Trump Cabinet members deny authoring anonymous NYT op-ed

You might expect that Trump - who famously hates the "failing" New York Times - would not enjoy this little op-ed. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous ...

While the official says that this cadre of administration insiders should not be associated with the "resistance" of the left, they believe that the president's actions are "detrimental to the health of our republic".

Portions of Fear: Trump in the White House that have surfaced in the press this week have described senior aides attempting to contain an unhinged, unqualified Trump as he lashes out against those close to him. The article infuriated Trump - "TREASON?" he asked in a tweet - and set off a quest in Washington to find out who wrote it.

"Speculation that The New York Times op-ed was written by me or my Principal Deputy is patently false".

The official described a "two-track" presidency in which Trump says one thing and his staff consciously does another, for example with regard to what he called Trump's "preference for autocrats and dictators". "Let's go in", Trump said, adding a string of curse words.

The NYT article, however, may prove more damaging to Trump given the author claims to be a senior member of his team.

On Wednesday night, Trump tweeted a demand that if "the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!"

Trump said that did not take place. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Pompeo said he would resign if he could not carry out the president's agenda and took a shot at the Times for running the piece.

The book follows the January release of author Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury, which led to a rift between Mr Trump and Steve Bannon, his former chief strategist, who spoke with Mr Wolff in terms that were highly critical of the President and his family.

The writer claimed. "Most are working to insulate their operations from his whims".

After Mattis hung up the phone, he told one of his aides, "We're not going to do any of that".

The text of the op-ed was pulled apart for clues: The writer is identified as an "administration official"; does that mean a person who works outside the White House?

Given that much of the focus of the piece is on conduct in worldwide affairs, the spotlight will probably shine the brightest on the president's foreign policy team - in the Department of State, National Security Council and Department of Defense. There is a quiet resistance within the administration of people choosing to put country first.

Sanders said the administration was "disappointed, but not surprised, that the paper chose to publish this pathetic, reckless and selfish op-ed".

Almost 62 million people voted for Trump in the 2016 elections, earning him 306 electoral college votes against 232 for his opponent.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the book is "nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the president look bad".

The decision was in the purview of James Bennett, editorial page editor, and James Dao, op-ed editor, with publisher A.G. Sulzberger weighing in, a Times spokeswoman said.
