White House Official: 'Dozens of Deep State Operatives Working Against Trump'
Insider speaks out to confirm 'dozens and dozens' of anti-Trump operatives
An anonymous White House insider has spoken out to confirm the presence of the "deep state," saying there is literally "dozens and dozens" of operatives working against President Trump.
The senior official from within Trump’s administration confirmed the existence of the “deep state” resistance, following the recent hit-piece in the NY Times from another anonymous insider.
“I find the reaction to the NYT op-ed fascinating — that people seem so shocked that there is a resistance from the inside,” an anonymous senior official told Axios, admitting that some of them wished they had written the piece.
“I hope he knows — maybe he does? — that there are dozens and dozens of us,” the source added.
According to Breitbart, Trump wrote on Thursday that his success was driving his enemies crazy.
“The Deep State and the Left, and their vehicle, the Fake News Media, are going Crazy – and they don’t know what to do,” he wrote on Twitter.

Trump added that he would continue to “drain the swamp” despite their resistance to his important changes.
“I’m draining the Swamp, and the Swamp is trying to fight back,” he wrote on Wednesday night.
“Don’t worry, we will win!”

First Lady Melania Trump issued a rare statement condemning the anonymous “deep state” official who submitted an op-ed to the New York Times, according to Breitbart.
“To the writer of the oped — You are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions,” she wrote in a statement sent to reporters.
The first lady said that anonymous sources were hurting news coverage across the board.
“Unidentified sources have become the majority of the voices people hear about in today’s news,” she said.
“People with no names are writing our nation’s history.”
She challenged the anonymous author of the critical op-ed of the president to reveal their identity.
“If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have the right to be able to defend themselves,” the first lady wrote.
She also emphasized the importance of free speech and a free press but said that they should be “fair, unbiased, and responsible."
