President Donald J. Trump and his son Don Jr. are resisting the establishment’s wicked potential effort to get Nikki Haley added to the Republican ticket. The reported Haley ploy is similar to how Lyndon Baines Johnson schemed his way onto the Democrat ticket in 1960 with John F. Kennedy. Trump and Haley and others square off in Tuesday’s New Hampshire Republican primary on the heels of Trump’s win in the Iowa caucus.
Nikki Haley claimed in New Hampshire that she did not want to be Trump’s running mate and that the idea was “off the table,” though she also previously falsely claimed “I would not run (for president) if President Trump ran” so we know her words are meaningless. Responding to Haley’s possible head-fake, Don Trump Junior tweeted, “Your terms are 100% acceptable. Thank you.”
“She’s not presidential timber. Now when I say that, that probably means that she’s not going to be chosen as the vice president,” Trump said in New Hampshire days ago.
Though Ron DeSantis endorsed President Donald Trump when DeSantis dropped out of the presidential race, the effect is that DeSantis’ anti-Trump voters now have the ability to coalesce around Neocon Nikki to try to weaken Trump and help Haley’s chances of forcing her way onto Trump’s ticket.
“Nikki “Birdbrain” Haley is losing BIG in the polls against Crooked Joe. I am beating him all over the place. She is WEAK ON THE BORDER, I AM THE STRONGEST BORDER PRESIDENT, EVER. Th at’s all you have to know!!!,” President Donald J. Trump recently wrote on Truth Social.
John F. Kennedy famously only picked Lyndon Johnson for running mate in 1960 because he reportedly said “Those bastards were trying to frame me,” referring in part to Johnson.
Former Defense Secretary General James Mattis and some White House employees were directly aware of and monitoring a team working to launch a Mattis Republican primary campaign against President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, according to documents obtained by Big League Politics and statements from the organizers who put the team together.
“My job was to see what his pathway to the White House would look like,” Travis Snyder told Big League Politics in a series of interviews, referring to General Mattis. “There was a very small team.”
Snyder, a twenty-five year-old Indiana-based political consultant whom insiders say is close to Vice President Mike Pence, ran point on the operation, which Mattis and others were keeping track of.
Snyder also confirmed that the group polled Mike Pence’s chances to run against Trump, and found that Pence had no chance.
“I oversaw early states polling, putting together possible running mates,” Snyder said.
“I did not work with the fundraising team. I solely looked at what his path to the nomination would look like, and then his pathway to the White House,” Snyder said, declining to name the donors to the effort or the main person organizing it.
Running mate prospects included Nikki Haley and Dan Crenshaw.
“Nikki Haley was polled. Jackie Walorski, Mitch Daniels. There were regional smaller named people like Staff Sergeant Johnny Joe Jones” but Jones did not have the name ID, Snyder said.
“Dan Crenshaw was polled as a VP nominee in the event that Mattis” ran, Snyder said.
“General Mattis was aware of the effort,” Snyder confirmed. “He knew of the team, who exactly brought the team together.”
