Trump: If the ‘GUTLESS’ Senior Official is Real, New York Times Must Turn Them Over to the Government


On Wednesday night, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to rail against the anonymous author of the New York Times op-ed and call on the Times to turn him/her “over to the government” at once.

“Does the so-called “Senior Administration Official” really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source?,” Trump opined in a heated tweet. “If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!”

Trump likewise previously called the op-ed “gutless” during a photo spray during a meeting with sheriffs from across the country in the White House and railed at the Times.

“So if the failing “The New York Times” has an anonymous editorial — can you believe it?” Trump said this afternoon. “Anonymous. Meaning gutless. A gutless editorial.”

He also tweeted “TREASON?”

The official White House statement on the Times’ op-ed, credited to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also called the anonymous author a “coward.”
