remained committed to advancing American interests and protecting American values. One of Pompeo's primary goals as Secretary of State was to counter China's global ambitions. He saw China as a strategic competitor to the U.S. and worked to build alliances with countries in the region to contain China's influence. He also sought to address China's human rights abuses and intellectual property theft. Another major issue Pompeo faced as Secretary of State was North Korea's nuclear program. He played a key role in negotiating the historic summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in 2018. While the summit ultimately did not lead to a breakthrough on denuclearization, Pompeo remains optimistic that a diplomatic solution is possible. Pompeo was also a strong advocate for Israel during his time as Secretary of State. He oversaw the relocation of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a move that was widely criticized by many in the international community. He also supported the Trump administration's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, which he saw as a flawed agreement that would not prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Throughout his time in public service, Pompeo remained committed to his conservative Christian values. He believed that faith played an important role in shaping his worldview and his approach to leadership. He also saw the promotion of religious freedom as a key component of American foreign policy. Pompeo faced many challenges during his tenure as Secretary of State, from contentious negotiations with foreign leaders to criticism from the media and political opponents. He remained steadfast in his commitment to advancing American interests and protecting American values, however, and he continues to be an influential voice in American politics.
