Trump Calls NYT Op-Ed By Unnamed White House Official 'Gutless'

The book said Defense Secretary James Mattis has purposely not acted on a presidential directive to assassinate Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, and that former Trump economic adviser Gary Cohn once removed a document from the president's desk that would have ended a trade deal with South Korea.

"It seems unlikely to me this person is a holdover when the person is praising the tax cuts - praising deregulation, talking about the fact that they like many things that happened", Berman told the stonefaced Trump defender. Following so quickly on the heels of the Woodward book, however, the New York Times essay will make for a one-two punch that will be hard to shake off.

Coming on the heels of a new book by the journalist Bob Woodward, which paints an apocalyptic image of the Trump administration, makes it "very timely" and "helps focus the public conversation" on the appropriate role of government officials, Greenberg said.

The anonymous author wrote in the Times that where Trump has had successes, they have come "despite - not because of - the president's leadership style, which is impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective". But that doesn't mean it was a no-brainer to publish.

The piece says administration officials have discussed the possible use of the 25th Amendment. "Anonymous, meaning gutless. A gutless editorial".

Sanders may not want to respond to media inquiries about the op-ed, and she probably won't address some of the questions posed by Twitter users either. "One being the inevitable criticisms the Times op-ed page and the Times as an institution would face".

"This suggests Anonymous is not member of Cabinet or senior WH official, in which case it should not have been printed".

Ben Sasse of Nebraska - a frequent critic of the president - said the views in the op-ed were "not surprising".

"After proper and extensive vetting, we would have run the piece". "Though rare, anonymity is warranted in extraordinary circumstances". "We're going to be much more measured".

"In other countries. they sometimes call this a coup", Wallace said on MSNBC's Deadline: White House, referring to the article's assertion that there is a "resistance" made up of administration officials which aims to protect the republic from Trump's "amorality".

"I really can not say". There would have been a lot of internal discussion. "I think this is maybe the fourth time we've done it in the last three years", he said. "Clearly it would not be my decision alone, and I can not say definitively that we would have gone with it or we would not have gone with it". "Who is the intermediary?"

"Americans should know that there are adults in the room", the op-ed states. Trump called the move gutless and demanded the Times reveal the author's identity "for national security purposes".

As of this writing, more than a dozen Trump Administration officials have denied writing the anonymous essay published by the New York Times.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said in a statement: "Speculation that The New York Times op-ed was written by me or my principal deputy is patently false".

Now the even bigger challenge falls to Dao's colleagues in the Times newsroom, which is separate from the opinion section.

The column has set off a wild guessing game on the author's identity.
