WHITE HOUSE LEAKS

Vocable (Anglais) - - Décryptage -

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.
