Yet another day and Donald Trump is back in the news, however this time it is his fury that is making the world go bonkers. New York Times has published an account on Trump, damaging more than just his image.
Donald Trump while reacting to an anonymous account written by a current Trump administration official, exhibited an outburst of anger. The account claimed that an internal White House resistance is presently working to “frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations” until he leaves the office or is officially dethroned from his position.
The op-ed, published in the New York Times on Wednesday, claims to reveal the reality of Donald Trump. The anonymous author describes Trump as amoral, “anti-trade and anti-democratic”, and also claims that the President is more often than not making “half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions”.
The account also establishes that there was a possibility of removing Donald Trump from the office via the 25th amendment, which permits constitutional mechanism to consent for the replacement of a president, who is unable to fulfill his responsibilities, but the headquarters decided against it. Adding “So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until – one way or another – it’s over.”
The furious president responded to the article at the White House late of Wednesday, describing the word anonymous as gutless, and describing the author as “some anonymous within the administration probably who is failing and probably here for all the wrong reasons”.
Often describing media as fake, even this time the President mocked and called the New York Times “failing” and asserted “they don’t like Donald Trump and I don’t like them because they’re very dishonest people”.
The frustration did not stop here, he further went on tweeted and simply wrote “Treason?” In his follow up tweet, he said: “If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!”
He insisted that writing an op-ed does not violate any law in the United States legal code, conversely the author in contrast to Trump’s Democratic critics states that “ours is not the popular ‘resistance’ of the left”, but a coalition that wants the administration to flourish. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous.”
The op-ed comes just a few days after the veteran journalists Bob Woodward’s book Fear, were published in the Washington Post. Challenges are dawning to climb the ladder in Trump’s life and it looks like his own administration is ready to dis-own him.
