The fall retreat in early October is being held by the Trump Victory Committee, a joint fundraising committee of the Trump reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee. 

Reports of Haley's attendance at the event in New York City come a week after she put to bed any lingering rumors that she could run as Trump’s vice president on the 2020 ticket instead of Pence.

She posted a tweet issuing her “complete support" for Pence ahead of the 2020 election.

"Enough of the false rumors. Vice President Pence has been a dear friend of mine for years. He has been a loyal and trustworthy VP to the President. He has my complete support," Haley tweeted.

Pence on Tuesday downplayed any lingering speculation that Haley could take his place alongside Trump, saying he and Haley are “close friends” who are both “completely focused on reelecting this team in 2020.”

Haley departed the Trump administration last year and is widely considered a potential future GOP candidate for higher office.
