It looks like Trump is getting a bit nervous concerning his impending 2020 run for reelection — and he has good reason to be. Even most Staunch Trump supports will tell you that Donnie hasn’t exactly made good on his promises. Perhaps his biggest campaign promise was the border wall between the US and Mexico — a wall that he promised his supporters Mexico would be footing the bill for. Yet, here we are, already having suffered through the longest government shutdown in history, with no wall in sight, and our president declaring a national emergency to force the country to pay for his wall whether we want to or not.
And the promise of the”free” wall is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Dozens and dozens of his campaign promises are going unfulfilled, causing even his followers to question his competency for this gig. To say the least, Trump is in a slump, and he’s grasping at straws in an attempt to smooth things over and secure his bid for president once again — at least in his own head.
From the looks of things, he’s going to start by replacing his vice president. For starters, Trump hasn’t always thought highly of the dude after he made a disapproving comment about Trump’s genital grabbing statement on Access Hollywood. Since then, Trump has questioned Pence’s loyalty so much that many of his advisors are getting a bit nervous.
And now, in addition to watching his chances swirl down the toilet, Trump definitely can’t ignore all of the women in power that are actively rallying against him. His solution to this problem? Find a woman for himself.
In an interview with Chris Matthews last night, Washington Post reporter Jennifer Rubin laid out what she expected from Trump’s impending campaign for 2020 reelection. And she thinks Nikki Haley is going to be a forerunner for Trump’s replacement VP.
One thing — talking about the ‘vortex’ — I bet he’s going to dump Mike Pence this year. Depends where he is in the polls and when the Mueller report comes out [whether it’s this year or next]. And he needs a woman, and he needs everyone to be buzzing about him.”
Haley previously served as the US ambassador to the United Nations but resigned in 2018. Since then, there’s been heavy speculation that she’d run for president in 2020, as she seems to be on the path for a political position of higher power. But Rubin, as well as others, seem to believe that Trump will try to scoop her up and drag her down with him in attempt to have something, anything, that’s comparable to his competition.
We’re not sure if it’s going to work. But we can say, America has had enough of Donald Trump’s shit — we don’t think a woman is going to save him.
