"Kelly and Tillerson confided to me that when they resisted the President, they were not rude, but tried to save the country," Haley wrote.
"It was their decisions Not those of the president who are in America's best interests, they said. The president did not know what he was doing, "Haley wrote about the views of the two men.
Tillerson also told her that people would die if Trump was disabled, Haley wrote.
Tillerson did not respond to a request for comment. Kelly declined to comment in detail, but said that if he gave the president "the best and most open, legal, and ethical personal council from around the world [government] to make an informed decision, he would work against Trump." 39; then he would be guilty of defendants.
In the book the Washington Post received prior to its release on Tuesday, Haley only briefly comments critically on her former boss, stating that she and others who work for Trump have since been obliged to fulfill his wishes he was chosen by the voters.
The former governor of South Carolina, widely regarded as a potential presidential candidate by the Republicans in 2024, has repeatedly tried to minimize the differences with Trump while distancing himself from his excesses. Haley, 47, writes that she supported most of Trump's foreign policy decisions that tried to block or slow others, including the withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal and the Paris Climate Agreement and the transfer of the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. 1
9659002] In a New York interview with The Post, which coincided with the publication of the book, Haley also rejected the efforts of the House Democrats to prosecute Trump. She said she opposes Trump's efforts to seek foreign aid for political investigation in a call to the Ukrainian president, but the measures are not contestable.
"There was no great demand to insist that something had to happen. That's why it's hard for me to understand where the whole impeachment situation comes from, because what everyone is holding in their arms has not happened.
So, I think it's not a good practice to talk to foreign governments about investigating Americans? Yes. I think the President has done something to justify his impeachment? No, because the aid was flowing, "she said, referring to nearly $ 400 million in disbanded military aid.
"And the Ukrainians did not pursue the investigation," Haley said.
In her book, Haley points to several instances of disagreement with Trump. She said that she had turned to the President privately, fearing that he had relinquished authority to Russian President Vladimir Putin after the two leaders met in Helsinki in 2018 and with their objection to Trump's "moral equivalency In response to a deadly white supremacy march in Charlottesville the year before.
Haley's experience as a governor in the murders of nine black churchgoers in a historic African American church in Charleston by a well-known White Highassist made Trump's reaction to Charlottesville painful, Haley wrote. Trump said that "both sides" are responsible for the violence.
"The words of a leader are important in these situations, and the President's words were hurtful and dangerous," Haley wrote, "I picked up the phone and called the President."
Haley, however, did not make public Objections.
Haley also reports for the first time that she was treated for the post-traumatic stress disorder following the Charleston murders, reporting sobbing, loss of appetite, lack of concentration, and feelings of guilt as the victims and their families suffered so much more.
In a CBS interview aired on Sunday, Haley said Trump was "inappropriate" demanding that four Democratic members of Congress, who are women of skin color, return to their countries, three of whom were in the United States born and are all US citizens.
But Haley also defended Trump and said, "I can auc h appreciate where he comes from time and time again and do nothing to fix it. "
Haley is the US-born daughter of Indian immigrants and writes in the book about the painful experience of being an outsider in the American South still black. Her family was often ostracized, she wrote, and Haley was essentially excluded from a children's contest because Bamberg, SC, crowned only one white and one black winner.
Haley recalls a disagreement she had with Tillerson and Kelly following a showdown at the Oval Office over her suggestion that the US withhold funding from the UN agency in support of the Palestinians.
Kelly and Tillerson argued that cuts in aid could lead to violence, greater threats to Israel, loss of US influence, and violence could create political problems for Arab allies, she writes. This view is common among Middle Eastern observers and Trump critics, who claim that the government's actions are punitive and short-sighted in the room. It did not formulate the views of the then national security adviser H. R. McMaster.
At the meeting, Haley wrote, Trump seemed to deviate from her point of view, but said the three should resolve their differences elsewhere. In Kelly's office, Kelly said to her, "I have four undersecretaries: you, H.R., Jared, and Rex," she wrote. "I only need one."
Tillerson and others were obliged to implement the president's agenda because he had been elected, not them, "Haley wrote, adding that if they argued strongly enough, she said they should stop.
" I was so shocked That I did not say anything when I went home because I just could not keep hugging that two key people in an administration are undermining the president, "Haley said in an interview with The Post.
Another Opportunity told Haley that Kelly had stopped and dropped her off when she wanted to join Trump, and as she walked around him complained, and Kelly also made it clear that he would appoint Trump's decision to appoint Haley as a full member of the Cabinet attend meetings of the National Security Council, thought it was "terrible" and that he would ensure that the next UN ambassador did not hold that rank. she wrote.
Trump gave Haley a warm farewell last fall, while Kelly's departure was announced weeks later in cooler terms. Haley's successor, Kelly Craft, who took up the US post in September, is not ranked as Haley. Tillerson was fired in March 2018 by Trump on Twitter.
"I've found in politics that as a woman in politics you encounter two types of people," Haley said in an interview conducted in her publisher's offices in Lower Manhattan.
"You meet people who respect and support you for your skills and knowledge and the work you are trying to do. Or you meet people who disregard you and see you as in the way. That would happen sometimes, "Haley said.
When asked if she would call Kelly a sexist, Haley said she has no personal argument with the retired four-star Marine General, whom she calls a patriot.
"That's one way to say that sometimes he was not so aware of the work I was trying to do," Haley said.
Trump liked her direct approach and was respectful when they disagreed, Haley said.
She wrote that everyone who had taken a different measure during Republican elementary school when she first assisted Sen. Marco Rubio from Florida and publicly called Trump to publish his tax returns. Trump tweeted that "the people of South Carolina are embarrassed by Nikki Haley!"
"Trump was kicked and he roared, but what he did not know at the time was that I also yell when I'm kicked," Haley wrote.
She struck back with what she called "Southern" Woman code "
" Bless your heart, "she tweeted.
The title of the book refers to Haley's commentary last year, which publicly disproves the White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow's claim
In a detailed blow Haley wrote that she had gone on television at the request of the White House to discuss the US response to a deadly Syrian chemical weapons attack in April 2018 and the US's view that Russia is complicit in speaking. "Asked about criminal sanctions, Haley responded with the latest information Trump had received.
But Trump He had changed his mind and nobody told her, Haley wrote, and then the white house staff hung her up to dry. The Post reported at the time that Trump had changed his mind after Haley spoke.
Haley said when a promised White House statement she declared guilty did not materialize on that day or the next, she gave Kelly a deadline to close the following day – one Tuesday – before she went public , Kudlow's comment to the reporters this Tuesday afternoon was proof that Kelly did not intend to "fix it," she wrote.
Haley told a reporter, "With everything that's due." Respect, I'm not confused. "
Kudlow called within 15 minutes to apologize, and then went public with a small mistake.
"Women are politically cautious for a reason," she wrote. It's not a pretty business, it's often hateful, it would be wonderful if we could change our policy in America to make it less evil and less personal, but until that happens, especially if you're a woman, Always. "
The book leaves the door open for a possible return to politics, but says nothing about the White House's ambitions.In the interview, Haley waved the question off, taking her next steps year after year she said.
"I do not even think so. I think more about it, we have to do everything we can to re-elect the president. And then from there to decide how to use the power of my voice, "Haley said.
And I know that I must and want to be involved in a way that is helpful."
