Trump to join Pence in disclosing 2016 financial information

Most importantly, Trump's potential successor would be Vice President Mike Pence, whose stated opinions on social issues are sometimes even more conservative than Trump's. While there were Trump supporters who wanted him to speak, the school made a decision to instead invite Pence, a former IN governor. They see him as skilled, knowledgeable, and free from the "drama" of the present administration.

This adviser said that they are not anxious about Trump bringing Pence down with the news about a Comey memo or the new special counsel. If Trump were removed from office either by impeachment or some other process - such as his own resignation - Pence would become president and therefore assume prime position for a full-scale presidential run in 2020 - unless Pence himself is removed through impeachment. His conversion to born-again Christianity, and the influence of Ronald Reagan, saw him shift to the Right of the political spectrum.

But for Democrats uttering the first whispers of impeachment talk in the halls of the Capitol, the president's unobtrusive and strait-laced understudy has emerged in recent days as a prime target - an heir apparent to an increasingly embattled president whom they are eager to tarnish. "From Capitol Hill to K Street, the notion that many Republicans prefer Pence to Trump in the Oval Office is perhaps the worst-kept secret in Washington".

Trump's policies have already set in motion damage to the health of women worldwide - and those who think his potential impeachment would undo that are nearly certainly wrong.

No one contacted by TheStreet could recall such a setup by other vice presidents.

On any given day, Pence will do his customary spot-on imitation of a bobblehead.

The Pence team knew what they were getting themselves into when they joined the Trump ticket and team nearly a year ago.

"Pence, at least, is a governor".

If the headlines are dominated every day by investigations into Trump (they will be), Congressional Republicans need this to end as soon as possible. "And he's blithely complicit in abetting Bannon's deliberate dissolution of our democracy", Whedon said in an email to BuzzFeed News.

A Pence presidency would invert current American politics, highlighting policies and ideas while downplaying personalities and showmanship.

It's hard for a vice president of the United States to disappear from sight. But even if he could, there's still the fact that a Trump departure-through resignation or removal-would completely fracture the Republican Party, laying bear the divisions that nearly consumed it during the 2016 presidential election.

Asked Thursday about the possibility of a President Pence, House Speaker Paul Ryan shrugged off the question. Likewise, in a piece calling for the 25 Amendment option-removing Trump from office as too incapacitated to perform his duties-conservative New York Times columnist Ross Douthat argued this move would leave conservative governance in place, i.e., Republicans would still have Pence. Administration officials say they will propose spending $200 billion in federal dollars to leverage additional spending by state and local governments and the private sector. "No problem - elect Trump then impeach him".

"He wants to support the house and Senate members who are helping to pass the president's agenda", the PAC's director, Nick Ayers, said.
