WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Friday that he will stick with Vice President Mike Pence as his running mate in the 2020 presidential election.

“He’s my guy, he’s my friend,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.” He said former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley “would be great,” but that Pence has done a “phenomenal job.”
