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

"Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren't being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country", Haley wrote, according to CBS News, which got an advance copy of the new tome. "And the president's words had been hurtful and risky", Haley wrote.

But she said that Kelly and Tillerson said that cutting aid could lead to threats to Israel as well as reduced USA influence.

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". 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.

"It absolutely happened", she said.

Kelly and Tillerson were opposed to the move, while Haley had the support of Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

"It was their decisions, not the president's, that were in the best interests of America, they said".

Additionally, Haley recalled feeling unconvinced when Tillerson told her he was resisting the president's decisions because "if he didn't, people would die..." "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".

Some of them went to land book deals, including former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and former communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

Mr Trump told them to work out their problems elsewhere. "The president didn't know what he was doing", Haley wrote of the views the two men held.

But Haley also pointed to several disagreements with the president: over his embrace of Russian President Vladimir Putin when they met in Helsinki in 2017, and over Trump's "moral equivalence" in suggesting there were good people on "both sides" after the deadly white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Virginia.

But Ms Haley also said she supported a number of Mr Trump's policies that others within the administration opposed - such as his decisions to pull the USA out of a nuclear deal with Iran, and to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.

"'I have four secretaries of state: you, H.R., Jared, and Rex", Haley recounted Kelly saying. Mr Kelly said he had wanted to the president to be fully informed.

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

"If you look in that transcript there is nothing in that transcript that warrants the death penalty for the President".
