Mick Mulvaney, Pence Pompeo, Nikki Haley discussed on Bloomberg Businessweek


Latest sound on podcasts, we talked to former OMB director former acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney for his take on Donald Trump's speech at cpac. Call it Trump pack now. It's not really a conservative hack.

But the fact that all of the major names other than Trump stayed away. And Nicky Haley was there, of course, you know, there's some discussion about is she running for Trump's vice president. Yes, right. On her in the race in order to, you know, there was some polling data that would indicate she pulls from desantis more than Trump. Hear the full conversation on the latest edition
