Haley: I turned down Trump’s offer to be secretary of state

“I’m very aware of when things are right and when they are not,” Haley told CNN. “I just thought he could find someone better.”

Former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus then offered her the chance to serve as the envoy to the United Nations, which Haley accepted under the condition that she be part of Trump’s Cabinet and the National Security Council (NSC).

“I said ‘I am a policy girl, I want to be part of the decision-making process,’ ” Haley told the news network.
