Trump and the White House React to Anonymous Editorial


An anonymous senior official wrote an editorial piece for the New York Times claiming to be working against President Donald Trump for the good of the country. Now, Trump is calling for this person to reveal him or herself while top officials say, “not me.”

Claims of the Anonymous Official

The author of the piece, which appeared in the Times on Wednesday, said that presidential appointees are working against their boss. He or she said that they are even considering removing him from office via the 25th Amendment.

“Many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office,” the author wrote. “…many of the senior officials in his 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.

“It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room,” the author continued. “We fully recognize what is happening. And we are trying to do what’s right even when Donald Trump won’t.”
