A "strange tweet" from former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has led to speculation of a possible shake-up in who might be President Donald Trump's running mate in 2020.
"Enough of the false rumors. Vice President Pence has been a dear friend of mine for years. He has been a loyal and trustworthy VP to the President. He has my complete support," Haley tweeted last week.
But her reference to unspecified "false rumors" only served to renew ongoing speculation that President Trump plans to replace Vice President Mike Pence with Haley in 2020.
Pence joined BlazeTV's Eric Bolling in an exclusive one-on-one interview on Tuesday's episode of "America with Eric Bolling" to set the record straight.
Asked by Bolling if Haley's "strange tweet" was "a hat tip to 2020 as President Trump's running mate," Pence calmly downplayed the notion.
"What I can tell you is that Nikki Haley and I are very close friends. We are, both of us, completely focused on reelecting this team in 2020," Pence responded.
"I'm really looking forward to campaigning shoulder-to-shoulder with this president," Pence said. "I'm honored to serve as his vice president and it's going to be a great honor for me to be out there campaigning as his running mate in 2020," he added.
In the interview, Pence also explained the White House's interest in Greenland, dismissed the notion that President Trump asked about using nuclear weapons to stop hurricanes, addressed the real impact of the trade war with China, and more.
