Trump Weighs in on NYT Anonymous Source; Here's What He Says has to Happen Next
President Trump is none too happy with the New York Times for publishing a piece from an anonymous senior White House official who wrote a scathing piece describing the internal “resistance” that’s happening inside the Trump administration.
The president has demanded that the NY Times hand over the name of the anonymous author of the piece, stating that this individual represents a threat to the national security of the United States.
President Trump is demanding, “for national security purposes,” that The New York Times reveal the name of the anonymous senior White House official who penned an op-ed describing the internal “resistance” to Trump within the administration.
On Wednesday, the Times published an op-ed titled, “I Am Part of the Resistance Within the Trump Administration,” in which the self-described senior official claims that “many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.”
“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 official writes, describing a “two-track” presidency. “This isn’t the work of the so-called deep state,” the anonymous author writes. “It’s the work of the steady state.”Trending:
In a series of tweets and statements on Wednesday and Thursday, Trump condemned the “gutless” author and said that he or she poses a threat to national security. “TREASON?” wrote Trump in one tweet. Speaking to the press Wednesday, Trump slammed the “failing New York Times” for publishing the “gutless editorial.”
“Does the so-called ‘Senior Administration Official’ really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source?” he tweeted later. “If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!”Advertisement - story continues below
Late Wednesday night, Trump suggested that the reason the “resistance” is pushing back is only because he’s successfully “draining the swamp,” like he promised to on the campaign trail. “I’m draining the Swamp, and the Swamp is trying to fight back. Don’t worry, we will win!” he wrote.
Leaks and internal sabotage and resistance to the president and his agenda for America have been constant problems for President Trump ever since he first stepped foot in the Oval Office in January of 2017.
It seems that a lot of the political intrigue that he himself is being accused of engaging in with Russia is actually taking place under the White House roof with his own staff, many of which are the individuals who are accusing him of collusion to begin with.
Hilariously, the irony of this is completely lost on these individuals.
Let’s hope we get some answers soon and the individuals who are sabotaging his presidency are ousted from his administration.
