According to ex-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s new book, Nikki Haley reportedly plotted with Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump to become then-President Donald Trump’s Vice President— even while serving as the 45th president’s ambassador to the United Nations.
Pompeo writes in “Never Give an Inch,” that Haley “played” John Kelly, who was then the White House chief of staff, by showing up to a phony one-on-one meeting with Trump in the Oval Office with the president’s daughter and son-in-law in tow.
“As best Kelly could tell, they were presenting a possible ‘Haley for vice-president’ option. I can’t confirm this, but [Kelly] was certain he had been played, and he was not happy about it. Clearly, this visit did not reflect a team effort but undermined our work for America.” Pompeo wrote in the book.
The speculation that Trump was intending to replace Vice President Mike Pence with South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley for the 2020 campaign got so heated that Trump himself had to publicly contradict the allegations, declaring Pence would “100%” stay on the ticket.
The tale is one of several examples of Pompeo’s contempt for Haley, who, like the former top US ambassador, is mulling a potential presidential bid in 2024.
In the book Pompeo rejects the role of UN Ambassador as much less significant than people believe and challenges Haley’s dedication to public service above her own ambition.
Pompeo goes on to state that he believes that with her resignation, Haley “abandoned” Trump, just as she did the people of South Carolina when she left as governor in 2017 to seek the UN post.
Pompeo also mentions in his book that Trump once had the ‘nutty’ idea that he might somehow be Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense at the same time.
Pompeo praises both Trump and Pence in the book, but slams former national security advisor John Bolton as a “scumbag loser” who should be in jail, for disclosing secret information.
