Nikki Haley already chose to tell-all and name names in her memoir. As a former US Ambassador, she didn’t hold back in any way. One of the names she named was none other than Rex Tillerson. Now, he has chosen to respond to those accusations that caught a number of people by surprise.

Haley was quick to tell that Tillerson tried to convince her to go against Trump on more than one occasion. She said that Tillerson, the former Secretary of State, believed that he knew more of what the country needed than Trump.

Rex Tillerson has adamantly denied being the deep state mole that Haley has made him out to be.

In a statement to the Washington Post, Tillerson tries to clear the record about himself and whether he was trying to undermine President Trump’s agenda. He claims that throughout his time of serving the country in the capacity of Secretary of state at “no time” did her or to his direct knowledge did anyone serving with him take actions that would undermine the president. With his “anyone serving with him” statement, he also looked to cover his friend John Kelly’s back since Haley named him along with Tillerson.

Tillerson goes on to explain that conversations had with Trump in the Oval Office were candid and frank. He made straightforward recommendations. Once Trump made decisions, Tillerson insists that “we at the State Department” implemented the decisions with their best efforts.

There’s always going to be a “he said, she said” and this one is a story of just that. He said one thing and she’s saying another. While Haley has nothing to lose and nothing to gain by speaking the truth, some wonder whether she’s eying the VP position after Mike Pence, though that seems highly unlikely. Tillerson would have everything to lose if he were to admit that what Haley said as true since it would be considered treason.

Quite a few ulterior motives could be at play, though it may be too soon to tell.

Rex Tillerson may have been looking to create a counter-position against Trump as a sort of a “Devil’s advocate.” If this were the case, it is entirely possible that Haley misunderstood – and this is the way that many on Capitol Hill are trying to spin it.

Donald Trump didn’t have the nicest things to say about Rex Tillerson once he left the position of Secretary of State. Tillerson, in 2018, said that some of Trump’s ideas violated the law. That’s when Trump identified Tillerson as “dumb as a rock” and “lazy as hell.” Mike Pompeo took over the role that Tillerson had, identifying that it was a better fit. Trump has been satisfied with the job that Pompeo did, saying that there’s “Great spirit at State.”

It seems as though there were some definite personality differences between Tillerson and Trump. Since neither of them seemed to get along, it’s entirely possible that Tillerson didn’t get along with Nikki Haley, either. Tillerson told CBS News that it was “challenging” to work with Trump.

Trump may have caught onto some of what was going on, even before Nikki Haley felt the need to call Rex Tillerson out in her memoir. Tillerson only served in the position of Secretary of State for a little over a year before being fired abruptly by Trump in March 2018.

The bad blood has been spilled out into the media for all to see, with plenty of name-calling happening from both sides. In the end, Haley can say what she wants because she’s no longer the US ambassador. She can speak her truth about what she believes happened with Tillerson and Kelly. While it’s poor timing with the impeachment hearing going on right now, there’s likely going to be an investigation at one point or another to determine if there was any foul play by Tillerson and Kelly.

Tillerson seems to be the only one concerned about clearing his name, too. He’s gone on record several times since Haley chose to name the names of those she felt were going against Trump even though they were close aides in the State Department. Kelly has remained relatively silent, choosing not to confirm or deny any of the allegations. It may be smarter to lay low since Tillerson is so quick to deny. It has a number of people questioning what Tillerson may be trying to hide. Perhaps Haley knew everything and got it right on the mark within her memoir. After all, quick denials usually come from those who are most guilty.

  1. People like tillerson and his cohorts, get RICH from the constant wars that PRESIDENT TRUMP is trying to pull the U.S OUT of. (and they do not want that) All these corrupt “players” are seeing is their “cash cow”, (U.S TAXPAYERS MONEY) getting cut off from THEIR lucrative contracts. The time has come to bring OUR soldiers home to protect US, instead of getting killed protected people that hate us, and all we stand for….. AMERICA FIRST, the rest defend your OWN damn countries.

  2. Tillerson did not need the job,after all,he was Chairman of EXXON,one of the largest oil company.

    He must have been honest and upfront with Trump,who prefers YES men and Yes women.Nikki Haley,s Comet is not shining bright,she bit too much than she can swallow.
    Do not forget,she was anti Trump.daughter of an INDIAN professor,immigrant like most of us.

    More drama to come,
    Standby ,her book will sell,make her a millionaire within a few months. Money corrupts .

    1. Tillerson certainly did not need the job and, although the title and honor are tempting, only he knows why he accepted. It was obvious from the beginning that he and Trump did not share the same world view. Additionally, he came to the position with no foreign affairs or diplomatic experience – not a good starting point for the nation’s chief diplomat. As the former chairman of a large, international corporation, he should have been a capable and effective administrator. Unfortunately, he proved to be an aloof, dictatorial figure-head who refused access and cooperation to State Department professionals. Most of the time he was AWOL.

  3. HMQAZI:
    1) Tillerson’s position at EXXON has nothing to do with the case.
    2) The rest of your opinionated and biased screed has nothing
    of any substantive value.
    3) Your comment about her book is pure garbage.
    4) Money does not always corrupt but is often invested in industry –
    which benefits everyone who needs work. Bill Gates is rolling
    in money – but he has created thousands of good-paying jobs,
    a billionaire and many millionaires plus backing charitable efforts.
    5) What have you done except spout unproven and hateful comments?

    1. Hey Bobby – Just because YOU say it’s not so, doesn’t convince the list of readers that YOU have the cat by the tail.
      Grow up!
      Learn to accept other peoples OPINIONS.
      If you do, someday you just “might” garner some respect of your own!

  4. When Trump first appointed Rex Tillerson as SecState I thought it was a brilliant move. After all, Tillerson like Trump was a businessman and could be expected to view the world much as Trump did. Over time, Trump’s businessman’s view of the world has proved to be just what the USA needed to pull out of the Bush/Obama slump and start its economic recovery. So exactly where did Tillerson’s views begin to diverge so radically from Trump’s that he had to be fired? I don’t know. Nicki Haley suggests that Tillerson and Kelly were running their own shadow government because they thought they knew better than Trump what this country wanted. We really need to see a book by Tillerson and Kelly to see what their point of view was. Abraham Lincoln had the same sort of problem with his Cabinet – almost every Cabinet member thought HE should have been President instead of Lincoln, but almost all eventually came to understand that Lincoln’s policies were the best for his war-torn times. Will the same thing happen with Trump and his current and former Cabinet members? Only time will tell.

  5. from what Ive read via emails, (not on Facebook), is that Rex Tillerson found it hard to take orders, as he himself was used to giving orders. That could be the reason? Hard for the former CEO of Excon to take orders?

  6. I have no trouble imagining that Tillerson did not like what Haley wrote. Their differences could be as simple as the different ways men and women often view the same set of facts. I would point out that while Tillerson has denied Haley’s allegations Kelly’s response that his acts were always for the good of the nation lends credence to her story.

Enjoy the remaining portion of the new year. You have been carrying out a wonderful job.

  8. I believe Nikki Haley, to me Rex Tillerson didn’t appreciate not being the “Big Shot” he was at Exxon Mobile (or whichever company he was with previously). Of course he must have felt that he could have done a better job. He may have been “A Plant by the Democrats” for all we know. He didn’t stand by the President, he quickly huffed and puffed.

  9. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear
