Haley says in memoir that Tillerson, Kelly undermined Trump

Former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley says in her new memoir, With All Due Respect, that two of President Trump’s senior advisers undermined and worked around their boss, saying they were trying to “save the country.”

Haley wrote that the pair, former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, tried to recruit her to help them, but she refused, The Washington Post reported Sunday, citing a copy of the book obtained before its Tuesday release.

Tillerson did not respond to the Post‘s request for comment.

Kelly said if providing Trump with “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.”
