Joe Scarborough to 2020 Candidates: Plan Campaign Against Trump, But Expect to Run Against Nikki Haley

Joe Scarborough has some words of advice for any Democrats considering a 2020 run for the White House: “Plan your campaign against Donald Trump, but expect to be running against Nikki Haley.”


The panel discussion of potential Presidential hopefuls from the blue side of the aisle started with listing those who will likely throw their hat in the ring, including Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and even Beto O’Rourke.

In the middle of the discussion, however, the Morning Joe host offered the unsolicited “war room” advice suggesting that the GOP candidate will not be the incumbent candidate Trump, but instead his former United Nations ambassador and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.

Warning: the segment embedded above includes some metaphorical imagery that might be upsetting to some viewers, namely the idea of Donald Trump sitting in a sauna outlasting his competitors.

It is not clear if the next president needs to go win some sort of a “sauna competition,” but we are reaching out to the White House for comment and will update this post when we hear back.
