Trump SHOOTS DOWN NYT story that he’s doubting Mike Pence’s loyalty

The New York Times reported that Trump was privately doubting Mike Pence’s loyalty and was thinking of replacing him.

Then Trump heard about it and he’s very unhappy:

He even said so publicly:

Here’s what the report said:

President Trump has privately asked aides about his vice president Mike Pence’s loyalty, The New York Times reported Friday.

Trump reportedly questioned Pence’s allegiance so many times that many of his advisers are alarmed, as those kinds of inquiries tend to indicate that he is irritated with someone.

According to the Times, most people within the White House have been supportive of Pence when asked, but some of Trump’s outside advisers have suggested that the vice president may have used up his utility.

Trump has reportedly not made it clear whether he is seriously considering a 2020 ticket change or whether he is simply trying to get advisers’ opinions before the campaign begins.

The Times noted that some outside advisers have suggested outgoing United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley as a potential replacement for Pence. Trump praised Haley when she announced her intentions to leave her post at the U.N. in October.

I mean, frankly, I could see him saying this. I could also see him deny it completely and then later change his mind. So, basically, we know nothing at this point.
