Nikki Haley alleges disloyalty among some on Trump team

Posted online

In her new memoir, called "With All Due Respect," former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley alleges disloyalty among two former Trump administration leaders.

Haley alleges former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House chief of staff John Kelly told her they were trying to “save the country" by opposing some of President Donald Trump's policies.

“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. … Tillerson went on to tell me the reason he resisted the president’s decisions was because, if he didn’t, people would die.”
