  • Did Nikki Haley Just Reveal the Leaders of the 25th Amendment Push?

    When Nikki Haley speaks, people listen. – When people start surveying the GOP landscape post-Trump, whether that comes in January after being removed from the the presidency by the Senate (which is not likely to happen), in January 2021 after a loss in the 2020 election (also not in the cards) or in January 2025 following the completion of his second term in office (bingo!), the survey inevitably lands to the name of Nikki Haley as one of his most likely successors. Other names also arise, of course: Names like Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo and Ted Cruz, and the...

    White House chief of staff John Kelly thought President Donald Trump's remarks in a call to the widow of a Green Beret slain by Islamic State terrorists in Niger were "completely appropriate" and "respectful," press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday. "Gen. Kelly was present for the call and thought it was completely appropriate," Sanders told reporters at the daily briefing. "He thought the call was respectful — and he thought that the president did the best job he could under those circumstances to offer condolences on the part of the country." Trump has no recording of Tuesday's call to...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Oct. 9, 2018
    A former Republican senator from New Hampshire says Nikki Haley should visit the early-primary state as soon as possible to explore a 2020 challenge against President Trump. “After four years of Donald Trump, America will want a president of sound mind and dignified presidential bearing," former Sen. Gordon Humphrey told the Washington Examiner. Haley announced her resignation as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday. She opposed Trump in 2016, contributing to suspicion about her departure, which will take effect later this year.
  • Nikki Haley hinted to China that ‘unpredictable’ Trump could invade North Korea: Report

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 17, 2018 | Joel Gehrke
    Ambassador Nikki Haley used the threat of a U.S. invasion of North Korea to secure a new round of sanctions against the regime last year, according to a new report. Harper’s Magazine reported that Haley raised the possibility of a U.S. invasion by telling a Chinese diplomat, “My boss is kind of unpredictable, and I don’t know what he’ll do." Haley recalled making those comments during remarks at a small gathering of people at the Council for National Policy, and as part of her effort to discourage China from vetoing additional oil sanctions on North Korea last September, following the...

    At a time when Republicans are starting to contemplate what their party will look like after Donald Trump leaves office, a rivalry has developed between the two politicians who cut markedly different profiles — and signs of strain are bubbling to the surface. The Pence team has recently asked senior Republicans for updates on Haley’s outreach to donors. And with Haley embarking on a national fundraising tour and promoting a new outside political group, top Pence advisers blame her for persistent rumors that she will replace him on the Trump's ticket in 2020. Tensions flared after Haley chose not to...

    President Trump struck down the possibility of former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley replacing Vice President Mike Pence as his running mate in 2020 during an interview with Fox Business Network Wednesday. Trump was asked about a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed, which suggested the political swap. Trump affirmed his appreciation for Haley, describing her as a “friend” and noting her involvement in his campaign, but dismissed the possibility of her future position as his vice president. “I love Nikki. She’s endorsed me. She’s my friend. She’s a part of my campaign,” Trump said. “But Mike has been a great vice...

    CNN Opinion ^ | April 26, 2019 | Arick Wierson
    President Trump's recent stonewalling tactics, aimed at blocking Congress' ability to follow up on the allegations detailed in the Mueller report, are rooted in the belief that he can run out the clock on the Democrats in the House through the 2020 election. Nonetheless, it's a strategy fraught with peril, and if the President begins to see a significant erosion in his approval numbers from Americans tired of the endless standoff, he might need to reach deep into his bag of tricks to reset the national narrative. There is one move that could prove to be a complete game changer:...

    Republicans, independents, and even many Democrats approve of her, and the Constitution allows the House to select a non-member . . . Next month’s election could deliver a close enough result that it will be very difficult for the House of Representatives to organize itself and elect a speaker. If the House deadlocks, the Constitution allows the body to select a non-member to serve as speaker and run the place. It’s never happened before, but at the beginning of this century, few thought figures such as Barack Obama or Donald Trump could ever be elected president. On Capitol Hill, there...

[…] Haley said that the two men “confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country” and how “Tillerson went on to tell me the reason he resisted the president’s decisions was because, if he didn’t, people would die….” Haley, however, was not impressed. “It should’ve been,...

    SEA ISLAND, Georgia — John Kelly warned President Trump that hiring a “yes man” to succeed him as White House chief of staff would lead to impeachment and, in hindsight, regrets his decision to resign. House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump less than a year after Kelly departed the administration. The retired, four-star Marine general suggested the blame lies squarely with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and other advisers who are unable, or unwilling, to keep the president out of trouble.

    The Next George Bush Bet Everything on Trump In a time of outsider politics, can the ultimate insider resurrect his family’s brand? -------------------------------- But how does one sell the party of Trump to communities he’s repeatedly disparaged? On immigration, Bush claims that the challenge isn’t one of substance. “It’s the tone that is not working,” he said, adding that “Texas wants the national government to come forward with solutions,” such as “supporting Border Patrol,” “strategically located physical structures,” and a plan to deal with people who have overstayed their visas, which Bush feels is “the most overlooked issue.” But however...

During a Q&A session, Kelly was asked about a scenario in which Trump’s former Democratic rival had won the presidency and asked him to serve in her administration. “If Hillary Clinton had called me, I would have done it,” Kelly said. Kelly was also asked what advice he would give his successor Mik Mulvaney, to which Kelly quipped “run for it”...
