Haley Offended When Tillerson, Kelly Tried to Get Her to 'Undermine' Trump

US President Donald Trump shakes hands with Nikki Haley the United States Ambassador to the United Nations in the Oval office of the White House

Nikki Haley told CBS on Sunday that she was offended when two top Trump aides attempted to recruit her to undermine the president in order to "save the country". "The president didn't know what he was doing", Haley wrote of the views the two men held. In a 2018 anonymous op-ed in the New York Times, an unnamed member of the administration claimed that "many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump's more misguided impulses until he is out of office". Haley resigned as United Nations ambassador in October 2018 and got a friendly farewell from the president.

Kelly and Tillerson were opposed to the move, while Haley had the support of Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. Haley writes that she was "shocked" by the request, made during a closed-door meeting, and thought they were only trying to put their own imprint on his policies.

[I] nstead of saying that to me, they should've been saying that to the president, not asking me to join them on their sidebar plan. It should've been, "Go tell the president what your differences are, and quit if you don't like what he's doing".

Haley's account could do a lot to keep her in the president's good graces-or at the very least keep her from becoming reviled by his base should she in fact run for president later. "And it was offensive".

Haley said former White House Chief of Staff John Kelley and former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had both approached her about undermining the president, The Post reported.

Boeing is ramping up the number of people assigned to deal with the software program documentation, a source stated. Boeing and legislators will return to Iowa at a yet-to-be-decided date to finish the audit, the delegates stated.

Kelly, for his part, said that if providing the president "with the best and most open, legal and ethical staffing advice from across the (government) so he could make an informed decision is 'working against Trump, ' then guilty as charged". The two former officials couldn't immediately be reached for comment about the articles.

In the book, Haley supports numerous Trump foreign policy decisions that others in the administration opposed, including the unilateral withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement, as well as the decision to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. She performed admirably as a Trump crony, telling Fox News that when the audience at the United Nations laughed when Trump claimed he accomplished more than any other USA president, they were actually laughing with him, and she tried to heap praise on Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushener, the president's nepotism hires. "And the president's words had been hurtful and risky", Haley wrote. "I picked up the phone and called the president".

"He tweeted this past summer ... to 'go back and fix the crime infested places from which they came.' Was that appropriate?"

"No, it's not appropriate", Haley agreed before defending the Trump. "From the standpoint of: don't bash America over and over again, and not do something to try and fix it".

The Washington Post obtained a copy of her book, titled "With All Due Respect", ahead of its Tuesday release.
