Senator Rand Paul reversed course and voted for the notoriously hawkish Mike Pompeo to become our next Secretary of State on Monday, after assurances that President Donald Trump intends to end the wars in Syria and Afghanistan as well as reform the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Sources close to the negotiations between Paul, President Trump and Pompeo have provided the Gateway Pundit with exclusive details of the deal to sway his vote.

Last week, Trump called Paul and assured him that he is the one who sets foreign policy — not his Secretary of State. The president explained that he still believes that regime changes, and Iraq, were mistakes.

The president informed Paul that he intends to be out of Syria and Afghanistan sooner, rather than later.

Since the call took place shortly after the Syria bombing, the senator and the president went back and forth about whether or not it was the right thing to do. Days before the bombing, Trump had vowed that he was going to be pulling troops out of the nation.

Trump assured Paul that it was a “one time thing to deter the use of chemical weapons and not an escalation or change of his declaration from the week before.” He was adamant that his vow to leave Syria stands.

On Thursday of last week, Paul and Pompeo met in the senator’s office in DC. The Secretary of State hopeful noted a number of issues that the two of them agree on, including foreign aid to Pakistan and Palestinians.

Pompeo also agreed with Paul that Libya was a terrible idea, and reminded the senator that he voted against it in the House.

“He said that regime change has had a negative impact on the region and should not be our goal,” a source close to the negotiation told the Gateway Pundit of the conversation.
