President Donald Trump launched a verbal attack Wednesday on The New York Times following its publication of an op-ed written by someone identified only as a senior administration official who claimed to be working with colleagues to thwart the president's agenda.
"TREASON?" Trump said in a one-word tweet Wednesday night.
"We have somebody in what I call the 'failing New York Times' that's talking about he's part of the resistance within the Trump administration," Trump told reporters during a meeting with sheriffs.
"This is what I have to deal with," the president said, calling the op-ed "gutless" and a "disgrace."
The op-ed, which was published online with the headline "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration," details efforts by senior government employees who the author said were "working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations."
