Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, freshly stripped of his powers as the nation’s top diplomat after the Biden administration officially took over on Wednesday, appears to be counting down until Election Day 2024.

“1,384 days,” he tweeted early Thursday, the first full day of the Biden presidency. The countdown appeared to refer to the Election Day four years into the future, when Biden approaches the end of his first term as president.

The former top State Department official’s partisan comments come after he had gained a reputation for politicizing the agency in the Trump administration, and repeatedly made comments that reflected a refusal to uphold its commitment to nonpartisanship.

Pompeo had also delivered a bitter parting message on Tuesday, declaring a day before the nation welcomed President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris — the first Black and Asian-American woman to serve in that role — that multiculturalism “is not what America is.”

Pompeo is rumored to be considering a possible 2024 presidential run, but the former State Department chief was quickly mocked for the remarks by those doubting his chances on Twitter:
