Pompeo and Trump Have Lost Some Major Pounds

Recent pictures of Trump’s former US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, have set Twitter ablaze. Pompeo, who was a bit on the heavier side during his time as Secretary of State, has lost some major pounds. Reportedly, 90lbs to be exact. According to Pompeo, one day he stepped on the scale and was shocked to see he was close to 300lbs.

After coming to the realization that he was almost 300lbs, Pompeo decided enough is enough. That is when he started his weight loss journey. The next day, Mike started on a strict diet and coupled that with a workout plan that took place 6 days a week.

Take a look at a picture of his before and after:

Pompeo received a lot of encouraging messages on Twitter, however, there were also hundreds of trolls that came up with claims that stated he had cancer. Some conservatives speculated that Pompeo is shedding major pounds because he’s eyeing to run for president in 2024.

In his interview with the New York Post Pompeo shot down any hint at running for office in 2024, but instead stated:

“The truth is, I’m really getting ready for 2044 and hoping I’ll be around in 2054. For me it’s about getting it right and being sufficiently disciplined.

“For our family, food is where we gather. We are Italian and we like to get together around a good meal of pasta and bread and cheeses and dessert. We are still going to enjoy these big meals with family and friends except I am going to be the guy that says, ‘Yeah, I’ll have a salad.”

“It was a virtuous cycle instead of the vicious one that I had been in, and I’ve managed to lose the high side of 90 pounds in six months.”

The former Secretary of State seems to not be the only one that has lost weight. President Trump is also looking healthier since leaving the White House. Several pictures of Trump with visitors at Mar-a-Lago show Trump in tip-top shape. Advisors that are close with Trump have stated that the 45th President has cut out McDonald’s and other high-fat foods, which has resulted in weight loss.

Take a look at Trump now:

Just in case you think it’s just a camera angle that is making him look thinner, here’s another photo:

It’s great to see Trump taking care of his health because if he’s going to run in 2024, he must be in the best shape of his life. Trump is currently 75 years old whereas Biden is 79 years old. If Trump can continue to take care of his body then he could be the leader of the Republican party for years to come.

It has been rumored that Trump will select P0mpeo as his Vice President in 2024. Pompeo was selected by Trump in 2016 to be the director of the CIA, and after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was dismissed, Pompeo was selected to fill his shoes. If Trump promoted Pompeo twice, it’s quite possible that he could get promoted a third time, this time it being the biggest promotion of his career.
