Donald Trump has a big decision to make before his presidential campaign kicks into full swing.
Vice President Mike Pence has been anxiously awaiting that decision.
And Mike Pence just got this jaw-dropping news about being dropped from the 2020 ticket.
Pundits spent months whispering that Donald Trump wanted to shake up his poll standings by swapping out Vice President Mike Pence with former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.
Political observers speculated that Haley would add gender and racial diversity to the ticket and help the President woo suburban female voters.
Every time a President runs for re-election, there is always talk of replacing the Vice President.
And it ends up being just that – talk.
This time it was Nikki Haley that nipped the rumors in the bud by publicly renouncing any speculation she would replace Pence.
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. ❤️???????? pic.twitter.com/waPyQjC8Eb

This was a face saving move by Haley.
Although she left the administration on good terms, Haley is a pro-open borders, pro-amnesty RINO.
She has little to no credibility with the conservative base where as Trump selecting Pence back in 2016 helped convince skeptical Evangelical Christians that Trump could be trusted.
Switching out Pence for Haley makes little sense.
There is no evidence Haley even supports Donald Trump or his agenda.
During the 2016 campaign, she used her response to Barack Obama’s State of the Union to attack Trump and not Obama.
Haley may be plotting a run for President in 2024, so she may be using her time trying to distance herself from Trump’s legacy and undermining his initiatives.
