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

Published

on

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.

Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist Maggie Haberman posted a fascinating update about a photo of impeachment figure Lev Parnas.

The photo shows Igor Fruman -- who, like Parnas, is under federal indictment -- sitting closely next to Rudy Giuliani and Parnas.

Haber said a source informed her that in the picture, Parnas can be seen wearing a "Presidential Service Badge," linking to the Wikipedia entry on the pin.

"The Presidential Service Badge (PSB) is an identification badge of the United States Armed Forces which is awarded to members of the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Coast Guard as well as other members of the Uniformed Services, such as the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Corps and the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, who serve as full-time military staff to the President of the United States," Wikipedia explained.
