As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information written by Philip Klein and published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

When UN Ambassador Nikki Haley shocked the political world by abruptly announcing her resignation just weeks ahead of the midterm elections, speculation immediately spread that she planned to run against President Trump in 2020. But she isn’t going to run against Trump in 2020 — instead, the move sets her up nicely to run against Vice President Mike Pence in 2024.

Nothing about Haley’s move is consistent with what you’d expect if she decided to challenge a sitting president, even if we dismiss her assurances that she would not run in 2020 and would campaign for Trump instead.

Were a high-ranking official going to resign to challenge a sitting president, one would expect that person to do so dramatically, in opposition to something the president did — with an op-ed, public statement, and media blitz effectively launching the campaign.

The article goes on to state the following:

Furthermore, challenging Trump would make no sense. Trump’s approval rating among Republicans is at 87 percent — and whatever vestiges there were of the “NeverTrump” movement have likely left the party by now. If Trump draws a challenger, it will be either somebody young and obscure, or an older politician with no future career ambitions — in other words, somebody with nothing to lose.

Haley, a savvy 46-old politician with a bright future, who has been careful not to burn her bridges either with Trump’s supporters or his skeptics within the party, isn’t going to blow up all her careful work in a hopeless bid just to make a a handful of columnists happy. She’s playing the long-game.

  1. Haley was a superior ambassador. However, I would never vote for this woman for any political office. She was one of the first to bow to the pressure to discard Confederate-related artifacts in SC and has proven, time and again while Governor, that pandering to special interests is more important than the interests of constituents.
