The writer of an anonymous New York Times op-ed last year is claiming in a new book that senior administration officials thought about quitting as a large group in a “midnight self-massacre,” but decided not to out of fear of destabilizing the government, The Washington Post reported.
The Post obtained a copy of the book “A Warning” by the writer who is described as “a senior official in the Trump administration.”
The person who wrote the book last year anonymously wrote an op-ed in The New York Times, claiming then that there were efforts from staff to "thwart" President TrumpDonald John TrumpBiden allies see boost in Tuesday's election results Sanders vows to end Trump's policies as he unveils immigration proposal Republicans warn election results are 'wake-up call' for Trump MORE's worst instincts.
In the new book, the author pushed back on their former sentiments, writing “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,” according to the Post.
The official also reportedly wrote that officials wake up “in a full-blown panic” due to Trump's tweets.
