'F****** Hates Her': Tillerson Reportedly in Jealous Rage Over Nikki Haley's Success

News & Politics

President Donald Trump’s palace intrigue continued Friday afternoon with new reports about about a brewing enmity between Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.

According to The New Yorker, the bad blood between the head of the State Department and his top overseas emissary has to do with the latter’s success in Asian diplomacy.

In spite of Tillerson infamous inability to fully staff the State Department and Trump’s tense relationship with China amid his threats to North Korea, Haley is “seen as the most effective diplomat in the crisis,” the New Yorker reported.

“The most significant achievement of Trump’s foreign policy—the tightening of economic sanctions against North Korea—was accomplished largely by Haley,” the report continued.

“Nikki’s getting it done,” a senior Trump administration official told the magazine of Haley’s United Nations wins.

Tillerson, on the other hand, was angered by his subordinate’s propensity for “bringing home the bacon.”

“Rex hates her,” the same official said. “He f*cking hates her.”
