Amid growing rumors of a possible presidential run in 2024, Mike Pompeo is already earning criticism from both sides of the political spectrum.

The former Trump administration Secretary of State recently took to Twitter to express his concerns about the teaching of critical race theory, the academic movement begun in the 1970s, based on the idea racism is a social construct, not merely individual prejudice or bias.

Pompeo's Tweet read:

"If we teach that the founding of the United States of America was somehow flawed. It was corrupt. It was racist. That's really dangerous. It strikes at the very foundations of our country."

Not surprisingly, Pompeo's critics and political adversaries were quick to respond.

They reminded him the founding fathers were well aware of the "flaws" in the constitution.






Other users seriously questioned if Pompeo's statement even reflected true conservative or Christian ideals.

Even former colleagues.






Some also felt pointed out the questionable grammar in Pompeo's tweet.



Should Pompeo run for America's highest political office in 2024, he's already created quite the uphill battle.

For many, it begins with properly constructed sentences.
