When asked to respond to Haley's book, Kelly told CBS' "Sunday Morning" that "if by resistance and stalling, she means putting a staff process in place.to ensure the (president) knew all the pros and cons of what policy decision he might be contemplating so he could make an informed decision, then guilty as charged".

In earlier remarks on the program, Haley called impeachment the "death penalty" for the president and said that she did not see any reason to move forward with the move to impeach him.

Haley also told CBS News on Sunday: "It absolutely happened".

"It should've been, 'Go tell the president what your differences are, and quit if you don't like what he's doing.' But to undermine a president is really a very unsafe thing". But to undermine a president.it is really a very risky thing and it goes against the constitution, and it goes against what the American people want. And it goes against the Constitution, and it goes against what the American people want.

"If by "resistance" and "stalling" she means putting a staff process in place.to ensure [Mr Trump] knew all the pros and cons of what policy decision he might be contemplating so he could make an informed decision, then guilty as charged", Mr Kelly told USA broadcaster CBS.

Trump fired Tillerson in March 2018 after their relationship eroded over Trump's handling of Russian Federation and North Korea.

Some of them went to land book deals, including former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and former communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

There was no immediate comment from Mr Tillerson.

In one instance, she recalled a disagreement with Tillerson and Kelly during an Oval Office meeting over a suggestion that the United States should not fund the United Nations agency that supports Palestinians.

Speaking with CBS News' Norah O'Donnell, Haley backed up Trump's attacks on Reps.

In an interview with the Post in her publisher's NY office, Haley dismissed House Democrats' moves to impeach Trump over his pressure on the Ukrainian government to obtain political dirt on an opponent.

Trump's reaction - that both sides had been to blame - was painful, Haley wrote. "I picked up the phone and called the president". "From the standpoint of: don't bash America over and over again, and not do something to try and fix it".

Haley's memoir will be released a week before another, more critical, book by a White House insider - "A Warning", written by an anonymous author described only as "a senior official in the Trump administration".
