Vice-President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have denied writing an explosive and anonymous opinion piece that said an internal “resistance” is working to thwart parts of Donald Trump’s agenda, as the White House seeks to rout out the author.
Trump reacted with fury to the anonymous account, published on Wednesday, which was written by a current Trump administration official and claimed an internal White House coalition is working to frustrate “his worst inclinations” until he leaves – or can be removed from – office. Trump derided the article as “anonymous, meaning gutless” and lashed out at the news agency for publishing it, insisting “they don't like Donald Trump and I don't like them because they're very dishonest people”.
In a message on Wednesday evening, Trump insisted: “If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to the government at once!” Pompeo, who is visiting New Delhi, told reporters on Thursday: “It's not mine” after fevered speculation over who wrote the article seized Washington. Pompeo accused the media of trying to undermine the Trump administration and says he finds it “incredibly disturbing”.
