Nikki Haley: Kelly, Tillerson Tried to Run the Country Behind Trump’s Back

Kelly left the White House a few weeks after Haley, reportedly barely on speaking terms with Trump; the president had fired Tillerson - via Twitter - in March 2018, after the two had repeatedly clashed.

Haley writes in a new book, "Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren't being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country".

The two former Cabinet members sought Haley's help in their endeavors to subvert the President but she refused, Haley wrote.

Additionally, Haley recalled feeling unconvinced when Tillerson told her he was resisting the president's decisions because "if he didn't, people would die..." Haley said that, however, she had the support of the Trump administration's Middle East envoys. He served as secretary of state until his resignation in March 2018.

Neither Tillerson nor Kelly gave comment to the Post regrading Haley's claims, but the speculation that "people would die if Trump was unchecked" has proven true multiple times.

Haley said she supported most of Mr Trump's foreign policy decisions that others in the White House tried to block or slow down, according to the Post. Kelly 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".

It's been more than a year since Nikki Haley resigned as Donald Trump's ambassador to the Uniter Nations.

"We've solved a lot of problems and we're in the process of solving a lot of problems", the president said, adding that if she chooses to return to his administration, Haley can have her "pick" of jobs.

"To undermine a president is really a very unsafe thing", Haley, who served as ambassador to the United Nations, told CBS. And it goes against the Constitution, and it goes against what the American people want. "And instead of saying that to me, they should've been saying that to the president, not asking me to join them on their sidebar plan".

She wrote in her book that she privately expressed concerns to Trump after his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki in 2018. "And the president's words had been hurtful and unsafe", Haley wrote.

"No, it's not appropriate", Haley agreed before defending the Trump.

"He tweeted this past summer ... to 'go back and fix the crime infested places from which they came.' Was that appropriate?" "But I also can appreciate where he was coming from, from the standpoint of, don't bash America over and over and over again and not do something to try and fix it".

Haley's memoir will be released a week before another, more critical, book by a White House insider - "A Warning", written by an anonymous author described only as "a senior official in the Trump administration".
