The White House Is furious after The New York Times published an anonymous op-ed purporting to be from a senior White House official that exposes the reality of Trump’s White House.
President Trump was the first to speak as he met with NYC law enforcement, calling it a “disgrace,” adding “Anonymous. Can you believe it? Anonymous. Meaning gutless. A gutless editorial.”

“The New York Times is failing… The New York Times and CNN and all these phony media outlets will be out of business.”
Which was followed shortly by a strongly-worded statement from WH Press Secretary Sarah Sanders:
Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Anonymous New York Times Op-Ed:
Nearly 62 million people voted for President Donald J. Trump in 2016, earning him 306 Electoral College votes — versus 232 for his opponent. None of them voted for a gutless, anonymous source to the failing New York Times.
We are disappointed, but not surprised, that the paper chose to publish this pathetic, reckless, and selfish op-ed.
This is a new low for the so-called “paper of record,” and it should issue an apology, just as it did after the election for its disastrous coverage of the Trump campaign.
This is just another example of the liberal media’s concerted coverage of the Trump campaign.
This is just another example of the liberal media’s concerted effort to discredit the President.
President Trump has laid out a bold and ambitious agenda. Every day since taking office, he has fulfilled the promises he made. His accomplishments in less than two years have been astounding. The individual behind this piece has chosen to deceive, rather than support, the duly elected President of the United States. He is not putting country first, but putting himself and his ego ahead of the will of the American people.
This coward should do the right thing and resign.
Social media is on fire with responses:
