Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley makes an explosive charge in her new memoir, the Washington Post reports.
Haley alleges that former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly tried to undermine President Trump.
“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 in “With All Due Respect. “It was their decisions, not the president’s, that were in the best interests of America, they said. The president didn’t know what he was doing.”
Haley said they specifically tried to block the president’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate accord.
Haley also writes that Tillerson told her that people would die if Trump went unchecked, the Post reported.
Additionally, Tillerson and Kelly opposed the relocation of the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
Haley said she was shocked that two of the most important people in the administration were undermining the president.
“I was so shocked I didn’t say anything going home because I just couldn’t get my arms around the fact that here you have two key people in an administration undermining the president,” Haley told the Post in an interview.
Shocking indeed that there were Never Trumpers in the Trump White House.
Clearly, Rex Tillerson and John Kelly proved that some of the creatures lurking in the D.C. Swamp are RINOs – Republicans in Name Only.
