Trump was incensed about the column, calling around to confidants to vent about the author, solicit guesses as to his or her identity and fume that a "deep state" within the administration was conspiring against him. Only this time the stakes are allegedly much higher.

On Wednesday, a senior Trump administration official wrote an anonymous op-ed in the Times in which they blasted the president's "amorality" and criticized him as anti-trade and anti-democracy.

It is also a contrast to the description in Watergate reporter Bob Woodward's upcoming book, which quotes chief of staff John Kelly as saying the Trump White House is "crazytown" with a president who has "gone off the rails". "The @nytimes should be ashamed and so should the person who wrote the false, illogical, and gutless op-ed", spokesman Jarrod Agen said on Twitter. But journalists at other papers suggested that the piece by the anonymous official was simply too remarkable to ignore.

The piece described a "two-track" presidency in which Trump says one thing and his staff consciously does another, citing the president's alleged preference "for autocrats and dictators".

"When you think about it it's an wonderful statement of their willingness to make themselves bigger than the entire American system", Gingrich said. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called on the anonymous official to resign.

"You should not be lapping up the benefits of being a senior administration official, no doubt while scouting for lucrative opportunities for when you leave your post", she said. Look the person in the eye, tell them what you think.




"But the real difference will be made by everyday citizens rising above politics, reaching across the aisle and resolving to shed the labels in favour of a single one: Americans".

Both the book and the op-ed have painted a portrait of an administration that is increasingly at odds with the president's impulses. "Anonymous leaking won't take down Trump". Many people on Twitter believe he is.

"I will say that it has not been our practice to do anonymous op-eds for the reason that kind of goes along the lines of.if you are making an argument, you should have the wherewithal and the belief in putting your name to that argument", Marcus said". He added that he thought it was wrong of the Times not to identify the piece's author.

Trump had arrived in the state to campaign on behalf of Republican candidates amid an intensifying battle for control of Congress ahead of the November midterm elections. It declares that the author is part of the "resistance" inside the Trump administration. "What is the point of a secret cabal if you don't keep it secret?".

"I don't really know what's going on in the White House. but it seems to me from outside it's open-ended down there, that there's no confidentiality and not a lot of loyalty down there with a lot of people", he said.

The Times said in a note appended to the op-ed that it knew the author's identity but that "publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers".
