Nikki Haley: Tillerson, Kelly Tried to Recruit Me to ‘Save the Country’ by Undermining Trump

During this week’s broadcast of “CBS Sunday Morning,” it was revealed that former Trump administration U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in her book “With All Due Respect” that then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson “confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country.”

Reading from Haley’s book, Norah O’Donnell asked, “Tillerson went on to tell me the reason he resisted the president’s decisions was because if he didn’t, people would die. Do you memorialize that conversation? It definitely happened?”

Haley said, “It absolutely happened. 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. It should’ve been, ‘Go tell the president what your differences are, and quit if you don’t like what he’s doing.’ But to undermine a president is really a very dangerous thing. And it goes against the Constitution, and it goes against what the American people want. And it was offensive.”

John Kelly released a statement to CBS saying, “If by resistance and stalling she means putting a staff process in place…to ensure the [president] knew all the pros and cons of what policy decision he might be contemplating so he could make an informed decision, then guilty as charged.”

  • Why do these appointed officials think it’s up to them to save the country from the president they serve, he was elected not them.

  • It is exactly why we voted fro Trump and why these long time politically corrupted morons in Washington have lied, set him up, and still try to remove Trump, because he was elected to drain their corrupted Washington swamp of corruption, and they don’t want it drained, they were and many still are making money hand over fist for themselves, their friends, their donors and their familes selling out you, me and the rest of America, How else was China allowed to pillage us for so long ? How did Biden’s coke head son get 80 thousand dollars a month consulting a Ukrainian energy company about all he knew nothing about ? Wake up, Trump never was a threat, they just want imbeciles to believce that.
