Nikki Haley: Tillerson & John Kelly Tried to Recruit Me to Defy Trump

In her new book former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley claims former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly tried to recruit her to defy President Donald Trump.

John Kelly denied the allegations and Tillerson has not yet issued a response.

Fox News reports:

"[I]nstead of saying that to me, they should've been saying that to the president, not asking me to join them on their sidebar plan," Haley said.
Haley said that the two men “confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren't being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country” and how “Tillerson went on to tell me the reason he resisted the president's decisions was because, if he didn't, people would die…."
Haley, however, was not impressed.
“It should've been, 'Go tell the president what your differences are, and quit if you don't like what he's doing,'” Haley told O’Donnell. “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."
