Pence and Pompeo deny writing anonymous ‘resistance to Trump’ opinion piece
Vice-President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have denied writing an explosive and anonymous opinion piece that said an internal “resistance” is working to thwart parts of Donald Trump’s agenda, as the White House seeks to rout out the author.
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are publicly denying that they are the author of an anonymous New York Times op-ed detailing a “resistance” movement inside the Trump administration, in an extraordinary demonstration of how the editorial has rattled the highest levels of government.
The editorial — which was published on Wednesday from “a senior official in the Trump administration” and accuses the president of acting “in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic” — has kicked off a wild guessing game inside the White House and out about the author’s identity.
