I'm either losing it or #SpeakWithAGeek "tech recruiting firm" is a huge hoax & so's their sexism in tech hiring study. #SWAG has a bunch of online presence, all starting ~3 yrs ago & ending 7 mos ago even tho they were "founded in 1999." 1/

Q: Mr. Secretary, nice to see you, sir.

POMPEO: Greta, it’s great to be with you.

Q: This is your second trip to Mexico, but why are you here now in Mexico?
POMPEO: So as the new government makes this transition beginning on December 1st, we’re working diligently to make sure we have a solid foreign policy relationship with them. So we certainly are working with the existing government. I’ll see President Pena Nieto in just a few
