Last night, friends of Israel packed the Andrew Mellon Auditorium to celebrate the U.S.'s 71 years of friendship with Israel. In Israel, according to Ron Dermer (the Ambassador of Israel to the United States), "Independence Day is a time to be grateful for the rebirth of Jewish sovereignty in our homeland and to marvel at our country's remarkable achievements."
Secretary Mike Pompeo
Our amazing Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, gave remarks and I really enjoyed being up close to hear him talk. He is incredibly brilliant ... and I think the future President of the United States!
State Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus
I was so happy to run into Morgan Ortagus, the stunning and super smart new Spokesperson for the State Department. We have run in the same circles for as long as I have been in D.C. so it is nice to see someone so humble rise so high!
