Donald Trump putting Mike Pence on the ticket in 2016 helped drive conservative grassroots turnout through the roof on route to Trump’s surprise win over Hillary Clinton.
From that moment on Pence and his allies thought the Vice President’s place on the 2020 ticket was secure.
But Mike Pence had no idea what hit him when this bombshell about his future dropped.
Former Clinton top strategist Paul Begala appeared at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) conference in Washington, D.C.
At AIPAC’s conference, Begala stunned the crowd with a prediction as to how Donald Trump would shake up the Presidential race.
Begala predicted that on the day the Democrat nominee was set to deliver their acceptance speech the President would announce he was dumping Mike Pence from the ticket and replacing him with former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.
Replacing Pence with Haley – Begala reasoned – would open up doors for the President to win back suburban women voters.
“This is not a prediction. It’s a certainty. On Thursday, July 16 — that’s the date the Democrat gives his or her acceptance address — on that day, to interrupt that narrative, Donald Trump will call a press conference at Mar-a-Lago. He’s going to dump Mike Pence and put Nikki Haley on the ticket to try to get those suburban moms,” Begala claimed.
Begala claimed that Trump handed Pence the task of overseeing the administration’s response to the coronavirus because it was a doomed-to-fail effort that would provide Trump the excuse to swap out Pence for Haley.
“You watch. Guaranteed,” Begala explained. “Trump put Pence in charge of coronavirus to throw him under the bus.”
Few Trump supporters actually believe the President is really considering this trade.
Pence loyally served the President, whereas Haley is a RINO who many suspect is a secret Never-Trumper.
