Nikki Haley Says 2 White House Staffers Were Plotting to Undermine Trump

Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley accuses two former White House officials of plotting to undermine President Donald Trump, according to The Washington Post.

Haley makes these claims in her new memoir titled With All Due Respect, which is set to release on Tuesday, Nov. 12. In the book, she claims that former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly tried to recruit her to undermine the president.

Haley says Kelly and Tillerson told her they weren't trying to be insubordinate but instead were "trying to save the country." Tillerson went on to tell her that people would die unless the president were checked, according to Haley.

Haley, former governor to South Carolina, says the meeting with Kelly and Tillerson lasted an hour, after which neither of them approached her about the topic again, reports Time.

"It should have been, 'Go tell the president what your differences are and quit if you don't like what he's doing,'" she said. "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. It was offensive."

In response to Haley's book, Kelly told CBS' Sunday Morning that he merely was "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." If that's what Haley meant by "resistance and stalling," Kelly says, then he's "guilty as charged."
