Pompeo, from Wichita, Kansas, was first elected to Congress in 2010 and is a member of the House Intelligence and Benghazi Committees.

The Washington Post reported on Friday morning that Pompeo accepted the position.

The Kansas congressman's office confirmed Pompeo met with Trump in New York on Wednesday.

Pompeo is an outspoken critic of President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran.
