THERE IS ALWAYS A METHOD TO THE MADNESS …
Yesterday, it was announced by President Donald Trump that Nikki Haley would be resigning from her position as U.N. Ambassador and leaving at the end of the year. Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, has done a phenomenal job as U.N. ambassador and become a rock star within the GOP. The resignation was done at the White House with much pomp and circumstance in the Oval Office. This is not a normal exit for an ambassador, which begs the question, what is next for Nikki Haley? Rumors and speculation are abound. Will Nikki Haley run for Senate or maybe, just maybe VP? Haley stated yesterday that she would not be running for president in 2020 and only campaigning for President Trump. But it is hard to believe that Haley’s political career is over when she has such a political future.
Nikki Haley is a child of immigrants who rose to become South Carolina governor and then President Donald Trump’s ambassador to the U.N., before her resignation Tuesday. She will leave her U.N. post at the end of the year.
Haley, whose parents were from India, brought diversity to the administration and Trump’s naming her to the post showed he was willing to welcome Republicans who had been lukewarm toward him during the presidential campaign.
Haley had little experience in international affairs prior to her appointment. But she quickly became a prominent voice for Trump’s foreign policy.
With the Democrats being so divisive between men and women, is it possible that Nikki Haley becomes the VP for 2020?
OF COURSE I LIKE THE PICK, BUT WHY DO WE EVEN HAVE A UN THESE DAYS?
President-elect Trump has tapped South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to be the post of United States ambassador to the United Nations. Haley has accepted the nomination. The South Carolina governor said in a statement that she was “honored” for the chance to serve the country as U.N. ambassador. Haley is the daughter of immigrants, from India is serving her second term in the South Carolina statehouse and is seen as a rising star in the Republican Party. She is the first female named to the Trump Cabinet. Haley will remain as the South Carolina’s governor until the Senate acts on her appointment.
President-elect Trump has offered South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley the post of U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and she has accepted, Mr. Trump’s transition team announced Wednesday morning.
“Governor Haley has a proven track record of bringing people together regardless of background or party affiliation to move critical policies forward for the betterment of her state and our country,” the president-elect said in a statement. “She is also a proven dealmaker, and we look to be making plenty of deals. She will be a great leader representing us on the world stage.”
The South Carolina governor, in her own statement, said she was “honored” for the chance to serve the country as U.N. ambassador.
Haley said she was moved to accept the nomination for two reasons: “The first is a sense of duty. When the President believes you have a major contribution to make to the welfare of our nation, and to our nation’s standing in the world, that is a calling that is important to heed. The second is a satisfaction with all that we have achieved in our state in the last six years and the knowledge that we are on a very strong footing,” she wrote.
Daily Commentary – Thursday, July 14, 2016 – Trump has 4 or 5 Candidates He’s Going to Choose his VP From
- Not sure if any will make a difference in the election though
The 5 people who are supposedly on Trumps VP list … YAWN!!!
According to Breitbart.com, the following names were relaeled by Ben Carson as possible Rump VP’s … Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 VP running mate, Sen. Ted Cruz, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. I just don’t see it. Sorry, Sarah Palin, been there, done that. Chris Christie, seriously? Which one, he or Trump will insult more people? Sen. Ted Cruz? Hmm, way too much vitriol between Trump and Cruz, talk about your Odd Couple. Sen. Marco Rubio, why? I am not even sure he can deliver Florida. As a matter of fact, Trump destroyed Rubio in FLA, so what does he bring to the ticket except establishment politics? Ohio Gov. John Kasich was only in the race as he was campaigning for the job of VP. Ohio is important, but I just can’t stand this mushy middle Republican.
My choice for Trump would be Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL).
Dr. Ben Carson confirmed five people on presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s list of potential vice presidential running mates in a recent interview.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 VP running mate to John McCain, was one of the five Carson said was on the list. The rest are all former 2016 GOP presidential candidates: Trump’s closest competitor Sen. Ted Cruz, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Carson named the VP contenders to the Washington Post during a car ride with his wife Candy to a TV interview. Carson has been traveling as a spokesman for Trump. He has also been placed on a committee working on pinning down a running mate for the real estate mogul turned GOP presumptive presidential nominee.
Candy was noted in the backseat exchange as saying Carson was not on the list. They had been discussing a poll which named Carson as a favorable Trump running mate.
WELL OF COURSE SHE ENDORSES RUBIO, DID YOU THINK SHE WOULD EVER ENDORSE TRUMP?
Popular South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley endorsed Florida US Sen. Marco Rubio for president yesterday just ahead of this weekend’s SC primaries. I mean, who did you think she was going to endorse, Donald Trump? After Haley gave the response to Obama’s last SOTU, she took jabs at Donald Trump that did not go unnoticed. This is going to be an interesting make or break Marco Rubio primary. Rubio has been endorsed by 3 of the most popular Republican politicians in South Carolina, Sen. Tim Scott, Rep. Trey Gowdy and now Gov. Haley. She has an 81% approval rating in South Carolina. The polls show that Donald Trump is way out ahead, but if Rubio does not place a strong second, the night will be a failure.
Watch the below video from ‘On the Record’ with Greta Van Susteren. Just curious, was that an endorsement or a date?
“I want a president who understands they have to go back to Washington, D.C., and bring a conscience back to our Republicans,” Haley, a Lexington Republican, told a crowd of hundreds gathered outside a Chapin warehouse.
Haley said she made the decision as a mother who wants a safer, more prosperous nation for her children and as the wife of a combat veteran who wants more support for the military.
Haley did not say why she didn’t choose others candidates running in Saturday’s GOP primary.
“We have good people running for president, and I thank them today for their sacrifice and their willingness to serve,” she said. “But my job was to find the person I thought who could do it the best.
“I wanted someone with fight. I wanted somebody with passion. I wanted somebody who has the conviction to do the right thing,” she said. “But I wanted somebody humble enough (who) remembers that you work for all the people.”
