Rex Tillerson Rebukes Nikki Haley Over Allegations He Undermined Donald Trump

WaPo Haley says top aides wanted her to undermine Trump Rex Tillerson Rebukes Nikki Haley Over Allegations He Undermined Donald Trump

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is disputing a claim by Nikki Haley, the former US ambassador to the United Nations, that he sought to subvert President Donald Trump's agenda in an effort to "save the country".

When "Today" anchor Savannah Guthrie pressed Haley on whether she agrees with the President that his now-infamous July call was "perfect", the former United Nations ambassador said that the message of the call was "not a good practice" before quickly jumping in to defend Trump.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said President Trump is truthful and said she never doubted his fitness in office.

"Once the president made a decision, we at the state department undertook our best efforts to implement that decision".

He continued, "Ambassador Haley was rarely a participant in my many meetings and is not in a position to know what I may or may not have said to the President".

Haley also said in every instance she dealt with the president he was truthful, listened, and was great to work with.

"I was so shocked I didn't say anything ... because I just couldn't get my arms around the fact that here you have two key people in an administration undermining the president", Haley told Gearan.

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

Haley rebuffed their approach, though she doesn't say she reported their insubordinate attitude to the president.

The statement was Tillerson's first response to Haley's description of a White House sitdown in which she said that he and then-chief of staff John Kelly told her that they were seeking ways around an erratic chief executive in order to "save the country". And hopes he wants to name her Vice President.

First Kelly, then Tillerson responded, rejecting Haley's spin and asserting they did their jobs right.

"If I don't do the things I do, people will die", Tillerson told her, according to Haley's recounting of the exchange.

A senior White House official told The Post that Haley's account of the dispute about Palestinian funding was "absolutely accurate".

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

Haley's recent media tour may be about promoting her book and her prospects, but she's doing so by staking her claims on solid constitutional grounds.

Trump (above) has not weighed in on the spat between his former advisors, although he has encouraged his 66.7 million twitter followers to buy Haley's book.

Appearing on "Fox & Friends" with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, Haley said that she is used to being underestimated and that she appreciates it. "She wants to be vice president on the Republican ticket in 2020, and I think there's an overwhelming chance that Trump will dump Pence to put Nikki Haley on the ticket". "So, when you look at that situation, it's hard to see where impeachment would qualify for that".
