The nation was caught off guard early Tuesday when U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley resigned, effective at the end of the year.

Within minutes, figures in the #NeverTrump movement began losing their minds.

Ben Shapiro went on a temper tantrum that is still going strong as this is being written.

National Review Senior Writer David French, who tried to challenge Trump as an independent in 2016, made his feelings known.

But among the sadness, there were some figures looking at the moment as something bigger.

Within minutes of the announcement, figures in the #NeverTrump movement, some with close ties to Evan McMullin, who challenged Trump in 2016, hinted at a 2020 presidential run.

Emily Matthews, who is the Media Manager for Stand Up Republic, a group founded by McMullin, encouraged Haley to run for president in 2020.

Jennifer Rubin, the self-described “conservative blogger” at the Washington Post confidently stated her belief that Haley is going to run.

She followed up her speculation with a series of Tweets making her case as to why she should run.

“Classical Liberal” commentator Dave Rubin, who is close friends with Ben Shapiro, expressed his optimism for a possible Haley run in the future.

There’s no telling what will happen going forward. The Trump presidency has been unpredictable.

Haley has been one of those unpredictable appointments, considering her neocon belief system doesn’t fit well with President Trump’s America First populism.

Only time will tell, but looking at the use of the #Haley2020 hashtag on Twitter, calls for her to run in 2020 aren’t going away soon.
