Haley railes against Trump critics | Currently America | DW


Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has made serious allegations against former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former Chief of Staff John F. Kelly. The two, while in office, have undermined US President Donald Trump's authority and also wanted to win them over, writes Haley in a book to be published in the United States this Tuesday. Kelly and Tillerson had told her that they had tried to "save the country," Haley was quoted by American media.


"Undermining a president is really a dangerous thing and it's against the Constitution and what the Americans want," Haley said on CBS. The 47-year-old had voluntarily given up her influential position as UN Ambassador to New York at the end of 2018.

Kelly defended himself via "Washington Post": If working against Trump means to give him the "best and most open, lawful and ethical" advice for an informed decision, he pleads guilty, said the 69-year-old ex-general. Kelly had been released in December 2018, Tillerson (67) in March of the same year – allegedly via Twitter. Trump has often asked him to do things that are unlawful, Tillerson explained months after his replacement.

Pence spare?

Unlike Tillerson and Kelly, Nikki Haley is said to have great ambitions in Washington. Despite all the denials, there is persistent speculation that she could compete with Trump for the US election in 2020 instead of Vice President Mike Pence.
