President Trump expressed his frustrations over an anonymous New York Times op-ed from a senior administration official, describing it as “a horrible thing,” calling on the Times to out the author and admitting he had no idea who wrote it.
“You just look. He was- nobody knows who the hell he is… or she. Although, they put he — but probably that’s a little disguise. That means it’s she. But for the sake of our national security, the New York Times should publish his name at once. I think their reporters should go and investigate who it is. That would actually be a good scoop.”
Trump then went into a rant on “deep state actors” calling them a threat to democracy.
“I mean you look at the Washington Post or the New York Times, I can never get a good story. I mean you look at this horrible thing that took place today, it’s really, is it subversion? It is treason? It’s a horrible thing. You know the good thing about that? Even liberals that hate me say, ‘that’s terrible what they did.’ And it is, really terrible.”
Trump also complained about the news coverage about him and his administration.
“I can never get a good story. I mean, you look at this horrible thing that took place today. Is it subversion? Is it treason? It is a horrible thing. You know the good thing about that, even liberals that hate me say that is terrible what they did. And it is really terrible.”
