Nikki Haley claims top aides tried to recruit her to 'save the country' by undermining Trump

Source: Washington Post



NEW YORK — Two of President Trump’s senior advisers undermined and ignored him in what they claimed was an effort to “save the country,” former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley claims in a new memoir.

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly sought to recruit her to work around and subvert Trump, but she refused, Haley writes in a new book, “With All Due Respect,” which also describes Tillerson as “exhausting” and imperious and Kelly as suspicious of her access to 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.

“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 wrote of the views the two men held. Tillerson also told her that people would die if Trump was unchecked, Haley wrote.

Tillerson did not respond to a request for comment. Kelly declined to comment in detail, but said that if providing the president “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.”

6. Agree

She wants to ingratiate herself with Trump’s followers
More importantly, she wants to undermine criticisms of the president
She doesn’t care for the country any more than Trump
Tillotson was a greedy Republican but he didn’t want to report to Russia via Trump
He wanted the US to be strong so very wealthy men like himself would be free

Don’t flatter yourself, lady. They were as dumb to recruit you as they were to work under Trump in the first place. A third stooge wouldn’t have saved the country any more than “Dumb and Dumberer” made “Dumb and Dumber” a great movie franchise.

40. She's just going to be another puppet for the right wing coup, like Trump.

Who the President happens to be doesn't matter to the right wing coup,
as long as it's a loyal puppet.
Republicans never put leaders in the WH. Simply puppets.

14. She really is a True Believer.

I always thought she was of the same ilk as Tillerson and Kelly. Like they she's still an unrepentant corporatist welfare queen, and still supports the big tax giveaway bill, along with cuts in benefits and services to the "little people" to pay for them. But took the job to help Donald not be so crazy.

But she's beyond that it looks like. She supports his crazy. Totally absorbed into his cult.

16. also the tidbit floating around

about a replacement for Pence as running mate. (whether there's an iota of truth or not) So the toadying may be connected to some self promotion and self interest.
In any event .. if you have reason to interact or encounter this woman in the next 20-30 years .. RUN!

18. The way I hear this is "others defied Trump to save the country..."

"...but I would have none of that".

To someone who thinks Trump is a stable genius, she's a real hero. To me, she put party above country.

about winning.

All of the R women and a good chunk of Independents and even some dumb Democrats will be drawn to her.

41. Got a feeling that she's just burned her bridges w/ just about everybody that worked w/...

her in the past or in the future. Nothing like throwing people under the bridge, eh? I don't trust her either. She has that look about her, and that she's a total political animal, more interested in herself than anyone else (why else do 'most' people get into government? IMHO, to help others). Selfish and all about her.

And her answer is "thank you, but no"

After trumpskie's comments about her in 2016, she crawls to him for a job. Weak-willed, eye on her personal benefit, not a patriot. Hope she goes down on trumpskie's ship of fools.
