Evidently, the Trump administration is big mad at former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley after she seemingly perpetuated the rumor that there was even a possibility of her taking the place of Trump’s current Vice President, Mike Pence in the 2020 election.
Recently Haley took to her Twitter account and attempted to insert herself into the rumors of a possible Vice President replacement stating, “Enough of the false rumors. Vice President Pence has been a dear friend of mine for years. He has been a loyal and trustworthy VP to the President. He has my complete support.”
And the White House was none too happy about this — most likely because they don’t want to disturb the united front of bigotry and racism that Trump and Pence have got going on.
And honestly, while there were a few unsubstantiated social media rumors floating around for a bit, neither the White House nor anyone in an official Trump capacity has supposedly ever mentioned a mere whisper of even a chance of a VP replacement. But, you know, it’s just like a Republican — to insert themselves wherever they don’t belong at any given opportunity. And they want to keep it that way.
It seems that, while the rumors are definitely false, Haley’s announcement planted a seed of concern with Trump administration officials in regards to what the former aide has up her sleeve after resigning from her position as permanent representative to the United Nations last year.
“The only person talking about Nikki Haley as VP is Nikki Haley herself,” one senior administration official responded.
Donald Trump himself confirmed that the Trump/Pence train of hatred and racism would continue to chug right along into the 2020 race when he recently stated, “I think Mike Pence has been an outstanding VP. I think that he’s been incredible in terms of the love that a lot of people, especially if you look at the evangelicals and so many others, they really have a great respect for our vice president. And so do I.”
Sorry, Nikki. You just can’t compete with that level of conniving bullshit.
