This week, a New York Times report revealed President Donald Trump is paranoid that Vice President Mike Pence or United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley might run against him in 2020. Now it seems he might have a reason to be afraid.
According to the Associated Press, Haley’s office accidentally sent press clippings meant for the ambassador to their press list. Among those were the comments “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough said about Haley’s strength as a candidate. The clipping meant for Haley read: “Scarborough: Nikki Haley would beat Donald Trump if she ran in 2020 GOP primary.”
“She has an incredibly bright future and will be a major player for the Republican party in the years ahead,” the AP cited former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, an informal Trump ally. “I think she’s a future secretary of state and vice president. And remember: this president learns a lot from television. She is a remarkably effective presence for the United States of America on television and the president likes that.”
Haley has repeatedly said that she is focused on her work at the U.N
