"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 in the book, according to The Washington Post. Unlike many other former Trump staffers that have either been ousted or left due to disagreements with the president, Haley has since remained a staunch supporter of the president.

Later, Tillerson said the president was "undisciplined" and did not like to read briefing reports. "The president didn't know what he was doing", she continued.

In the book, Haley supports numerous Trump foreign policy decisions that others in the administration opposed, including the unilateral withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement, as well as the decision to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Kelly and Tillerson were opposed to the move, while Haley had the support of Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

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

In a new book, Ms Haley says then-Chief of Staff John Kelly and then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told her to resist some of Mr Trump's demands.

Kelly and Tillerson's arguments mirror those made by some of the witnesses Democrats called to testify in private before the House Intelligence Committee. When the disagreement moved from the Oval Office to Kelly's office, Haley wrote that Kelly told her, "'I have four secretaries of state: "you, H.R. [McMaster then-national security adviser], Jared, and Rex.

Mr Trump told them to work out their problems elsewhere.

He served as secretary of state until his resignation in March 2018. Mr Kelly said he had wanted to the president to be fully informed.

"We've solved a lot of problems and we're in the process of solving a lot of problems", the president said, adding that if she chooses to return to his administration, Haley can have her "pick" of jobs.

The former ambassador said she disagreed with the president over his handling of Russian President Vladimir Putin at a summit in Helsinki in 2017.

Trump's reaction - that both sides had been to blame - was painful, Haley wrote.

"There was no heavy demand insisting that something had to happen".

"No, it's not appropriate", Haley told CBS.

The Post reported that Haley said that during her time in the administration she felt obligated "to carry out [Trump's] wishes since he was the one elected by voters".

"If you look in that transcript there is nothing in that transcript that warrants the death penalty for the President".
