Political commentator and CNN analyst Paul Begala predicted at an AIPAC event that President Trump will dump Pence for Nikki Haley.
“This is not a prediction. It’s a certainty.” Begala boldly states.
Begala further claims Trump put Pence in charge of the coronavirus response so he can throw him under the bus later.
TheHill reports longtime CNN political analyst Paul Begala predicted on Monday that President Trump is “gonna dump [Vice President] Mike Pence in favor of former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley” on July 16 when the Democratic nominee is slated to give his or her acceptance speech.
The former “Crossfire” co-host “guaranteed” Trump will throw Pence “under the bus” because of his handling of the coronavirus, which the president tapped Pence to lead a task force on last week.
“This is not a prediction. It’s a certainty. On Thursday, July 16 — that’s the date the Democrat gives his or her acceptance address — on that day, to interrupt that narrative, Donald Trump will call a press conference at Mar-a-Lago. He’s going to dump Mike Pence and put Nikki Haley on the ticket to try to get those suburban moms,” Begala predicted during a panel discussion at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) conference in Washington, D.C.
“You watch. Guaranteed,” Begala said. “Trump put Pence in charge of coronavirus to throw him under the bus.”
In December, Begala predicted that Trump would be impeached again.
“This is not the last impeachment we will cover of Donald J. Trump,” he said during a panel discussion on “Anderson Cooper 360.”
