The former United Nations ambassador opened up about her relationship with former top White House aides John Kelly and Rex Tillerson on CBS Sunday Morning. Nikki claimed in her new book, “With All Due Respect”, they attempted to recruit her to “save the country” by undermining President Trump.

Nikki Haley told Norah O’Donnell, “Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren’t being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country.” Rex Tillerson also told her that people would “die” if Trump was unchecked, Haley wrote.

Listen I respect the loyalty from both sides but I lost all respect when Nikki walked out before the Palestinian representative was even able to speak, that’s trashy diplomacy. Ironically that was the same day the U.S. opened its embassy in Jerusalem.

She’s been a governor and an ambassador and for some more than just a friend to Israel. She’s been underestimated by her passion since the beginning so I’d surprised if she didn’t win it or give a run for the money. Her loyalty to President Trump is also an added bonus for the former Ambassador.
