Nikki Haley's Claims About Rex Tillerson Are Highly Questionable

Neocon Nikki Haley compared Donald Trump to Dylann Roof during the 2016 presidential election but now she wants everyone to think she was his greatest ally.

From CNN, "Washington Post: Nikki Haley says top Trump aides tried to recruit her to undermine President":
Former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley divulged in her forthcoming memoir that former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House chief of staff John Kelly attempted to recruit her to undermine President Donald Trump in an effort to "save the country," according to The Washington Post.

The two former Cabinet members sought Haley's help in their endeavors to subvert the President but she refused, Haley wrote. The Washington Post obtained a copy of her book, titled "With All Due Respect," ahead of its Tuesday release. CNN has not seen a copy of the memoir.

"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.

At one point, Haley wrote that Tillerson also told her people would die if Trump was unchecked. However, Haley said she supported most of Trump's foreign policy decisions that others in the White House tried to block or slow down, according to the Post.

Haley called Tillerson and Kelly's attempt to subvert the President "offensive" in an interview that aired Sunday on "CBS Sunday Morning."

"It should have been, go tell the President what your differences are and quit if you don't like what he's doing," she said. "To undermine a President is really a very dangerous thing. And it goes against the Constitution and it goes against what the American people want. It was offensive."
The only policies she could have supported which Tillerson and Kelly could have opposed were his radical pro-Israel policies.

As it was reported in September, Tillerson told Trump he got "played" by Israel deceiving him with "misinformation."

She undermined Trump on all other fronts.
Tillerson on Monday denied Haley's claims that he and Kelly attempted to undermine Trump.

"During my service to our country as the Secretary of State, at no time did I, nor to my direct knowledge did anyone else serving along with me, take any actions to undermine the President," Tillerson said. "My conversations with the President in the privacy of the Oval Office were always candid, frank, and my recommendations straightforward. Once the President made a decision, we at the State Department undertook our best efforts to implement that decision."

Haley, Tillerson said in his statement, "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."

Kelly declined to comment in detail to the Post, but said that if providing the President "with 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."
Journalist Ryan Girdusky explained on Twitter why her claims should be met with the highest skepticism:

Haley claimed on Monday she did tell Trump about this supposed subversion:

Trump, in true Trumpian fashion, shilled her book to his 66 million followers:

According to Business Insider, Haley bashes Trump over Charlottesville in her book and says she was "deeply disturbed" by his remarks.

Haley also says everyone who marched in the rally is "just like the Charleston killer."

Earlier this month, Haley received the Theodor Herzl Award from the World Jewish Congress and gave a speech interfering in Britain's election by smearing Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn as an anti-Semite:

As I said, the only policies Tillerson and Kelly could have possibly pushed back on which would draw Haley's ire are those concerning Israel.
