Trump hunts 'resistance' against him in White House

A spokesperson for First Lady Melania Trump is accusing the hosts of The View of disparaging the Slovenian-born wife of the President because of her accent. View co-hosts are seen above left to right Whoopi Goldberg Abby Huntsman Joy Behar and Sunny H

It would look like the Times was trying to stir the pot if it were not a high-level person, said Chuck Todd, host of NBC's "Meet the Press".

"We considered using the process spelled out in the constitution but decided that would be too messy and opted for trying a slow-motion coup instead, but then we chose to undermine that by going public about it anonymously". "Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making", the official wrote, adding that aides work around Trump to make sure his desires are not enforced.

By early afternoon, eight senior officials had disavowed the piece, including Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary James Mattis, while hammering the author for writing it and the Times for publishing it.

"The Deep State and the Left, and their vehicle, the Fake News Media, are going insane - & they don't know what to do", he tweeted on Thursday morning.

Ruth Marcus, deputy editorial page editor of The Washington Post, told Todd on MSNBC that if the author had come to the Post it would provoke a serious discussion, because the newspaper has not in the past run anonymous op-ed columns.

Trump and his inner circle have been in damage control all week fighting similarly themed revelations contained in Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward's upcoming book, "Fear: Trump in the White House".

As the initial scramble to unmask the writer proved fruitless, attention turned to the questions the article raised, which have been whispered in Washington for more than a year: Is Trump truly in charge, and could a divided executive branch pose a danger to the country? "I don't know how Donald Trump is going to react to this".

Behar and Hostin took Melania Trump to task for her criticism of an anonymous op ed in The New York Times by a writer who says they are part of an internal'resistance to President Donald Trump

Donald Trump is determined to find the identity of the anonymous staff member who penned a scathing op-ed, and he reportedly will try to have the writer arrested once they are discovered. She praised the free press as "important to our democracy" but assailed the writer, saying, "You are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions".

Some of the guess-the-author game centred on whether the author worked in the White House or a federal agency.

"The Vice President puts his name on his Op-eds. Our office is above such amateur acts", wrote Jarrod Agen, spokesman for Mike Pence.

Trump wrote, "Does the so-called "Senior Administration Official" really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source?"

But Mrs. Trump struck a different note than her husband, prefacing her criticism by proclaiming the importance of first-amendment freedoms.

Some of that concern was seen on the third day of a contentious Senate confirmation hearing for Mr Trump's nominee for Justice of the Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who was grilled by Democrat Party Senators over his opinion on key issues including whether he believes a sitting President can be indicted. I know the paper.

Although the writer says they support the administration's objectives, its successes have come in spite of the president, who is described as impulsive, erratic and amoral, someone whose "misguided impulses" need to be controlled for the good of the US.
