Scathing Trump Details in "Anonymous" Senior Official's Tell-All


Explosive details and excerpts are emerging from the book titled “A Warning”, a behind-the-scenes account of the Trump White House, authored by an alleged senior Trump official identified simply as “Anonymous.”

From the excerpts obtained by news outlets, Trump is portrayed as easily distracted, forcing advisers and aides to increasingly simplify briefing materials in a bid to achieve a semblance of understanding from an inattentive President.

The author notes that they have revised their assessment of the overall situation, resigned now to the fact that Trump cannot be changed, in spite of the best efforts from bureaucrats and career officials attempting to steer the President on the right course.

According to “Anonymous”, Vice President Mike Pence would have acceded to a majority of cabinet officials’ invocation of the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

NNP Quote: “I was wrong about the ‘quiet resistance’ inside the Trump administration. Unelected bureaucrats and cabinet appointees were never going to steer Donald Trump the right direction in the long run, or refine his malignant management style. He is who he is.” – Excerpt from “A Warning”

NNP Background: In 2018, the New York Times published an unusual Op-Ed titled “I am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration”, penned by “Anonymous”, a senior Trump official. The author claimed that a “resistance” group of officials and bureaucrats was working from within the White House to thwart Trump’s reckless actions and temper his rash impulses.

A year later, the author has returned with a new book titled “A Warning”, providing even more details and revising his original, optimistic assessment that Trump could be managed; the author now concludes in the book that the President not susceptible to reason and sage advice.

To get both perspectives on these events, we analyzed an article from a left-leaning media source and an article from a right-leaning media source below!

1. This really makes me think it was Nielsen.

It definitely sounds like an ex-staffer justifying their no longer being in cabinet and I believe Nielsen left on her own. Am I wrong about that?

2. Re:

I think there’s some speculation that it might be Nielsen, based on some similarities in the use of certain phrases.
