Fox News' Chris Wallace has arguably become the conservative-leaning news network's most prominent Trump skeptic since Shepard Smith's unexpected departure.

Wallace's cynicism appeared again in an interview with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Fox News Sunday, where Wallace asked if America's enemies consider Trump vulnerable due to the predictable criticism he received from Democrats.

Pompeo's reply will go down as one of the wittiest in political history:

"You should ask Mr. Soleimani," he said.

Per Western Journal:

The questioning came as part of a broader segment in which Wallace asked Pompeo whether the Iranian regime had become more bellicose under the Trump administration.

It began as the news came in that Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi, currently leading a caretaker government after resigning the post due to months of protests, called upon U.S. troops to leave the country and termed the drone strike that killed Soleimani and another Iranian-backed official as “assassinations.”

“The American people should know that President Trump will never shy away from protecting America, that’s what we’ve done over these past weeks and days,” Pompeo said.

“That’s what we’ve done over our entire three years with our Middle East strategy. The activity you’re seeing today is fully consistent with that.”
