President Trump, on his first visit to the State Department, participated in the swearing-in ceremony for Mike Pompeo on Wednesday.

What to expect: Pompeo is inheriting a host of pressing diplomatic issues at State. Among them include the imminent withdrawal of the U.S. from the Iran nuclear deal and preparation for a meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
