Anonymous Trump official pens damning NYT op-ed

Many senior officials in the Trump administration have been working from within to frustrate parts of the president’s agenda to protect the country from his worst inclinations, an anonymous Trump official wrote in a column published by the New York Times on Wednesday.

(Reuters, NYTimes) –

US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP:

“In what I call the failing New York Times, talking about how he’s part of the resistance‚Ķ”

A damning inside account of the White House rocking the Trump administration Wednesday.

The New York Times published an anonymous op-ed entitled, “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration.” The author, a senior White House official, claims that “many of the senior officials in [Trump’s] own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations. I would know. I am one of them.”

After the news broke Trump lashed out at the author and the media:

US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP:

“When you tell me about some anonymous source in the administration is failing and probably here for all the wrong reasons. And the New York Times is failing!”

The author of the piece calls Trump’s leadership style “impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective” and worse – says the president is amoral.

The bombshell editorial lending credibility to Bob Woodward’s new book “Fear: Trump in the White HOuse” which portrays the president as erratic and not trusted by his aides. Which Trump tried to dismiss as a work of total fiction.

But on the bombshell op-ed he tweeted, simply, “TREASON?”
