Nikki Haley, the now U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, turned down President Trump’s offer to be secretary of state, she said in an interview with CNN.
“I’m very aware of when things are right and when they are not,” Haley said. “I just thought he could find someone better.”
Haley worried her resume wasn’t a right fit for the position. Her experience as governor prepared her to handle a lot of things, but being in charge of American diplomacy wasn’t one of them.
After she declined the offer, then White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus called her to ask about being the ambassador to the UN.
