Four Senior Trump Advisers Deny They Wrote New York Times Op-Ed

A High-Level

That idea was also supported by an unsigned article for The New York Times published Wednesday, which said that "unsung heroes" were quietly working within the administration to frustrate the president's "worst inclinations".

The official said that early on in the administration, some officials quietly discussed invoking the 25th amendment of the US Constitution, which allows the removal of a president judged unable to perform his duties.

Meanwhile, a number of senior officials have denied being the anonymous writer, including vice president Mike Pence, secretary of state Mike Pompeo, defence secretary Jim Mattis and director of national intelligence Dan Coats.

Let's just hope this saga doesn't end like this.

"If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have the right to be able to defend themselves", she said.

White House Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett addresses reporters during the daily briefing at the White House in Washington, U.S. February 22, 2018.

Trump was asked about the piece on Wednesday following an event at the White House.

In one example, former chief economic adviser Gary Cohn reportedly took a letter off Trump's desk to keep him from signing it because Cohn feared the consequences for the USA position in Asia.

Angrily. One of Mr Trump's tweets simply said "TREASON?".

Calling it a "two-track" presidency, the author said Trump works on his own agenda, while others in the administration take actions they believe are in the best interest of the country.

Mr Trump described his administration as a "well-oiled machine", a contrast to the description offered by his anonymous colleague in the Times.

"So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until it's over".

Trump said the book, written by USA veteran investigative journalist Bob Woodward, "means nothing" and called it a "work of fiction".

"Eventually the name of this sick person will come out", Trump added, although he also suggested the person, reportedly a senior administration official, may not exist.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders echoed Trump's remarks in an official statement, saying voters in 2016 did not choose a "gutless, anonymous source to the failing New York Times".
