Trump Rages Against ‘Gutless’ White House Official Who Wrote Stunning NYT Op-Ed
President Donald Trump tore into the anonymous source who penned the shocking New York Times op-ed from a senior White House official who admitted to trying to “stop” the president.
Speaking at a White House event on Wednesday, Trump raged against the unnamed person.
“Nobody has ever done in less than a two-year period what we have done,” he said. “So when you tell me about some anonymous source within the administration, probably who’s failing, and probably here for all the wrong reasons…”
Trump pivoted from there to blast the Times. But later, he doubled back to what he termed the “gutless editorial.”
“So if the failing “The New York Times” has an anonymous editorial — can you believe it?” Trump said. “Anonymous. Meaning gutless. A gutless editorial.”
In the Times op-ed, the unnamed official wrote that they and others within the Trump administration are working to “stop” the president.
“The dilemma — which [Trump] does not fully grasp — is 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,” the official wrote. “I would know. I am one of them.”
