NYT Uses ‘Opinion Piece’ This Time in Attempt to Hurt Trump Presidency

NYTOn Wednesday, The New York Times (NYT) took another “swipe” at undermining a duly elected president, President Donald Trump.

It seems that the NYT has been behind just about every negative breaking news story about Trump and this time is no exception.

In an “Opinion” piece written for the NYT, titled, “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration: I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.,” NYT prefaced the article with the following:

The Times today is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers.”

In the past, Trump has been critical of those in the media who publish articles about him without revealing “sources” but rather cite “unknown sources” as “proof” of what they have written.

Trump said prior to his election and similarly at a recent rally:

The “anonymous Op-Ed essay” written by “a senior official in the Trump administration” who is “known” to the NYT is supposed to make the reader believe that the “OPINION” of the writer is some how fact-based.

Acting in your best interests (because you aren’t as intelligent as the writer?) the writer indicates that:

“But we believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.

That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office.”

Immediately, “alarm bells” went off similar to the times when individuals like the former FBI James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence Director James Clapper have spoken about their “loyalty to the country” and their duty to save it because we now have Trump in the White House.

If I were Trump, I would immediately be suspicious of any senior official holdovers from the Obama administration who have recently taken long lunches, perhaps to meet with NYT?

A resilient Trump fired back in response in a tweet under the heading of “The Failing New York Times!”

Trump said:

“Someday when I’m not President which hopefully will be in about six and a half years from now, NYT and CNN and all of these phony media outlets will be out of business folks…they’ll be out of business because there will be nothing to write and nothing of interest.”

Trump went on to explain that what NYT and other phony media outlets do is about an agenda, one of “open borders. It’s about letting people flee into our country. It’s about disaster and crime for our country.”

He continued: “So, they don’t like Donald Trump and I don’t like them because they are very dishonest people.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted a statement blasting the “cowardly” actions of the op-ed writer:

Others on Twitter had their ideas about who the “anonymous” writer could be:

Late Wednesday, Trump called on NYT to reveal the name of the “anonymous source” and turn it over to the government for “National Security purposes.”

Don’t wait for NYT to do the right thing!

Every day NYT continues to make a bigger mockery out of their “news” outlet.
