CNN Analyst Predicts President Trump Will Dump Pence for 2020 Ticket for This Former Governor
CNN political analyst and former Crossfire co-host Paul Begala made a very strong statement about President Trump, Vice President Pence, and the coronavirus.
He believes that President Trump will dump Mike Pence and put former U.N. Ambassador and former Governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley on the ticket.
Begala says that this isn’t just a random guess or a hunch. He believes that this is a certainty and that it is definitely going to happen. Here’s what Begala said…
“This is not a prediction. It’s a certainty. On Thursday, July 16 — that’s the date the Democrat gives his or her acceptance address — on that day, to interrupt that narrative, Donald Trump will call a press conference at Mar-a-Lago. He’s going to dump Mike Pence and put Nikki Haley on the ticket to try to get those suburban moms.“
“You watch. Guaranteed,” Begala continued. “Trump put Pence in charge of coronavirus to throw him under the bus.”
I’m going to strongly disagree with this “certainty”. Mike Pence and Donald Trump are the winning ticket. I always say, “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” This duo is not broken and I think that to take Pence out of the equation and insert Nikki Haley would be a misstep going into crunch time.
According to The Hill,
Haley, who was nominated by Trump to serve as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and was confirmed with a 96-4 vote in January 2017, has staunchly denied speculation she could replace Pence on the GOP ticket.
“The vice president and the president are a great ticket together,” Haley told “Fox & Friends” in November. “They’re solid. Solid enough that they’re going to win together. There is no truth whatsoever that I would ever in any way look to get that position. I think Mike is great for that job and I think that he’s the right partner for the president.”
“Mike Pence is a great vice president,” Trump said in November, while noting Haley would “absolutely” be involved in his 2020 campaign.
“She is a friend of mine, she endorsed me with the most beautiful endorsement you’ve ever heard. She did a great job at the U.N.,” Trump added of Haley.
