Trump speculates about the author of "unfair" piece published this week

Trump speculates about the author of

"I would say that Jeff should be investigating who the author of that piece was, because I really believe it's national security".

Asked if he still trusts his White House aides, Mr Trump said: "I do, but what I do now is I look around the room".

The Justice Department said in a statement sent to Anadolu Agency it does not confirm or deny investigations.

Like Haley, Obama spoke out about the way aides were doing end runs around Trump, saying it was irresponsible to think "that everything will turn out OK because there are people inside the White House who secretly aren't following the president's orders".

Trump described the White House as a "well-oiled machine".

Trump has openly criticised and ridiculed Sessions for recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe, but the attorney general has embraced Trump's views on most other law enforcement issues, including leaks from inside government. "If senior administration officials think the president of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment", Warren told CNN.

However, while the president was attempting to slam the anonymous author, he appeared to struggle with the actual word "anonymous".

Pence blasted the op-ed and the Times in the CBS interview, calling the anonymous author a "disgrace". "It was this very feeling of distrust that led to Mr. Trump's election in the first place", the lawmaker writes. "To the writer of the op-ed - you are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions", she said.

State Dept Official Suggests Real Motivation Of Anonymous Anti-Trump Op-Ed
Woodward describes Trump regularly insulting key members of his own team, who are in turn contemptuous of the president. The president said if that person had high-level security clearance, "I don't want him in those meetings".

According to a Times memo, the extra security is a reaction to "the heightened nature of the attention we are receiving right now".

Regarding the writer's identity, he said it "may not be a Republican, it may not be a conservative, it may be a deep state person who has been there for a long time".

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has urged Mr Trump to conduct lie detector tests to find out who wrote the piece.

"People are suggesting it", Trump said Friday, steering clear of explicitly endorsing the proposal. He added: "Eventually the name of this sick person will come out".

None of them voted for a gutless, anonymous source to the failing New York Times.

Mr Trump described his administration as a "well-oiled machine", a contrast to the description offered by his anonymous colleague in the Times. "We fully recognise what is happening".

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a "Make America Great Again" rally in Billings, Montana U.S., September 6, 2018. Trump was in Fargo to campaign for GOP Senate candidate Kevin Cramer.

President Trump took to Twitter to question whether there even was an scribe at all.
