Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley wrote in her new memoir, “With All Due Respect," that former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former Chief of Staff John Kelly tried and failed to recruit her to subvert President Trump in order to "save the country," according to the Washington Post.

Why it matters: Haley's allegations add to an already long list of accounts of aides seeking to undermine Trump in the early stages of the administration, including reports that advisers took documents from the president's desk to prevent him from signing them.

Former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly joined the board of Caliburn International, an organization known to operate shelters for unaccompanied migrant children, reports CBS News.

The backdrop: Prior to jumping into the Trump administration in January 2017, Kelly sat on the board of advisors for DC Capital Partners, now the owner of Caliburn. During Kelly's tenure in Trump's White House — first as Secretary of Homeland Security and later as chief of staff — the administration implemented aggressive new immigration enforcement measures. Caliburn International — which owns Comprehensive Health Services, the only private company operating such shelters, per CBS — counts Florida's Homestead facility among its locations, has successfully sidestepped inspections by state child welfare regulators.
