Searing Trump op-ed sets off wild guessing game on author

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

Even the Washington Post, no defender of the president, called the op-ed old news, and a "PR stunt".

In a New York Times editorial, the author said President Trump's "amorality" and "impulsiveness" had led to ill-informed and reckless decisions.

I don't know if this will end up being the "deep throat" leak of the Trump Era, but it does seem pretty big: an anonymous "senior official in the Trump administration" just published an op-ed in The New York Times describing an amoral, unfocused, despotic president who has to be reigned in by a secret "resistance" movement among his own political appointees.

"He is not putting country first, but putting himself and his ego ahead of the will of the American people", she said. "To the writer of the oped - you are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions". So is the fact that the author of the op-ed was willing to say so in one of the nation's most influential newspapers.

Some analysts seized on the use of an unusual word - "lodestar" - favoured by Mike Pence, ...

India, US to hold large military exercises in 2019
After the conclusion of the talks, the two sides signed crucial defence pacts and agreed to work together to combat terrorism. Sources said the four leaders set a broad direction, describing the talks as "positive and constructive".

Trump describes the editorial as "gutless".

"You could write a novel about this", said Jamieson, author of the upcoming "Cyberwar: How Russian Hackers and Trolls Helped Elect a President". It's not clear whether the writer holds a cabinet-level position.

"The thing about the op-ed is that reading its text, you can think the writer is 'principled, ' as the NYT did. A person of honor speaking openly would have far more impact".

As President Donald Trump continues to bash the extraordinary criticism from within his administration, Vice President Mike Pence and other officials began denying authorship of an op-ed that has thrown the administration into turmoil.

"Especially early on, when we would be in Roosevelt Room meetings, he would sit down at the table, and get to talking, then turn around to see who was sitting along the walls behind him", the source said.

Seahawks Wanted First-Round Pick In Exchange For Thomas
Thomas' reaction to the lack of a resolution was clear in his post: "The disrespect has been noted and will not be forgotten". The Seahawks will kick off the regular season this Sunday, September 9, with a road game against the Denver Broncos .

"But these successes have come despite - not because of - the president's leadership style, which is impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective", the person wrote. His deputy chief of staff said Pence's office is "above such amateur acts".

"There's nothing in the piece that strikes me as being relevant to or undermining the national security", Dao said.

Some say the essay was the pathetic "me too" effort by The New York Times to match the scoops in Woodward's book published in The Washington Post. "If I weren't here, i believe The New York Times probably wouldn't even exist". In it, the author criticises Trump's moral compass and claimed that members of the administration were working to "frustrate parts of [Trump's] agenda and his worst inclinations". "It may not be a Republican, it may not be a conservative, it may be a deep state person that's been there a long time". The Economy is booming like never before, Jobs are at Historic Highs, soon TWO Supreme Court Justices & maybe Declassification to find Additional Corruption. The first lady, Melania Trump, also condemned the author and called on the individual to come forward. "I know his tweeting and unconventional tactics bother people". The op-ed writer also expresses positive feelings about conservative views and John McCain.

The assertions in the column were largely in line with complaints about Trump's behavior that have repeatedly been raised by various administration officials, often speaking on condition of anonymity.
