Mike Pompeo spent his Easter weekend in North Korea as Donald Trump's Central Intelligence Agency director, but it's nearly certain he will be leaving America's chair vacant at a major upcoming G7 meeting in Toronto.
Pompeo would have had a lot to bring to the table on that last topic, since Trump confirmed Wednesday that Pompeo paid a clandestine visit to North Korea nearly two weeks ago for talks with its leader Kim Jong Un.
Since that historic visit, the U.S. Senate foreign relations committee has been grilling Pompeo on his nomination to replace Rex Tillerson, who was sacked by Trump.
Mr Pompeo is predicted to be confirmed as the top United States diplomat by the Republican-controlled Senate in the coming weeks.
The news of his visit came after President Trump appeared to say he had met Mr Kim in remarks that were later clarified by White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders. So, from the Administration's perspective, the most important thing we can do is separate those two.

Critics, however, say Pompeo has tailored intelligence reports to please the president - rather than give him a straightforward picture of US security issues.
"The folks in Kansas don't think that was accountability", Pompeo said. "We're comfortable. We have great relationships, '" the president said, boosting the private club, which collects dues that enrich Trump.
However, Trump has been critical of the intelligence community in general (though not Pompeo) and the president has taken a less critical position on Russian Federation. The U.S. trade deficit with Japan a year ago was $56.1 billion, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce.
