'Mike Pompeo has lost an incredible amount of weight,' media reporter Aaron Rupar commented on Twitter.

'That’s Mike Pompeo???' another incredulous Twitter user, William Legate, commented.

'Like, even his face is structurally different… that is some very serious surgery if that’s him is all I’ll say,' Legate added.

'You’re still not gonna be president, Mike,' commented another user, Brian Tyler Cohen.

In the days since Trump has left the White House, Pompeo has worked to keep his name in the Republican party and in the headlines making frequent media appearances, joining fundraising efforts and showing signs he is rekindling his old campaign committee.

Pompeo did not confirm or deny plans to run in an interview in July.

It's literally the case that only the Lord knows what's gonna happen,' he said on 'The Carlos Watson Show.'

'I want to continue to have an impact on the things that I care about, both here and abroad,' Pompeo said.

And in March, when asked  by Hannity about his ambitions, Pompeo said: 'I’m always up for a good fight.'

Hannity responded that he didn't 'know how to interpret that' and would 'take that as a strong maybe', Pompeo laughed, adding: 'That's perfect.'

The #1 Best Diet for a Flat Belly

  The #1 Best Diet for a Flat Belly If you want a lean midsection in no time, this is the very best diet for a flat belly, according to a registered dietitian.However, there's one goal practically everyone trying to lose weight has in common: getting a flat belly. While shaving off a few pounds can help reduce your risk of certain chronic ailments, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and fatty liver, losing inches off your waist may also lower your heart attack risk. In fact, a 2018 study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association found that waist-to-hip ratio was a better predictor of heart attack risk than BMI.

Republicans have been left in limbo as Trump regularly teases another run in 2024, as most have said they would not mount a challenge to the former president. If Pompeo launches a bid - and Trump does not - he could be campaigning against GOP heavyweights like former Vice President Mike Pence, former UN ambassador Nikki Haley,  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis or South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem.

Pompeo most especially hit out against Biden during the withdrawal from Afghanistan.

'At its very core, what the Biden administration fails to understand is there is a harsh reality out there, that there is evil and there is good,' he said while accepting an award at the Nixon Foundation earlier this week. 'And if you withdraw from Afghanistan without considering the ramifications and dealing with them and making sure the conditions are right, America will be diminished.'
