WASHINGTON - US President Donald Trump raged at his staff on Thursday after a new book and an op-ed in The New York Times both confirmed the existence of an internal White House effort to shield the country from the apparent dangers of his presidency. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo condemned the essay. "Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making".
"There's nothing in the piece that strikes me as being relevant to or undermining the national security", Dao said.
As the story has grown, numerous people have come out to deny it, including Pence. His deputy chief of staff said Pence's office is "above such amateur acts".
Colbert also said he took "no comfort" in the fact that there are people in the White House who are trying to do "what's right even when Donald Trump won't".

"I thought I would be more effective by retaining my public role than getting involved in either the treatment of those who were feeling scared or in the actual intervention with the president".
A defiant Trump, holding an event with sheriffs at the White House, lashed out at the Times for publishing the op-ed. In one tweet, he demanded that the newspaper name the source for legal action.
By early afternoon, eight senior officials had disavowed the piece, including Vice-President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defence Secretary James Mattis, while hammering the author for writing it and the Times for publishing it. "If the gutlessanonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for national security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!"

U.S. President Donald Trump unleashed a new attack Wednesday on a book depicting his presidency and White House as chaotic and dysfunctional, suggesting libel laws ought to be changed to protect against what he sees as false reports.

Trump described the writer of the opinion piece as someone "probably who is failing and probably here for all the wrong reasons".

"No-one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis", he/she writes. Reading off a list, he said nobody had matched his administration's accomplishments, touting the country's economic gains since his election.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, for her part, seemed more flippant during an interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News on Wednesday night. The MSNBC contributor claimed that Trump wants to arrest whoever it is that wrote the piece, though it is not clear what charges could be brought against someone for sharply criticizing the president.
"I'm not sure it matters", Conway said.
"The New York Times and CNN and all of these phony media outlets will be out of business, folks".
