Conway: Trump plans on being a two-term president



White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said Sunday that President Donald Trump plans to run for a second term in 2020, dismissing rumors that Vice President Mike Pence will run against him.

"The president says privately and publicly, often, George that he'll be president for seven and a half more years, so he plans on being a two term president," Conway said on ABC's "This Week."

Her comments come a day after The New York Times reported that some of Pence's top aides discussed his possible campaign for 2020.Conway dismissed the report, calling them "complete fabrication."

"It is absolutely true that the vice president is getting ready for 2020, for reelection as vice president," she said.

In a White House statement issued Sunday the vice president pushed back on these claims. He called the Times report "distasteful" and "categorically false."

"Whatever fake news may come our way, my entire team will continue to focus all out efforts to advance the President's agenda and see him re-elected in 2020," Pence said. "Any suggestion otherwise is both laughable and absurd."
