Nikki Haley insists Donald Trump is 'truthful' as she returns to spotlight

WaPo Haley says top aides wanted her to undermine Trump

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson denied that he had attempted to undermine President Donald Trump while in his Cabinet, casting former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley, who made the allegation, as a rare participant in key meetings.

That denial came after reports emerged that Haley, in her new book, said that Tillerson worked with former White House chief of Staff John Kelly to combat Trump's decisions and that Haley rebuffed their efforts to join their cause. Haley also writes that Tillerson told her people would die if Trump were allowed to govern unchecked.

"It was their decisions, not the president's, that were in the best interests of America, they said".

Kelly, meanwhile, issued a statement to several news outlets that if giving Trump "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".

Haley called the anonymous op-ed offensive and said this person was trying to cause an unnecessary stir that was ultimately "disrespectful" to the work they were doing. Haley wants to save Trump.

"To undermine a president because you think you know better than him is wrong", Haley said.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley speaks during a meeting of the United Nations Security Council at UN headquarters, September 17, 2018 in New York City.

Haley rebuffed their approach, though she doesn't say she reported their insubordinate attitude to the president. I think it will be interesting in many ways, but what has gotten the most press so far (based on advance copies received by the Washington Post and the Associated Press, two virulently anti-Trump and anti-Republican outlets) is her conflict with former Chief of Staff John Kelly and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. "So when they sat me down that day they were attempting to tell me that if I would work with them, they were trying to save America".

Schiff Sends Out Memo Outlining Public Impeachment Hearing Process
Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), who is spearheading the impeachment inquiry, has not yet finalized the witness list. Schiff later explained that his summary of the call was 'meant to be at least part in parody'.

Humanitarian assistance will always be a priority for the United States, she said, adding that the USA will always be generous when it comes to saving lives and alleviating suffering. She wouldn't undermine the duly elected president, no siree! The president's change of his official residence from NY to Florida last month also removes the constitutional obstacle to running with Haley, who now lives in NY.

"I find her statements on this not particularly credible".

During an appearance Monday on Sean Hannity's prime time Fox News show, Haley claimed that Trump was "misunderstood."

Haley also hit out at the impeachment inquiry, into Trump's conduct regarding Ukraine, which will bring public hearings on Wednesday.

Tuesday saw the publication of With All Due Respect, a carefully crafted memoir that many people see as an attempt to set up the former SC governor for a return to national political life, even a White House run in 2024.

Haley says she refused to go along with the idea.

"It's about currying favor", Steve Schmidt, a former GOP strategist, said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe". "So, when you look at that situation, it's hard to see where impeachment would qualify for that".
