Although he hasn’t said it out aloud, vice president Mike Pence has made it clear that he wants no part of the ‘Trump drama.’ Last week, after the New York Post reported that Mike Pence is running for 2020, the latter vehemently denied the story, reiterating that he is loyal to the president.

However, new evidence has now surfaced on a website called “Official Mike Pence. Com.” The home page of the website shows a photograph of Mike Pence, with the caption, “The 46th president of the United States.”

It’s not clear whether Pence is rooting for 2020 or if he’s anticipating Trump’s early exit. However, if whispers in the White House are to be believed, Pence might be hoping for the latter.

Scaramucci’s cryptic message about Pence

During his infamous, expletive-laden phone call with New Yorker journalist Ryan Lizza, Anthony Scaramucci, the former White House Communications director, suggested that Pence is clueless about what’s happening in the Oval Office. Scaramucci said that Pence’s newly appointed Chief Of Staff Nick Ayers was recruited for a reason. “Nick’s there to protect the vice-president because the vice-president can’t believe what the fuck is going on,” Scaramucci told Lizza.

Who is Nick Ayers?

On July 28, vice-president Pence appointed Nick Ayers as his new chief of staff. The 34-year-old replaced Josh Pitcock, who served Pence for 12 long years. Reports claim Pitcock resigned of his own accord.

As for Ayers, Pence knew him when he was campaigning for his vice-presidency. In 2016, Ayers served as national chairman for Pence’s vice-presidential campaign. Although Ayers was to work with Pence in the White House, Trump’s former chief of staff Reince Priebus blocked his appointment. Now, with Priebus out of the way, Ayers is free to implement changes that are necessary to elevate Pence's position. Reports claim that Ayers is secretly preparing Pence for the Oval Office.

Trump is dishonest: Poll

Trump’s lack of decided approach — particularly in the hiring and firing of White House staff handpicked by the president himself— has led to draining his own swamp. Such indecisiveness calls into question Trump’s ineptitude to rule.

In a troubling trail of new lows for Trump, a recent poll conducted by Quinnipiac University shows that most Americans think the president is dishonest and does not have the ability to lead. With ratings dwindling over time, many have lost confidence in Trump and his promise to “make America great again.” This is good news for Pence, who is next in line to the Oval Office.
