With All Due Respect

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY NOVEMBER 12, 2019

IN HER NEW BOOK, “WITH ALL DUE RESPECT,” WHICH IS BEING RELEASED TODAY, FORMER SOUTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR AND UN AMBASSADOR NIKKI HALEY WRITES THAT SOME OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S MOST SENIOR ADVISERS TRIED TO UNDERMINE HIM IN ORDER “SAVE THE COUNTRY.”

HALEY SPECIFICALLY MENTIONS FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE REX TILLERSON AND FORMER CHIEF OF STAFF JOHN KELLY. SHE WRITES THAT THESE TWO AND OTHERS BELIEVED IT WAS THEIR DECISIONS, NOT THE PRESIDENT’S, THAT WERE IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF AMERICA. THEY CLAIMED THE PRESIDENT DIDN’T KNOW WHAT HE WAS DOING.

HALEY, WHO IS SEEN BY MANY REPUBLICANS AS FUTURE PRESIDENTIAL MATERIAL, SAID TILLERSON TOLD HER PEOPLE WOULD DIE IF TRUMP WAS ALLOWED TO HAVE HIS WAY.

WHAT THEY APPARENTLY FORGOT, SHE SAYS, IS THAT IT WAS TRUMP WHO WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT, NOT THEM. AS WITH ANY PRESIDENT, IF THEY DISAGREED WITH HIS POLICIES, THEY SHOULD HAVE RESIGNED. 

HALEY IS JUST 47 YEARS OLD AND AS A WOMAN, MINORITY AND EXPERIENCED POLITICIAN, SHE MIGHT BE JUST THE TICKET FOR REPUBLICANS IN 2024. I’M CAL THOMAS.
