There are few who stand with President Trump as fervently as Rush Limbaugh.
He actually wants Trump to succeed, and will send frank warnings when need be.
And Limbaugh just destroyed an anti-Trump coup before it could start.
It has been nearly a year since Nikki Haley left her post as ambassador to the United Nations, and Trump’s most loyal supporters couldn’t be happier with that.
Despite the fact that Haley acted like she supported President Trump, she had been one of the leading voices against the President’s America First policies since before he even took office.
On the campaign trail she didn’t just refuse to endorse Trump, she openly spoke against him stating that she is “not a fan of” him, stating that voters should reject the “angriest” voices on immigration.
So it wasn’t surprising when Haley quickly attacked Trump’s travel ban from terrorist nations, which was one of his signature immigration policies.
That didn’t surprise anybody who was really paying attention.
Haley’s worldview truly doesn’t align with that of President Trump.
She fits squarely in the mold of neoconservatives like Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney, who Trump’s election was a direct rebellion against.
So it wasn’t surprising when many of these establishment voices quickly called on Haley to challenge Trump for the presidency in 2020.
Thankfully, she did not do that.
But that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have further political ambitions, which could even involve a future presidential election come 2024, or even replacing Mike Pence as Vice President as many establishment Republicans are praying for.
In the meantime, she just released a book where she discusses her time serving under Trump.
And she reveals a lot of information about that time, including going after other members of the Trump Administration.
She claims that former White House chief of staff John Kelly and former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were working behind the scenes to oppose Trump’s agenda in order to “save the country.”
This is a claim they deny, but it is something that Trump seems grateful for, as he posted an endorsement for her book.
But while Trump, who is known for offering forgiveness to those who have wronged him, may be willing to throw his support behind her, Rush Limbaugh is much more skeptical.
Limbaugh questions if Haley ever told Trump about Tillerson and Kelly when she was in her position, or if she was waiting to reveal it in a future book to increase sales.
“I have one question for Nikki Haley,” Limbaugh began. “Did you tell Trump what Kelly and Tillerson were doing, or did you save it for the book?”
It’s a simple question, but gets right to the bottom of the issue.
Haley seems to be trying to crawl back into Trump’s circle so she can get into the good graces of his supporters.
Before Trump was in office, she hedged her bets on him losing by refusing to support him, only to support him in exchange for a position in his cabinet.
Now that she is out of office, she seems to be playing political games in order to gain much-needed support for her future political ambitions.
