Trump allies fear that both Pence and Nikki Haley will backstab him — and run against him in 2020: report

Published

Allies of President Donald Trump are reportedly worried about Vice President Mike Pence and United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley getting too close, as they fear they could backstab the president ahead of his 2020 reelection bid.

A New York Times report claims that “Republicans close to the White House” are whispering “about the prospect of an alliance between Haley and Vice President Mike Pence, possibly to run as a ticket in 2020.” Times reporter Maggie Haberman similarly writes on Twitter that “the prospect of a Pence-Haley political alliance raised ire of people close to Trump.”

What has spooked Trump allies, according to the report, was Pence’s recent decision to hire longtime Trump critic Jon Lerner as his own national security adviser — a move that Trump angrily squashed after he learned that Lerner had made anti-Trump ads on behalf of the right-wing Club for Growth during the 2016 Republican primaries.

Haley, meanwhile, has been openly feuding with the White House after she said on Sunday that there would be additional sanctions levied against Russia — only to be shot down by Trump one day after her announcement.

“This office has been abused and damaged in profound ways,” said Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA). “I personally would be for holding him accountable for every bit of it. Not for every grievance we have — I wouldn't include his bad behavior or his offensive rhetoric — but some specific actions that I believe that have abused authority and rise to the level of impeachable offense, in my view, would go well beyond the current Ukraine scandal.”

Published

on

Members of the "Morning Joe " panel were both appalled and disgusted after watching a video of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) pushing Russian propaganda and defending Donald Trump over the weekend, recalling the ugly campaign the president ran against the Texas Republican in 2016.

Addressing Cruz's appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," where he accused Ukraine of meddling in the 2016 election, host Joe Scarborough marveled out at how the senator debased himself in the service of Trump after what happened to him in 2016.

After the host brought up the interview, MSNBC regular Donny Deutsch had a few things to say about Cruz.
