Mike Pence spent four years as Donald Trump’s Vice President preparing himself to one day run for the White House.
But as the Republican Party tried to reset itself for the next election Mike Pence is learning something.
And Mike Pence could not believe what this Republican said about him behind his back.
Former U.N. Ambassador and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is positioning herself for her own Presidential campaign in 2024.
Haley hopes that her biography and appeal to identity politics as a female executive and daughter of Indian immigrants will grant her the pole position in the establishment Republican lane while banking on her service in the Trump administration to appeal to the grassroots.
In 2024 Republican elites are more worried about winning back suburban women – who are now reliable Democrat votes – that building on the playbook outlined by Donald Trump that attracted over 74,000,000 voters and the largest share of the nonwhite vote for any Republican since 1960.
Former U.N. Ambassador Haley has long been known as a politician that doesn’t much believe in anything other than the fact that she loves to showboat by calling Republican voters racists to virtue signal in the hopes it will build her national profile in the media.
Now that Donald Trump is out of office Haley is trying to prove to Swamp Republicans that she can “play ball” and will continue the pro-amnesty, pro-global trade deal and pro-endless war Republicanism that exists to lose with dignity to the Democrats.
In an interview with leftwing activist Tim Alberta of POLITICO Haley spent hours trashing Donald Trump to prove that she was “one of the reasonable Republicans” in the tradition of John McCain and Mitt Romney.
Haley sought to kill two birds with one stone by burnishing her establishment credentials and knife a rival by ripping Donald Trump for attacking Pence over Pence performing his constitutional duty to certify the results of the Electoral College.
“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” Haley told Alberta. “Mike has been nothing but loyal to that man. He’s been nothing but a good friend of that man. I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”
This was a clever move by Haley.
Pence knows he can’t blast Donald Trump or risk having Trump tank Pence’s 2024 campaign.
By defending Pence Haley is really drawing a contract with Pence by showing to establishment Republicans that she is willing to take on Donald Trump and criticize him in public.
Establishment Republicans want to move Trump and Haley is trying to demonstrate she is ready, willing and able to excommunicate Donald Trump and his “Make America Great Again” agenda from the GOP.
