WHITE HOUSE LEAKS

Vocable (All English) - - Dessin -

On 5 Septem­ber, an un­signed opin­ion piece, writ­ten by a se­nior of­fi­cial in the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion, whose iden­tity re­mains se­cret, was pub­lished in the New York Times. It por­trays the Amer­i­can pres­i­dent as un­sta­ble and re­veals that a “quiet re­sis­tance” within the ad­min­is­tra­tion has banded to­gether to “frus­trate parts of his agenda and his worst in­cli­na­tions” to pro­tect their coun­try. The­o­ries about who wrote the op-ed spread onto both so­cial and main­stream me­dia, while Vice Pres­i­dent Mike Pence, as well as many other top of­fi­cials, pub­licly de­nied writ­ing it. Trump tweeted that the ed­i­to­rial was “gut­less”. A few days later, jour­nal­ist Bob Wood­ward re­leased his new book, Fear: Trump in the White House, in which sev­eral for­mer and cur­rent White House of­fi­cials served as anony­mous sources for the un­flat­ter­ing re­port.
