In Memoir, Haley Alleges Some on Trump Team Urged Resistance

US President Donald Trump shakes hands with Nikki Haley the United States Ambassador to the United Nations in the Oval office of the White House

Nikki Haley, the former USA ambassador to the United Nations, claims in her new book that former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House chief of staff John Kelly attempted to recruit her to subvert President Donald Trump.

Haley wrote in her new memoir With All Due Respect, which was obtained by the Washington Post ahead of its release Tuesday, that Tillerson and Kelly both told her, "The president didn't know what he was doing".

"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, according to CBS News, which got an advance copy of the new tome.

The men explained that they knew better than Trump, Haley said.

In one interaction, Haley details an Oval Office showdown over her suggestion to withhold funding for the United Nations agency that supports Palestinians.

When Kelly was chief of staff, Trump chafed at the orderly processes the general imposed on his freewheeling style and White House operations at large.

"No, it's not appropriate, but I also can appreciate where he was coming from", Haley said.

[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.

Iraqi PM concedes ‘mistakes made’ as protesters pushed back in Baghdad
More than 260 people have been killed and thousands wounded by security forces since the demonstrations broke out in October. Iraq, exhausted by decades of conflict and sanctions, had enjoyed relative calm after Islamic State was defeated in 2017.

Haley said Tillerson and Kelly should've merely quit if they didn't like what Trump was doing. "And it was offensive".

In the interview with CBS, she also criticised House Democrats' moves to impeach the president, saying that impeachment is "like the death penalty for public officials".

Tillerson did not respond to the WaPo request for comment.

There was no immediate comment from Mr Tillerson.

In an interview with the Post in her publisher's NY office, Haley dismissed House Democrats' moves to impeach Trump over his pressure on the Ukrainian government to obtain political dirt on an opponent. She said she went privately to him with her concern that he had ceded authority to Russian President Vladimir Putin after the two leaders met in Helsinki in 2017, and objected to what she called Trump's "moral equivalence" in response to a white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Va., that summer that left a protester dead.

Haley said she supported most of Mr Trump's foreign policy decisions that others in the White House tried to block or slow down, according to the Post.

"A leader's words matter in these situations". "I picked up the phone and called the president". Soon after, supporters chanted "go back" at Trump rallies.
