Melania Trump accuses op-ed author of 'sabotaging' the US

Grin Ivanka apparently unfazed by the reports of a fight between her and Bannon flashed a wide smile as she walked from her house to the Secret Service SUV waiting for her Trump fires back at Bob Woodward book with statements from James Mattis and John Kelly

In the editorial, the unnamed administration official wrote of a coalition focused on thwarting Trump's "worst inclinations". Only this time the stakes are allegedly much higher.

There's no consensus on the anonymous author of the controversial New York Times op-ed published Wednesday, but it's still a topic of online conversation.

The opinion piece, and Woodward's book, which is published next week, follow many news articles during Trump's 19-month presidency that have depicted turbulence at the White House under his leadership.

The person, who wrote the letter, said they are staying on as a staff member of the White House to help the resistance and help the country. But journalists at other papers suggested that the piece by the anonymous official was simply too remarkable to ignore. Fox News host Sean Hannity called the author of the op-ed a "swamp sewer creature who can't stand that there is a new sheriff in town".

Down Pennsylvania Avenue, House Speaker Paul Ryan said he did not know of any role Congress would have to investigate, though Republican Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, a Trump ally, said the legislative body could take part.

"When you think about it it's an fantastic statement of their willingness to make themselves bigger than the entire American system", Gingrich said.

Lewandowski then inferred that the writer is part of the "deep state" - meaning career government employees - after which Berman had to point out that writer appears to be a high-ranking Trump appointee.

The Times said the writer is a senior administration official whose job would be at risk if the person's identity were to be made public.

Trump denied Sessions 'mentally retarded' jab, but he's said it before
Trump has frequently threatened legal action against others he says have wronged him without following through. The coming release of Woodward's book, according to reports, has had the White House on edge for weeks.

As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner. They argued that the op-ed underscored the president's assessment that the establishment is seeking to block his agenda with tactics that do not appeal to average voters.

Make no mistake. Publishing such an anonymous essay was an unusual, though not unprecedented decision by the newspaper of record.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. "To be clear in this op-ed, the writer claims when you talk about taxes when you talk about deregulation and the military that he or she agrees with the president on that matter".

"That's not journalism, that's clickbait", Gutfeld said. He added that he thought it was wrong of the Times not to identify the piece's author.

Dr Glenn Altschuler, professor of American Studies at Cornell University, told The Straits Times: "It is unlikely that this episode, as serious as it is, is anything more than an ever deepening confirmation of a narrative of a chaotic and potentially risky Trump administration".

"I don't really know what's going on in the White House. but it seems to me from outside it's open-ended down there, that there's no confidentiality and not a lot of loyalty down there with a lot of people", he said.

That tweet had meshed with the stunning NYT op-ed, which said Trump has a preference for autocrats and dictators, and "little genuine appreciation for the ties that bind us to allied, like-minded nations".
